Now that we are unconditional for our house, and new house is all sorted as well, I started looking at where to get the ONT moved to....  decided. (Current location not ideal for me)

 

So looked up pricing on getting this done.... eeeep.....  I'll be looking at almost $1000 to move the ONT and ETP to a new location in the house. Does this seem right ?

 

If so, I'll have to re-think my plans for the network etc :D

 

With that said... how much is a cabler/sparky going to charge to feed a cable in the floorspace between floors from one end of the house to the other.... 

 

Fun times :D

Can't really comment until you give us some pics and info on how far its being move and what are they have to do 

 

Is is a simply staple it to the outside of the house for 20 metres, or do they have to go from one side of the house to another ( under the floor etc)

 

About 5 years ago I paid about $2K for them to run fibre 2 metres down a pole under a footpath then up through a garage and up  into the house (OHUG)

I think a standard ONT move is $300 or something, we've had a few done, but it depends on how far etc.

 

 

 

You can (with the right APC connectors etc) extend it over standard single mode fibre, but it's entirely unsupported and not recommended :)

From my experience, we’ve always been told the minimum is $199 to move the ONT and the same with the ETP.

As others have said, it does depend how far and how complex the move is.

if you do most of the work for them it will likely be cheaper, ie run conduit etc so all they have to do is feed it where it needs to go

Might be cheaper to just run a network cable through some dry-wall or ceiling. Even replacing a board, re-plastering and painting it will be cheaper.

ONT should is per usual flat fee, ETP is alot harder, as the cable from the street needs to be moved

Spark charge $500 to do this for ONT only, but last two times, they didn't end up actually sending the invoice, despite us requesting the service and it being completed.

My ONT is in the wrong place, just ran some Cat6 from the ONT to the rack where the router etc is.

 

Is it ugly? yes was it free? yes.

Yeah, its at the far end of the property, I'll have to get round there again at some stage, maybe with a cabler/sparky and get a quote for running ethernet thru the ceiling or something. My "office" will be at the opposite end of the property, so hence why looking to move the ONT etc. Its closer to the road, and easy access whereas existing setup its run the length of the house and around the corner :D

 

Red = existing setup   Green = preferred but not at $1000 :D

Can you run CAT6 through the roof space?

 

Also interesting it's just shortening not lengthen a run, so would have though it was just a case of cut and resplice to the new location,.

I'm just pricing off the Chorus site, not spoken to them yet, so it may be cheaper once they see what needs doing.

Are those white spaces in the bar and the garage cupboards? If so they’ll make for an easy job of running some copper.

Is there any Ethernet runs to the lounge and other areas upstairs at all?

 

or are you going to go wifi for all the house except the “office”?

Current owners have just been using wifi - they only have one PC and thats on that floor, so that worked for them. No ethernet run anywhere.

 

I need ethernet for a minimum of 7 devices - server, my PC, wifes PC, 2x Unifi, TV, Xbox. 

 

So my plan is to convert part of garage into an office for my gear, have the ONT etc there as well, and run cable through wall to the small bedroom to the right of the garage which would be my wifes office, and run some cable straight above the garage into the lounge above.

 

But looking like its going to be pricey to move the ONT, so my plans will need to change... either run cable through the ceiling if even possible, or run it on the outside wall to the garage similar to how the fibre is.

Hi what garden is along the back wall, might be easier to get a cable/sparkie to run a conduit in the garden along that wall with a outdoor rated cat6 in it.
