The main BT cable bundle that serves my house is in the duct marked BT in the picture below , so I am wondering/hoping that I will get moved from the far away one to this A.I.O cabinet? This would mean I could get true infinity speeds so I'll just have to cross my fingers and hope that this will happen.
