Redundant cable?

I have two cables running from the kerb to my house, one looks redundant and is in the way of some planned renovations. How can I be sure that it is redundant and can I remove it?

Re: Redundant cable?

If it's not attached to anything at the outside wall then it's redundant. Virgin are unlikely to come out to remove coax, it's worthless.

Re: Redundant cable?

Hi JuliaTownsend

Thanks for posting and for getting in touch.

I can see the community have responded and yes, if the cable is not connected to anything then there is no signal going through this so shortening this should not be an issue.

That's based on the assumption it is definitely one of ours of course.

I hope this helps

Re: Redundant cable?

Thank you Kaz but I’m not confident the cable is redundant.

i have two sets of cable coming from the kerb to my house, one obviously connected to the brown connection box on my exterior wall and one looks like it’s leading into the connection box but cannot be sure.

does it require an engineer visit and if so how can I request one easily?

Re: Redundant cable?

You should be able to pop the front open on the box on your wall.
