new home wiring

Hi all am building a new house and currently VM are digging up the area to lay cable. I have never had VM so am unsure how to wire future proof my home heres my ideas thanks,

I am going to run some flexible ducting down my drive before it gets laid will 50mm be enough?

does VM phone line come down this cable aswell? if so can i just run telephone cable to where i want my phone line to be from where VM emters the house.

for multi room boxes do these operate wirelessly now like the new sky q or is there wiring from box to box  or box to hub, thanks

Depends whether the area is completely new (Fibre build) or add on (HFC using coax siamese cables)

If you are in an add on area the phone cable is bonded to the coax. In a completely new area there is no phone service.

 VM use specialised cable (which must run to all boxes). The internet connectons to the main hub can use ethernet (preferrable) or wireless.
