‘Home Wiring Solution’ Options?


[link to this post]
 
Hi. Is there a webpage or PDF somewhere that describes what is available from the HWS when fibre broadband is installed on a domestic line? Any info links appreciated. Cheers - R

Not sure I follow what you want?

Can you define what you mean by fibre?

FTTC
FTTP
Cable Broadband

Presentation after the comms provider hardware is usually Ethernet.

BT Openreach simply fit a filter on your master socket and connect the modem to it. They may re-arrange the wiring so that you can use an existing socket as the master but they won't go fitting new extensions for you as their responsibility ends at the BT NTE-5 Master socket, anything from that point on is the homeowners responsibility and if you you want BTO to install extensions that will be chargeable work.

I thought that BT would run an 'extension' so that the modem could be located away from the master socket.

Data Extension cable. Used to be free, but may now be chargeable I think, depending on the ISP. Up to 30m is in the kit.

Thanks, we're getting warm now.

How can I find out what BT/OR are prepared to do when installing the 'Data extension cable'? Would they route the cable from the front to the rear of the house by running it outside if I wanted?

No idea sorry. I don't even know if it is exterior grade cable.

With luck one of the engineers aroiund will spot the thread.

The HWS can come in a variety of forms. Basically, discuss with the installing engineer where you want the modem to be. The engineer can shift the NTE, 'adjust' internal wiring to the same effect, or as Bob said, run a data extension kit up to a distance of 30m. The kit can be run outside as an exterior grade cable exists.

TBH most engineers I know prefer to use the NTE shift route as the cable is 'easier' to run.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, that helps a lot. I presently have a Cat5e cable that carries the A & B wires from inside the current NTE5 to a RJ11 socket where I have/want the modem. I left a bit of slack in the cable both ends, hopefully they'll be happy to use this cable with their adapters either end. If not I get them to run a new cable around the outside. Thanks again.
