To scared or lazy to extend your cables?

I have been doing a lot of research and asking loads of questions on this topic lately and it set me thinking.
I was just wondering if people are too scared or too lazy (well watching the olympics more like Smiley ) to extend the data cable for the fibre modem, is this something that PN can offer as a srvice via the BT Openreach engineer to people when they sign up.  I noticed in some old BT fibre trial stuff that BT offered it.

As part of the fibre signup and upgrade process we offer a data extension kit which is up to 30m.

There's not much to tell other than what Chris has mentioned. If requested the data socket can be installed up to 30m away from the master socket.

Thanks Adam.  The way I read it, it wasn't clear if this is a kit that extends just the data cable and also if BT Openreach install it or if we have to.

Brabus,
It's only an option when the engineer actually installs the Fibre.
We wouldn't be able to do it after that point without a call out charge (I don't know what this would be, sorry!).
