    Virgin Media Telephone sockets

    I recently had Virgin Media installed and was surprised that the installation guy did not instal telephone sockets. Instead , there is a connector coming from the router that the phone plugs into.
    No master sockets or extensions .

    It is not connected to the telephone lines already in my house so I can only have it plugged in beside the router.

    Is this normal ? Have they stopped installing master sockets?

    The only reason I am bringing this up is we have noticed that our phone now does not ring when someone calls.
    The phone will light up when someone calls and I can answer and speak to the caller but it won't ring.

    Should the tech have installed a master socket and an extension ?

    I have Virgin, the router is in my son's bedroom, the master phone socket was fitted in the living room.
