QuickStart Eligibility

Hi,

I have recently moved into a new property where the landlord confirmed that previous tenants from a while back Virgin Media (not sure how long ago though).

The landlord pointed out the following outlet:

Could I confirm if this is a Virgin Media outlet and if I am eligible for QuickStart?

Thanks,

~Gioan

Re: QuickStart Eligibility

dont see why not, would star the order process and that should say self-install aka quickstart

Re: QuickStart Eligibility

Thanks heaps for the prompt response paultechy!

I was a little concerned as my outlet is significantly different from the one shown on

It just adds to me doubts that the existing port is virgin media compatible. I would like to avoid the scenario of installing a new line if possible as it would require permission from the landlord and all.

Re: QuickStart Eligibility

If it's a VM cable then you've got an isolator fitted. Best to get a better photo of it.

Re: QuickStart Eligibility

That's definitely VM but that silver box is a safety component that protects against ingress from mains electricity and as such, should really be in housing.
