2 broadband cable connections on wall

I have 2 different sized Internet connectors in my wall. One I use for virgin. Does that mean the other one could be used for other providers? I want to switch providers but was under the impression it would mean I need to get an engineer out to switch connections because I'm on broadband. Something I'm keen to avoid during covid.

Does this 2nd connector mean I might already be set up and I can just plug in a new router myself from the new provider? 

 

Thanks

Re: 2 broadband cable connections on wall

Hello

Can you please post a photograph of the sockets, VM uses their own infrastructure and it is different to that of the other providers, what does the box have written on it.

Depends what the second connection is for.

And usually you can’t just “plug in a router” as it will also require some form of modem (VDSL or Cable) or a 2-in-1 hub.
