At an informed guess - no.

Surely the ten metres is just for an ethernet link between the router and whatever goes on the wall on the end of the fibre.

You could do that run yourself in cat 6 and then not need the extended install.

Hyperoptic's delivery to the premises is either ethernet or fibre. These don't slow down with added distance (unlike FTTC or ADSL); they either work or don't. So the extra distance won't make a difference to the speed.

The installer will run the ethernet cable from the entrypoint to the location you want the hyperoptic socket. So you're going to have ethernet running to the front door either way, the only difference will be which person installed it - you or the hyperoptic engineer.

Noting the installer *will* run it around the skirting etc., where as if you arrange it yourself you could get a "tidier", aka none visible cables under floorboards, in the wall etc. solution. Though likely with more disruption and cost.

Hey there,

As blueacid mentioned, the location of the installation will not affect your wired speed. The only thing that should be mentioned is that the range of the 5Ghz network wifi network is up to 5 metres and as it a higher frequency it cannot penetrate walls or solid objects. Therefore if you if want to use that network in your living room, for example, you may consider installing the socket there. However, you can also use a longer ethernet cable to do this. We would suggest cat5e as that is the cable we use.

We hope this helps. If you have any other questions, we're always here to assist.

Indeed, and the install won't be discreet - they'll use cable clamps nailed or hammered into the skirting board, and possibly use cable which doesn't match the wall colour.

Honestly if you need ethernet in a room away from the Hyperhub, have the Hyperhub and socket installed as close to the external access as possible, then use good quality Homeplugs over your mains power circuits, then stick a cheap Netgear Prosafe or TP-Link switch on the other end. Much better solution and no ethernet wires required at all to run through the property. Small initial outlay but great flexibility.

What about homeplug?

Hey there! We are able to relocate the socket to a more convenient or centrally located place in the apartment. This kind of visit is called extension and it is chargeable £30. We can book it in for a date and time you choose, provided we have availability. Before proceeding with the extension, we can always arrange a site survey, so you can discuss the options with one of our engineers. We're available 24/7 and you can reach us any time via phone (0333 332 1111)/ e-mail ([email protected]) / live chat. Let us know should you have any more questions.
