BE broadband cant run on a VM cable phone line no broadband canBut it can if the new house can only get VM ADSL.
OP was uncertain whether this was the right forum. He needs to be sure if the new property is getting VM Cable or VM ADSL.
The new house I'm moving into will have PO phone with BE broadband so that's not a problem.
In streets where VM has not cabled you can get VM National ADSL: http://www.virgin.net/allyours/broadband/ where you can get BB alone. So they must supply it over your existing BTw phone line.
So it all depends on what phone line OP's housemates have ordered and whether it is a BTw line.
They are going for either the classic or essential collection (broadband, tv and phone) So do VM:-
1. use a BTw line, so I might be able to move the BE connection after VM is installed
2. LLU the line, so I need to move the BE connection before VM is installed
3. or does the phone come through the cable with the tv, so we end up with 2 phone lines in the house until the PO one is canceled?
Hope that explains the problem a bit better.
Thanks for your help.
