Because you have ordered the Data Extension Kit, some engineers will happily re-site the master to where the extension now is, using the existing cabling. This could result in an "impacted" VDSL2 service as per the Impacted
line on the BT Wholesale estimates
. (If the phone number isn't recognised, use the address option. Do not use the pure postcode option).
Alternatively get the engineer to install the cable, then if you can route (decent quality) CAT 5 the same way as the existing extension just connect it to replace the Data Extension one and all should be good. I very much doubt however that any engineer will run the data extension cable without clipping it to skirting boards etc., and would any drilling be needed?
