Garden Room V6

  • I've have 50mm duct from a garden room to the front of my house where the VM external wall box is, its 50m. The duct has a Cat 7 cable in it, will VM use this duct? , will they sell me the cable so I can install it and then come back to terminate the ends.

Re: Garden Room V6

A 50m run would cause a serious change in signal levels, so you may not get away with it. If you install a pull line they could just pull the cable through when they arrive. Dropping cable off is not standard practice.

Re: Garden Room V6

What matters is the length of the cable from the cabinet. In some marginal cases VM has pulled RG11 cable as it's thicker than the usual RG6, has a lower attenuation level and can transmit a farther distance.
