Default NTL installation

Hello every one, looking to have NTL broadband put in, just moved house
& always used cable, don't want/don't need a phone line!

In the new house there is an NTL white box, with a TV/FM splitter in.
Do they use this box or will they have to install another one? Caus
there's no chance of that at the moment, its a top floor flat so they
can't run another cable up here without alot of hard work!

Could they use the existing cable and replace the TV/FM splitter?

Many thanks!!!

Simple, quick answer yes (AIR they don't need to change the splitter)

EXCELLENT, though bulldog and BE did sound tempting, the 40odd price
tag didn't!

And your positive about this.... I've used NTL for the past 3 years and
never even thought to look at the boxes they used, never had a new
install, they always used existing boxes so i was quietly confident
lol!

I'm tempted to say "simple, quick answer, no".

The cabling to our property brings "coax" and phone to a junction point
outside. This was wired to a uhf/vhf splitter indoors. When we had
broadband installed, they ran new wiring from the *outdoor* junction
point. OTOH maybe that was just because of the geography of the
installation, and not a fundamental need.
