Longer Fibre Optic Cable For Hub 5X

Joining in
I don't suppose anyone knows if it's possible to request or purchase a longer fibre optic cable for the hub 5x to reposition it? We have somewhat of an awkward living room with the nearest sockets etc

The engineer was kind enough to supply us with their longest cable which I think is around 5m but doesn't quite stretch to where our previous router was located. We previously had a 10m modem cable running around the living room.

Call VM to get a longer cable installed, it will cost £25.

Check the connector, however something like this should work:
