Are you saying that there is a single pavement Tee for both houses? If so, it looks as if you'll share one cable. If the routing is better via your neighbour's house, is he amenable to having it done that way? One option may be for the cable to be run to an omni box fitted to your neighbour's house where the cable is split with one leg being run along walls to your house.


 


Shared tees are common practice (they can carry up to 4 drop lines) & are usually placed at the boundary of 2 properties.

Shared drop lines are not common practice as it can degrade the performance of the connection for both customers. For this reason it is only usually used as a temporary measure.

so they would run 2 lines along the same cable into my next door neighbours garden and split-it to run along my wall?

2 seperate cables through the tee. One goes to your neighbour, the other goes to you. No "splitting" involved.

That is really part of my problem the cable may need to run along side the neighbours one on their property,im fairly sure the guy on the phone said i could run the cable to their omni box and split from there as roger suggested whether this be two cables or split i am not sure.Time will tell as im getting a call back monday to hopefully place an order so the guys can come out and explain my options
