I thought this would be the most appropriate forum to post this but if it isn't, please could a mod move it to a more suitable one?
So theoretically speaking... Say I bought a house off plan and when it was going up, I requested that as part of my wiring plans, a cat5e cable be run from where the OR drop line came into the house to the loft where a master socket would be fitted. I expect the connection outside the house would be fairly obvious once the cover of the 'junction box' is removed due to soldered connections and heat shrink...
And moving forwards a number of years - I had the opportunity to go to FTTC and intended to go with PlusNet due to the feedback I've read. At present, PlusNet place an engineer on site as part of the install. Not that they'd need to do anything as I'd have purchased a OR MK2 vDSL iPlate and a Huawei HG612 modem. Would I expect an awkward conversation with said engineer? Or should I just go with an ISP that offer a wires only install?
I think you'll notice from my wording that I'm fully aware of the service agreement rules around the master socket and demarcation points for phone/ xDSL cabling. I'm just trying to understand what I should expect in the 'real world'.
