Due to rejoin VM. When I left previously I raised an issue with the cabling being just left across the side of my driveway. Somebody came along and basically cut the cable at the street duct and again at the wall box and left the cabling and trunking behind,
Do I need to flag this in advance of the install or can this be replaced at installation?
You should consider keeping your existing provider going until you have VM up and running again in your property to your satisfaction. The other forums, such as 'Quick Start', seem to be receiving new topics very regularly at the moment about long delays and chaotic work processes getting cables installed.
If there is any of the previous cable left accessible above ground, VM might fit a temporary junction box to reinstate the connection with a view to replacing the cable later.
