When I had FTTP (Future Fibre) installed they put the on the wall modem in the dining room, I was wondering how much it would cost to have it moved to a different room.

Could you not just run some cable (cat 6 etc) make sure its outside cable, drill hole nr where router box is dowstairs and run cable to
whichever place you want just drill another hole there and you could plug it in to say another router (so extra Lan points/better wifi) or maybe say a 8-way splitter so loads of spare points. That way you dont touch the original FTTP connection/install. Its cheap and easier enough to do. I did very similar thing last year used this (COPPER UTP Network Cable GigaBit Ethernet Patch Lead 25m [25 metres] ) all you need is good drill/long drill bit. Clips and mastic to cover up hole. Easier enough. Otherwise to get these guys back will cost you an arm and a leg then it will take ages to do waiting for them to come back.

@I8this this seem okay if you want to move it someone else hand run a cable from the point it comes into house but dining room is down stairs and office is upstairs I would have to drill a hole and unwire the optical fibre cable and re-run it along house outside. I would rather pay someone who can do it properly. Plus if I ever have problems in the future with internet the first thing they will blame it on is me moving it myself instead of a engineer doing it and that some how that causing it and means paying more.
@ferguson I've been using old talktalk router for a while because I get better Wifi, I'm going to retry the amazon eero and see if it's any better now that when I got future fibre installed, they did say it takes a week or so before I get full speed.

Okay thanks I will try and chat with them tomorrow. I did ask for it in dining room, but to be honest I expected to be using Wifi for everything included gaming computer but Wifi is just too slow and constantly disconnect in my office/gaming room and it would be a pain to run wires all the way though house.
Most annoying thing is both of them are on front of house and it wouldn't of been to hard for them to put it in office upstairs. I just didn't think at the time. I might try some powerline adapters I've used before with other internet and they worked well, will just have to see what speeds I get.

Oh dear, did you not discuss with the installing engineer where you would prefer to have it in the first place? I would imagine relocating a fibre entry point after the event could prove difficult. Your query is best directed straight to the Future Fibre support team, you can chat with them online after 9:00am tomorrow using the link towards the bottom of this page:
