Is this a new installation or/on a quick start pack?  If so Call the Pre-installation and delivery team on 0800 052 1734 and tell them you need a Tech install

The longest VM cable they supply off the shelf is a 3m one.  Is that long enough for you?  If so I would call that number and ask for one.  If not you will need a Tech visit who will custom make one for you of the required length.  They usually charge £25 for that - but they may waive that if its a new install or a quickstart pack - worth asking.

Dont be tempted by cables from Amazon - they are all cheap tat (despite what they claim) and will cause you all sorts of issues (I know this from personal experience!) 😎


I do not work for VM. My services: HD TV on VIP (+ Sky Sports & Movies & BT sport), x3 V6 boxes (1 wired, 2 on WiFi) Hub5 in modem mode with Apple Airport Extreme Router +2 Airport Express's & TP-Link Archer C64 WAP. On Volt 350Mbps, Talk Anytime Phone, x2 Mobile SIM only iPhones.

We're sorry to hear the cable isn't long enough for you.
