Wrong Cable Installed

So I ordered virgin media 350 and weekend calls and on the website it says that they would provide my telephone services over your broadband connection. 5 days later kelly comms turned up and ran my hfc cable from the distribution cabinet about 25 metres down the road to my house but I read online that the telephone services over broadband would only work with FTTP. Have kelly comms installed the wrong cable ?

Re: Wrong Cable Installed

Initially VoIP phone was provided only over fibre but it's now done over coaxial cable as well.

Re: Wrong Cable Installed

Yes, it's known as siamese cable with coax bonded with copper.

afaik thats all they install - just standard cable - the telephone side of the cable will not be used if the phone is via the BB
