I have just signed up and spent 30 minutes of my time (unsuccessfully) trying to get information from the pre-install team as to whether I needed a pre-install visit to get Virgin cables underground from the CAT manhole into my property.
The CAT manhole used to be in front of a garden wall (and I understand cables would normally be drilled through the front garden wall to access the property).
Because I am creating a driveway and have demolished the garden wall, the Virgin cables need to go underground from the CAT manhole into my property.
Has anyone done this? Is this done by the regular engineer on their first visit?
There are CATV pavement covers and typically pavement Tees to which the coaxial cables are pulled through (in legacy HFC areas). The cable is usually in a conduit and shallow-buried. It's best to be in attendance when this is being done.
The installation may happen on one day, but the external cable pull team often complete their work some days beforehand. Unfortunately you do not get informed when the external team will come as they do not need access inside your property.

Interesting point on the chamber - I wonder how I get them to upgrade the chamber - I don't mind paying to get it done properly but I spent a frustrating 30 minutes with the pre-install team who didn't seem to understand my question.
