I'm back after a few months of inactivity but now have Telus scheduled in 2 days to install Gigabit Internet, Optik 4K, and 2 home phone lines.
Not sure what type of coax is running from my detached garage to my house but my house is 17 years old so it's likely not the latest and greatest.
Any chance the Telus installer might want to use MOCA adapters to run everything into my house over the existing coax or should I insist on them running fibre from the garage (where they pulled the fibre from the pole to my house) through the existing underground conduit into my house. I'm thinking they could tie a fibre to the existing copper line to pull it through the conduit into the house.
Want to avoid getting a compromised installation the first time which I would think would be next to impossible to get reversed and corrected later, as it will be 'working' but not ideal.
For you experts, would you highly prefer using MOCA over existing COAX to my 4 televisions for Optik TV? I'm thinking I could then turn off the wireless on the ActionTec modem and use Telus Boost for Wifi in my house but have the TV all hardwired. Will be comparing if Telus Boost or my existing Eero Wifi works better.
Appreciate any last minute tips. Eager to see the maxed out speed of Telus on my desktop computer! By the way, will Telus installer run ethernet from one room to another as I have a feeling the modem location will no longer be in my office and I want my home PC to be hardwired to maximize speed. Current Shaw modem is wired via COAX to the office.
