I was told my house does not have a coax cable running inside of my house (witch I do) it not I wouldnt be able to watch tv. I assume. I used to have att&t but now I am bringing xfinity in. The tech came out looked at the wires going into my house and told me to hire a electrician to install a cable from the telephone pole into to a box outside of my house so it could enter the house from there. When I called a electrician he asked me what type of cable to run into my house cat 5 or cat 6. I told him I have gigabit internet so cat 6 but I am trying to figure out what cable runs from the phone pole to the outside of the house. If I have the coax cable ran through my house should I have to worry about it? If so what should i have the electrician do? Run a second coax or run a cat 6 cable directly from the pole? I am lost in this process and need direction. So I dont overpay for stuff I dont need.
