The cable pullers came this afternoon while we were out and laid a cable across the lawn and did a neat job. But the reel of cable and the laid cable are terminated on the wrong side of the house. All the internal phones are connected/terminated about 40 feet on the other side. Does anyone know whether the installers will be able to correct this?
the phone line will be connected to the hub as VM now use VOIP so the issue you need to think about is the position of the hub not where the phones are - if you need extension phones connected i believe VM will add one standard box connected from the hub for you to link into - afaik they wont connect that to your existing extension circuit which is likely connected to your old line
its also normal to place the external box [omnibox] at he front of the property which sounds to be what they have done - if you then want the entry point at the rear [for example] coax cable would then be run internally or externally
Thanks Chris. Although it may be that everything is as it should be - we've sent over your query & details to the relevant team who will be able to provide confirmation, and let us know if any further work is necessary to ensure your installation isn't delayed unnecessarily. I'll get back in touch as soon as I can.
@ChrisDawtrey Please don't create multiple threads for the same issue, it makes it harder for all involved to follow and is against the forum rules. I have merged your two new threads into your existing one.
