I'm asking a question on behalf of my brother, who is about to move into a shared student flat for a year and received a Hyperoptic flyer through the door saying that the building is already connected and offering them broadband.
What I'm wondering, given that it's a place they're renting for a year and then having to give back in the same condition as when they moved in, is what the installation actually entails. I've scoured the FAQ and I think I understand, but I want to make certain.
Will the engineers need to drill holes to run the ethernet cable into the flat and/or install a new faceplate into the wall somewhere? Or does it all connect up somehow through the existing BT faceplate, which is simply swapped out for a new one with an ethernet port?
I'm assuming it's the former, in which case I don't know if they would be allowed to go for it.
