Socket

Hi all,

I've ordered m100 broadband and was offered self install. Made a mistake assuming I had a virgin socket 😭 but feel there must be a connection if they offered self install, only seem to have bt ethernet connections in both rooms. Do I need an engineer? Cant seem to arrange one, my hub will be delivered on Saturday and cant be without Internet during lockdown! 

 

Any help is appreciated!

Are you sure you don't have a socket?

Do you have the brown box on the outside of your home?

Re: Socket

Thanks for the reply!

 

I have one that looks like the cable would fit but it looks like a very old connection box so not sure it would support the cable. I'm in a flat, will have to check for brown box outside.

 

Just assumed as I was eligible for self install I would be okay.

Would you mind posting an image of what you have?

We should be able to determine if it's ok, as generally VM wouldn't allow a self install if VM wasn't used previously!

I can't tell what the connections are so can't be sure, however as you say that box does a little old and past its day!

Is there any text on the big socket?
