big debate in that ? but my take yeah with reservations :
newer rg6 ?
all connectors get replaced with new connectors even behind wall plates
they test the lines etc to assure good quality
after all is setup they monitor for about 15 mins at least to make sure u are running clean etc
u should be good to go ??
if they have to run a drop then use cat5e if they will imho
ps glad u didnt wait till the last minute to ask )
^^^^^^^^^^ good read fyi ^^^^^^^^^^^

Make sure they test it first. If they are willing to, have them use cat5. If not, then at least have them try to run new coax. If they won't even do that, at least have them change the endings of the coax. But try for cat5.
