First a general question.. with these fibre optic lines, especially the FTTC technology, am I assuming correctly that when it says fibre optic to the cabinet, does that mean my actual phone line from the exchange to the cabinet is now travelling down a fibre optic line? I know this might come across as a simple question but wouldnt that mean at some point my phone line would have gone off for a few sections while they connected me over?
The second question is more specific. I currently have a cat-5e cable coming from the back room (where my current adsl2+ modem/router sits, to the front room where my laptop sits so I have a wired connection. My aim is to get the master socket moved to the front room and use the existing cat-5e cable to connect it to the HH to a network switch ill have setup in my back room. My question is.. will the cat-5e cable be sufficient for this purpose?
