I've recently moved in to a new-build house, and by law all new-build houses now have to have FTTP cables installed for both BT and Virgin Media. Trouble is, the actual indoor equipment (and neat box on the outside wall) are only installed when you actually opt to purchase BT or VM's service. Until then, you have a cable going into the house with an ugly drawstring; here's a photo of what the front of my house looks like currently:
I've gone with BT; however there are various neighbours that have clearly gone with Virgin Media and the Virgin installation has put a much tidier box on the wall; here's the front of my neighbour's house:
Is there a way I can get Virgin Media to tidy this up on my house? I don't want to go with them, but I don't want this ugly draw string to be sitting around at the front of the house either.
If the worst comes to the worst, could I sign up for their services (to get the neat and tidy box installed) and use the 14 day cooling off period to cancel the service?
