You may find that there is somewhere central where all those ethernet cables emerge, including one from the fibre termination or hyperoptic socket. Openreach make the point in their developer guide that whilst the usual location for the ONT is in a cupboard and/or under the stairs, putting the router with inbuilt WiFi access point there will give poor coverage. So they suggest ethernet from ONT to router in a central location, then from the router to anything cabled.

the standard brochure/specification states that the living room and master bedroom are wired to receive digital television, Sky+ HD and Virgin. It obviously doesn't specify how exactly that works.
Be mindful that those triplex\quadplex sockets (SAT,TV and Radio) will go back to an amp and its highly likely they won't be compatible with Sky Q as Sky+ HD and Sky Q LNB's are not forward and backward compatible.

It could be worth looking at the cable type that has been used for those phone extensions. I've seen cat5 used for phone extension wiring, which just need the faceplates changing/rewiring and RJ45 connectors adding on the other ends where the cables go back to the master. That may mean there are more options there than you think. If they haven't used cat5 though, that won't help! Just a thought

Exactly what happened to me. I asked the developer to run some Ethernet cables to various rooms. They did that and left phone sockets on the wall. I just swooped those for proper ethernet sockets.

or as builders and some electricians do, use alarm cable for phone and data - because it is much cheaper and there are 8 wires.

And given the close proximity of the 13A sockets - wait until someone tries to use the upper left, does not inspire confidence. That who set-up is a mess and I would love to see the birds nest behind.

Good morning! When it comes to the New-Build developments and the setups, here's what we can advise you on.

We'd like to confirm something. Do you have a patch panel (with different sockets/ports) and ethernet (LAN) ports connected to it around the flat that could transmit the signal? If that is the case, you can plug the WAN/ethernet cable into the Hyperoptic socket and instead of plugging the other end into the router, you can plug it into one of the ports on the patch panel. Which port on the patch panel you'll choose will be up to you, depending on where the broadband signal from it would be transferred to. For example, Port 1 can be connected to the LAN port in the living room. To have a better signal you can relocate the router from the cupboard and then connect it to that living room port. This is just an example of how you could go about this.

Please note that we weren't the ones installing the internal wiring and that you may need to speak to your concierge/building management about the connection of the patch panel to the ports around the flat.

We hope this information helps. If you have more questions, feel free to send us a private message and we'll gladly advise further.

We wish you a pleasant rest of the day and stay safe!
