So the modem 1 foot or 8 feet from the master socket could have an impact then.
The engineer, if he knows what he is doing - as the contractors that do many FTTC installs are utterly clueless - would refuse to install the modem further away from the master socket than the supplied VDSL2 cable allows. (I think it is 1.5m).
If a free data extension cable is ordered, for use if required, (this is automatically done on Infinity - or at least it was until the latest product change so I can't be sure now), then that can be installed to provide a socket for the modem at any distance up to 30m from the master.
