Does anyone know a freelance Virgin Media/NTL engineer?

We need to move our cable connection (broadband and TV) from one side of the room to another - about 16 feet worth of cable. Have ruled out one of those extension lead things from Argos as they're supposedly not up to the job.

Any help gratefully received - just don't want to pay Virgin a lot of money for doing it if I can help it.

Gavin is just the cable you want?

sort of Jan, but not an extension cable but someone who can move it properly (and to extend the cable and move the box on the wall) like an engineer because the box is on one side of the room and I want to move it to the other (it's a big room)!

I'd imagine any satellite or TV aerial engineer would be able to do that for you.

I can recommend Jamie - I used him for some Sky cabling work about 18 months ago.

Not connected in any way just a satisfied customer.

thanks Eileen, I have just spoken to Jamie and he was very helpful. I think I've probably sorted it!
