It may depend on how easy it will be to run.

Do you have coax run in the house already?

They might run it outside the house a drill a hole in the wall that way as well.

So the room you want your router in has no coax?

Why does the router need to be in that room? I assume it is because you have a hardwired PC or other device in that room?

Take to cover plates off.

Could be coax that just needs to be terminated.

Can you post a pic?

Anyway, might be worth showing to installer.
Depending on where it is located and what might be located underneath, they still might be able to run a cable for you.

Any chance there is a room that shares a wall that has a cable connection on that wall?

If unused, you might could snake from that wall to the one you need.

Or could run a cable through the wall and put a splitter.
