    abitana uses it's own active componets and by the design of the abitana cabinet you can not use 3rd party stuff in the future. So you are stucked with abitana for your phone-, TV-, audio-, Internet-active components.

    If you are doing your house new you should do at least 2 sockets in all primary rooms (living, study, master bedroom, etc.) otherwise you will have the socket on the wrong side of the room in 10 years (Your wife will tell you so in 10 years)

    Look at flexibilty, more sockets is better no matter what system you use

    Not quite true you can get a special shelf that fits into the cabinet so you can use your own router etc.

    And your own TV, phone, audio distributor? Didn't see that in the abitana catalogue

    If anybody is interested I have about 80m of Abitana cable spare after my installation. If anybody wants to make me an offer I can organise to post it.
