I don't have a Virgin Media wall socket

Joining in

We've recently moved into our new hour and we received our HUB 3 along with the isolator cable but we don't seem to have a VM wall socket even though we was told that our property has access to Virgin. How do we get one installed?

Hi tyked12 

VM only send out the QuickStart pack if the premises previously had VM.

The previous occupiers may have removed the VM box and cables.  The internal boxes may have the NTL or Telewest insignia on instead of VM , if so they are names of the original cable telco's and should work.

There should be an external omnibox, often brown or gray, If there is then try tracing the cable/s from it to see if there is an actual internal connection point..

If all that fails then call the pre-installs team on 0800 052 1734 and asked for a manned installation.

They are open  8:00am to 9:00pm  Monday to Friday, and 8:00am to 6:00pm Saturday and Sunday
