We're rearranging our living room and I need to get a longer coax cable, is this something I can get from virgin or do I need to order up one from another source?

Thanks for the quick reply.
Are you sure about that? I need to get an engineer to come out to replace the cable the coax cable that runs from the wall to the box? That seems like a bit of a scam.

Using non-VM supplied cable has the potential of introducing noise into the network that would not only affect your connection, but all customers on the same street cabinet.

It isn't just replacing the cable that needs to be considered. The power levels may require adjusting due to the cable length change.
If you don't want to pay £99 may I suggest you run an ethernet cable from the HUB to where your other equipment is currently situated.
