Engineer install of FTTC


[link to this post]
 
I had my FTTC installed 18 months ago by an engineer, he ran cable from my master socket to allow the modem and HH to be situated upstairs. Is this cable run maybe not such a great idea and possible introducing interference ?

Given its twisted pair of cat5 quality probably no great source of interference, but every metre can count in terms of attenuation for VDSL2.

Modem next to master, and longer ethernet to the router is a better option.

so why did they even do that, why not just run ethernet ?? Might if I have some time to spare move things down stairs and see if it changes anything?
