Infinity Data Kit


[link to this post]
 
Can someone confirm exactly what the 'Data Kit' element of the Infinity install is? Is it CAT5 from Homehub to PC or an extension from master socket?

It's a hardwired extension up to 30metres from the existing master socket to a dedicated VDSL socket. I expect it is standard CW1308 but not sure.

Tea and biscuits can produce a move of the master socket instead.

Oh - it's nothing to do with Infinity. It's a standard facility for and Openreach FTTC installation. There are other suppliers.

It's a hardwired extension


it plugs in the front surely ? RJ45 Cat5 extension.

"If as part of its Order installation details the Communications Provider requests provision of the GEA-FTTC Home Wiring Solution, the BT engineer, on agreement with the End User, will provide either:
(a) an internal data extension kit: or
(b) an external data extension kit
as further described in the Handbook. Alternatively, the BT engineer may, at BTís discretion, relocate the End Userís current NTP provided that it is up to a maximum of one hourís work from the time the BT engineer commences work on arrival at the Site and is undertaken to the extent necessary for engineering and safety reasons."

In reply to a post by nelix01:

When I got a BT engineer install of the original ADSL probably 10 years ago they fitted the standard two port ADSL faceplate on the master socket downstairs. They then ran an extension cable from there up to an ADSL only port in the computer room upstairs.

I'm hoping the new VDSL signal will go over the same piece of wire when it gets fitted next week.

the Wholesale info suggests that the data kit can be pre-ordered, an on site decision or prevented by the ordering CP.

From what I have been reading, the data kits currently free of charge as part of the Openreach GEA-FTTC provision. Just interested to know the specs of what is being supplied.
