Coax Wall Plate Replacement?
I am having a Granite backsplash cut for the kitchen tomorrow. There is an old cable coax plate that is in the corner of the kitchen that is no longer operable. Our homeowners association switched to Wifi routers a few years ago. I need to tell the remodeling company where I want openings cut in the backsplash tomorrow -- for outlets and a light switch. Should I plan on having a new coax cable outlet installed (there is cable in the walls) even though there is no working cable service, or just cover it up with a blank plate in case I sell my condo in a few years?

Cover it up. Cable is old school as are telephone wire connections. WiFi is in we will communicate wireless in the future unless someone proves that all this "radio frequency" RF around us is deteremental to our health.

For coax, you don't even need a blank plate. You can just cover it.

You can abandon it behind the backsplash, there's no issue because it's considered low voltage wire.
