Can anyone please let me know how I can get one of these plastic covers?
My Virginmedia cable is exposed as it comes out of the pavement and through my new front garden wall. This is very tempting to passing school children, and perhaps some adults, to examine and maybe damage.
I explained to customer services exactly what I needed and asked that they send me the brown plastic cover so that I could screw it to my wall. I discovered that Virgin do not send out this part, but a £100 call out charge would be required!
Virgin Customer Services eventually very kindly waived the fee and a technician visit was booked. Unfortunately when he arrived he did not have the part on his van. I discovered that the part I need is only carried by the "cablepullers". It seems that if I don't need their services I can't have one.
Does anyone know where I can get one of these covers
Originally I was a Virgin.net customer in the late 1990's and came back to Virginmedia in June 2010 when I decided to have the premium fibre optic broadband delivery (obviously before these covers came into general use).
I'm sure you won't be surprised that I'm really not happy that my cable will just "probably be alright", and to highlight the fact that newer customers get a better deal gives me no satisfaction at all!!
Various similar things or go to an electrical trade outlet and ask for a single length of external conduit, a few clips and a cable entry box. (If they don't have "half moon/180 degree conduit you can always cut it down one length and feed the cable through the "cut"). Tenner should do it
