Comtel Wall Socket and M1000

Hi all,

I bought a flat and I'd like to move my 1Gig fibre broadband. I found a few sockets, one of them is an old Comtel. I was wondering if I can use this for Virgin, and whether I need a manned installation. Area is covered by the M1000, but I'm not sure what the previous owner was using and unfortunately I can't reach out.

Here a few pics:

Thank you!

Comtel box in 1st picture should be ok for VM, just attach cable at the bottom after removing existing one

2nd photo is of a splitter, presume it’s wires to Comtel box. Should not need this as all cables should be in the install kit.

3rd photo is of old VM telephone socket which is not used anymore. If you have ordered a landline phone it will connect to the hub.
