Re: Self install kit cable short

Your issue is that it is specialised cable. VM only have it in short pre-made lengths which won't adversly affect signal levels. If longer cables are required this then needs a tech visit with the cables made up on site & adjustments can be made inside the street cabinet if levels need adjusting. There should be no callout charge if you ring up immediately & get something arranged.
