Hi all, I did a quick search on this to see if it's already been asked/answered but didn't find an answer, so here goes:
We're UK residents but have a holiday flat in Nice. We want to get broadband installed and Free.fr looks like the best overall package.
Practical question: do they need to gain access to your property itself to install wi-fi, or is it simply a case of us taking delivery of the router and plugging it into the wall?
Reason for asking: we're only in the flat for two specific weeks over May/June and need to know if we have to try to time the installation for when there's someone in residence, or if it's a remote switch-on at their end (and we just need to connect the router, which could be left at the post office awaiting our collection...?)
Further info if it helps: the property has had a phone line in the past but it's not currently connected. But we do have the correct socket on the wall.
I looked on the Free.fr website and couldn't find the answer, either in French or machine-translated to English.
if anyone can shed any light on this, I'd be most grateful!
