Omni box

Hello my omni box lid hasn't been on for over a year and there's a cable going over my fence then over next doors house to their neighbours. I wanted to know if that box serves multiple houses or just mine and if they're stealing my internet or not. They've been coming up my path and couching down near the box and it's by my front door. I'd prefer it so they didn't have to come onto my property and if Virgin would in future let us know that they where installing the over hanging cables. Thank you in advance

Re: Omni box

they are not steeling your internet. Normally this would be a temp fix until VM can run a cable for the neighbours.

It doesn't;t matter if its connected to your box all internet shares the same cable anyway

Re: Omni box

Ok thanks for that, the quick fix has been like that for over 12 months, the cable is at head height between mine and next doors property were our bins are kept. The neighbour keeps coming up onto our property, so should I just call for an engineer to sort the cabling out and put a cover on the panel so they don't have to come onto my property anymore ?

Re: Omni box

you should report it and get it fixed. you may want to let the neighbour know so they can cwell as well. They will need a cable repull to keep services after its removed
