I've moved into a new build with VM pre-wired for 3 locations (lounge, hall & bedroom).
I've got my install next week and want to know if the installers will enable points in all three locations or just one? I've got a second TiVo box already and wondered what the cost of getting the second point in the bedroom activated (already wired in and VM white plate ready).
Will the installers ensure I have points in the lounge and bedroom if I ask them?
If the property s pre-wired, all the access points installed should already be "live" & ready to go. As an existing customer that already has a second box on their account, the install should include this.

To build on Noddie's reply, it would be as well to check that the internal (or external) VM wall box has three cables coming out of it. That may be too simplistic a suggestion because new build cabling, built into walls, will converge somewhere. Maybe you can tell us where?
I suspect that VM intend the Hub to go into the Hall; not a bad idea. There would need to be a mains socket right there too.
Do please keep us posted as it'll be of interest to others.
The 3 points are passive and don't need activation. The equipment connected to the points need activation and if you haven't got an engineer install, then you'll have instructions for telephone based activation.
