Thanks for the reply. For clarity:
There are 3 cables arriving at the omnibox from the street. In the photo of the omnibox the brown cable can be seen emerging from green conduit and disconnected from anything in the box.
There are two newer cables both black one is connected to the broadband and it's twin is not connected. The other cable is connected to the telephone wiring it's twin is not connected.
I do not currently have landline service.
I understand Virgin are switching to VoIP for landline service.
Does the landline wiring need to be retained?
Virgin is migrating to 21CV for phone services (new customers plus existing ones on a rolling programme). This uses the TEL sockets on Virgin’s router, while the backend systems basically remain the same with the calls still ending up at the local headend exchange. The service becomes fully VoIP in 2025 when Virgin & all other operators ditch the ageing PSTN network.
Therefore going forward only the coax cable will be needed for all Virgin services, except mobile of course.
