Site/House assesment

Hi,

I'm doing so work at my house right now and figured that now would be a good time to run Virgin Fibre into my house. Can anyone advise how this connects to you tel/Cat5/6 network pls. I merely want to future proof it. 

Currently I use Sky and that's using a dish/tel line.

Thanks

Re: Site/House assesment

A dual (Siamese) cable is run from a pavement T up to your house wall where it terminates in a VM omni-box. From this box a phone cable goes to a phone socket inside your house. Coax cable/s also go from box to a hub (cable modem/switch/WiFi) box and/or to a V6 TV Box. Ideally the V6 box needs a CAT5e/6 cable back to the hub, although this can be WiFi, but it’s not recommended. All internal cabling is done by VMs technician except the CAT5e/6 between Hub and V6. If you install internal trunking with pull cords the VM technician may use it, but it’s not guaranteed.
