Re: [TV] Basic FibeTV questions
You're renovating the rooms, but it's not practical to run coax between them? Huh? Grab a drill and a studfinder, make sure you're not going to hit anything, drill a hole, push coax through to the other side of the wall, install a faceplate (or jack), etc...
Normally the VDSL2 modem is installed next to your demarc and connected to the existing home coax wiring so that all coax-served rooms in the house are usable.

I am puzzled though that you have no TV outlets in the apartment. Even in buildings 50 years old, TV has been installed by running coax on the outside of the building to 2 or 3 rooms. Running coax in an apartment should be relatively easy. White, Ivory & Beige coax can be inconspicuously threaded along the baseboard. If you are doing renovations it should be even easier, remove the baseboard and hide the coax behind the baseboard.
This looks too much like trying to share an Internet / TV connection with another apartment adjacent (which happens more than you might think).
Just remember this, 2 modems cannot be connected to a Bell circuit at the same time. While you may be able to alternately connect different modems to a Bell Internet circuit, the TV login requires a login that Bell doesn't give to the homeowner.
Renovate, run the coax; end.
