Could somebody advise if I can get a pre-installation engineer to visit to assess my flat for drilling etc.? During Covid-19.
I rent a flat and Virgin came to this area just recently,maybe 6-8 months ago.
I have BT Openreach socket with my current provider , but my question is - can they use the same wires or they have to change the whole thing? According to Virgin they own their own network..
Thanks in advance for your answers.

They have to install their own stuff.
Unless you are on the ground floor, I doubt it will happen during lockdown.

A coax cable goes from the property to the kerbside drop point (wee manhole cover marked CATV)
Then a cable comes into the property from the outside box, terminating in a surface mounted wallpoint.
Any internal cabling needed will be visible unless you hide it yourseld- one coax line to HUB, another to Tivo V6 if you want that, and a CAT5E cable between the two where possible.
