Amber Pine, Managing Director of Broadband and Talk at Sky, previously told The Sun that kitchens in extensions are a particular problem nowadays.

"So the steel, particularly now with modern technology, you get those big beams that people use to do their kitchen extensions," she said.

"If people put their hub in that space actually it’s incredibly hard for the hub to access the main home then because it then has to go through those steel beams.
