Is Sky FTTC different from other FTTC?  I had FTTC installed last
month and it wasn't self-install by a long shot.  BT/OpenReach
engineer had to replace the whole line from the pole outside to the
house, drill a new hole in the wall, and fit a new socket.  I have two
boxes: one VDSL2 modem + my own router.
