If everyone did it, we'd end up with all sorts of lash-ups and malfunctioning lines.
Thank goodness we don't wink

is there now a newer bigger, better socket for FTTC?


just a modification to the NTE5 faceplate.

That.s not really the problem....hmmmm. When you get converted, 2 power sockets are needed...1 for the home hub ( fibre ) and 1 for the huwaei modem. However the modem MUST be sited within 1.5 metres of the NTE5. It is not permissible for the adsl lead that connects it to the NTE to be longer than that. Then there is an ethernet lead that connects the modem to the router, approx 2 to 2.5 metres.... So IF I was doing your conversion , one of 3 things would happen. 1. everything would be fitted in the loft ! or 2. the nte would be shifted to a more suitable place. the 3rd option would be that an agreement was not reached and I would leave the premises. .....and another cup of coffee would not sort that one out !

what about the data extension kit option ? Seems to feature in the Wholesale FTTC manual...

"The data extension kit provides a maximum additional 30
Metres distance from the NTE5 and can be routed internally or
externally to an additional data extension point where the
active NTE can then be connected...."

And surely the ethernet cable between the modem and the router can be much longer anyway than the length stated?

Indeed! It can be up to 100m in length, but the End-User would have to supply and install any non-standard cabling.

On 12 metres of 100Mbps ethernet ?

Hmmmm.

I think not.

Or are there hundreds of thousands of us who would get greater throughput on our broadband by putting all wired computers less than 3 metres from the (ADSL) routers we have?

Not a problem then, I have a UPS in the loft which has plenty of spare sockets and the firewall is about 50cm from the master socket.
