Upgrading to bt infinity what does it involve

Currently have bt unlimited bb and thinking of upgrading to bt infinity. The set up is main bt socket is in hall and router and power point are in lounge using a long cable to connect bt phone line to router and the cable goes underneath the carpet. With bt infinity will I have one router with modem and will one power point be sufficient. Also will need a long cable approx 5 mts to connect from main socket to router. I connect wirelessly and the pic is in the bedroom. Is this doable as do not want too many cables? Can one also go back to adsl afterwards? The price is good now but it doubles up after 12 month. I am a low user. Thanks

    These days you just swap the old router for the new router on the day, the leaflet in the box explains it

    It used to involve an engineer visit and a new faceplate on the socket but this is no longer needed

    It needs to be plugged into the main socket but an extension lead should be fine

    You can swap back

    One BT Home Hub one power point .

    Cable runs from BT master socket to router no other cable required if not using ethernet .
    Possible that your current long cable would need upgrading but wait and see if problems in use .

    WiFi should reach bedroom no problem .

    Contract comes to an end then you renegotiate a price with BT as per multiple posts on the forum .
