Extending cable between isolator and splitter

Hi,

I’m a new customer and need to extend the distance between my wall socket and the VM splitter. How can I get a VM extension cable sent out to me for this please?

Re: Extending cable between isolator and splitter

VM can only supply short cables via post.  Otherwise it's a reasonable £25 for a Technician to call and do whatever cabling you need.  Note it's against the T&C's of your contract to extend any VM cables yourself.

Re: Extending cable between isolator and splitter

Hi RMN_81, 

Thanks for your post and enquiry about extending your connection. 

As mentioned by Adduxi, we would need to send an engineer out to arrange this for you. There is a charge of £25 which would be added to your next bill. 

If you would like us to schedule the appointment, then just reply to the private message I have sent you to confirm some details. Just click on the little plum envelope at the top right-hand side of the page to access your inbox.

Thanks,

Hi RMN_81, 

Thanks for coming back to me via private message. 


I have booked you in for the next available appointment. We cannot confirm the appointment time slot, so to view this please sign in to My Virgin Media here: My VM Just go to My Account > Track your orders. You can also view this in the My VM app


Please ensure that someone over the age of 18 is at the property for the time the engineer is there. 


If the appointment is unsuitable or if anyone living at your property has tested positive for Coronavirus, has been asked to self-isolate or has flu-like symptoms then please reschedule the appointment on the same link. 

 

As you're within the first 14 days of a self install, I've been able to book the visit in for you free of charge on this occasion. 


Lets us know how the appointment goes. 


Take care.

Hi Kath,

 

Many thanks for this. Unfortunately I can’t sign into my account online at present as it seems to be linking my email to an old account from 5+ years ago.
