Relocating Virgin Media Cable / Brown Omnibox

When I had Virgin Media installed, they ran the cable down the edge of a flowerbed. I am now in the process of having a new driveway laid, including over the flowerbed section.

Will I need to arrange a non-fault engineer callout for them to move the cable to the property boundary? At the moment there is no protection around the cable.

Hi @markaylward

 

We will need to book something in for you - there would be a £99 charge for us to move this cable across if you are getting the front re-done. If you'd like me to arrange this let me know 🙂 

 

Thanks, 

Hollie - Forum Team

From the pic it looks like some kind of temporary job, which would need redoing properly at some point anyway.

(I'm sorry if that's a normal install after all)

Hey markaylward,

 

Have you been able to arrange for this to be resolved, since you last posted?

 

Don't worry, if you haven't, I can help you out from here via a private message.

Re: Relocating Virgin Media Cable / Brown Omnibox

It may not be that simple as pavement Tees are not designed to be repeatedly driven over. If a relocation is required to enable a driveway to be built it is unlikely to be done as it is not necessary (not a health or safety matter), and if done would cost a lot more than £99.
