I just have to say this is a huge mistake on so many levels. But I will shut up now. Signing off.

You are going to put your modem in a bad place, as well as radiated noise you get high level of electrical noise cumming through the mains to your modem.
What about leaving the modem where it is and put an 13 amp mains socket there instead of putting the modem next to a noise source eg. the fridge !.

It was the original plan to put a mains socket near the modems current home, it's just more work. But I see what you are all saying so I'll consider it now. I would have thought these devices had enough shielding to not have to worry too much about this.

They do for the average setup. I wouldn't class behind the fridge as the average modem setup. I would put the fridge right beside an electrical cooker (any 13a appliance to be honest) on a list of where not to put my modem or any cable carrying the VDSL2 signal.

Placing router anywhere near the fridge is a bad idea :-X
In or outside any metal cabinet will impair the signal see link below

I'll test a file transfer between 2 PCs over wifi with the router on top of the fridge.
I would suspect that close to the fridge the signal might be impaired since it'll not go through metal, but then we have signal reflections also. I won't put it in the fridge lol.

Moved the router so it's on top of the fridge. Everything working just as good and wifi signal gives me full internet speed everywhere in the house now. All PCs are wired so not fussed about local transfer speeds.
The HG612 is still connected to the master socket by the front door.
