Recently bought a house and there are virgin cables running all over it and 6 are in one of the gutters which is now blocked.
i want to remove the cables and rang virgin media on the 7th November to be told not to do it and expect a phone call within 7 days from the install team. i still havent had a phone call from virgin. so i rang again this morning to be told that i can cut them out myself, i expressed my knowledge that it will disturb other virgin customers broadband and phones and the operator said "just cut them out your self as this will create a fault and that will be attended to quicker, dont worry about it?
Re: Removing Cables from the house and on the house
Are these cables going into your own property or other peoples?
If these are only for your property they will link back to an Omni-box where the cable terminates coming in from the street.
Open the cover & all the cables will unscrew. Once these are disconnected you can do what you like with them. Ideally you should fit a terminator cap to each outlet you have disconnected.
Getting VM to come out when you are not a customer is extremely difficult. They also will not remove the incoming cable & Omni-box as once installed this is classed as a utility feed the same as your Gas, Electric & Water.
