Can you move the Fibre connection to the other side of my house

When installing the Fibre to my house it has been installed in the kitchen.

Can I get an engineer to move the connection to my living room on the other side of my house?

To this end I can then add ethernet cables to increase my speed without trailing it through my house

Re: Can you move the Fibre connection to the other side of my house

Hi.
At the moment that would be classed as a non essential job, so would not be able to book something like this in.
After the lockdown it is something that can be looked into, but there would be a charge to relocate a piece of equipment.

Thanks Scott

I thought that might be the case.

Do I request through this forum or call or chat? What's best?

Hi. You would need to call in once the lockdown is over.

Thanks

Scott

the charge will be £99 - always worth thinking of other options - a good 3rd party router could be bought for that and an ethernet cable to connect the 2 is easily hidden if you want them in different rooms

Hi 

 

could you clarify what ‘after lockdown’ means? Do you mean 17 May when households can mix inside or late June when all restrictions are potentially lifted? 

many Thanks

Martin

Hi 

 

what do you mean when you say ‘lockdown’ is over? Do you mean in 2months when all restrictions are potentially lifted?

 

many thanks

Martin

Be aware, VM do not install ethernet cables.  If you need cables installed you will need to do this yourself, or a local electrician could do the job.  Remember cables can be run externally, if that's easier, they don't have to be inside.  Use a good quality external Cat 6 cable.
