I’m in the process of setting up star wiring in my home. At the moment I’m trying to get a better understanding of the requirements for wiring for an Ultra-Fast Broadband connection. Reading through the Wiring Homes For Fibre guide, put out by Chorus, it states that three cat5e (or cat6) cables should run from the star point to the External Termination Point. This seems excessive from my lay-persons perspective. Are three cables really required?
