I have been reading that the fibre modem itself needs to be near master phone socket and as a result will need power. The location of my phone socket is in a hallway and is, straight line distance, about 4 metres away from the nearest electrical socket inside the living room on the opposite side of the hallway.
My current ADSL setup has the combined modem and router in an upstairs office connected to the downstairs hallway phone socket via an extension. This arrangement will no longer work since the modem has to be downstairs. I will install the new router in place of the old one in the office and then run an ethernet cable downstairs to the fibre modem.
On the day of the fibre install, will it be sufficient for me to simply provide a double electrical socket (for modem and router) extension reel for the engineer and then worry about a more permanent solution later? Or will the engineer want to see something finalised and safer on the day before he leaves?
