Installer Needed - no VM socket

I’m also having the same issue I recently received a virgin media starter kit and only have the virgin media Ethernet outlets.

VM does not fit ethernet sockets. Are you referring to a phone socket or something else?

Standard cut/paste reply to your query is ...

Have you checked to make sure there is no other kind of connection? Sometimes there is no wall box, just a trailing cable. The cable could be hidden within, or behind, furniture. Occasionally only a very short stub of wire is left behind often hidden within a blanked-off fitting. A couple of past examples are below

The wall box may be branded with the logos of an old cable TV company (not VM). Past occupiers of your property may have removed the cable and sometimes they are removed by other installers, such as satellite TV techs.

If you have a plastic omnibox outside on the wall (where the VM cable comes in from the street) see if you can trace any wires from that into your home.

If no luck, call the pre-installation and delivery team on 0800 052 1734 explain the problem and request a tech visit to install a socket.
