    I am doing some building work at home and want to move the location of my exisitng Virgin Media/ Telewest broadband connection. Can I use any type of digital coax cable from the Virgin Mobile junction box or is it a special type? Any help gratefully appreciated.

    Check the terms and conditions! A quick google showed this in condition 3 from Virgin:
    And welcome to CF!

    A further note - if you are going to ignore the conditions - the cable appears to be 75 ohm and is sole by Maplins among others.

    Hi Harry

    Thanks for your responses. I am not looking to move the installed juction box which is Virgin owned - only the internal cables.

    Your choice, but you can guarantee *if* you did encounter problems they would blame your extension.
