Re: BT/Openreach master socket installation


[re: rog_dee] [link to this post]
 
I would advise against this.

My personal advice is as follows: find a route for the BT cabling to take and have the master in the office. It is one cable, you will hardly notice it on an exterior wall.

OR run ethernet from master location, to the office.

The faceplate solution whilst it will work is not ideal.

ONT (Optical Network Termination) is the FTTP equivalent of the xDSL NTE Master socket. It's a clunky box with ethernet output to a normal router. No modem.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk. Domains, site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Three 4G, tbb tests normally 35-45Mpbs down, 65Mbps off-peak, 9-24 up.
==================================================
If you never think of anything off the wall, you'll never think of anything original.

as you say in your original post that you are at first fix in a barn conversion please think NOW about having RJ45 ie computer sockets in other rooms for smart tv sky box x box in a bedroom etc it is easy to do now and hard work and messy later.Personally i have 28 sockets round the house including 6 in the lounge alone

the ideal situation is to have sockets in every room as required all fed from a central point so maybe if possible find somewhere to put incoming phone line /fibre (in the future) router and patch panel etc

Absolutely 110%. Also as I said previously you also want to use a WiFi planner (Ubiquiti do a good one) and then drop Cat6a to the appropriate points in your ceiling for access points.

Cat6 probably good enough if not over 30 metres per length.

cat5 would be ok for shorter runs but yes as the OP is doing first fix might as well do it right and once (even if cat6 is a pain to connect in back boxes compared to cat 5

Cat5e is not rated for 10Gbps at ANY length. Cat6 on the other hand is for runs under ~50m provided there is no significant length they are run in bunches. As such in most domestic scenarios Cat6 is good enough.

Nobody. But Cat6 can handle that speed, Cat5e can't.
