Armoured Fibre Optic Cable

Hi all, I'm looking for some advice regarding the fitting of armoured coaxial cable for virgin media. Unfortunately I live in a dodgy area where the youths go round and cut the BT or Virgin cables outside your house for fun. My virgin Fibre cable comes is very close to my door and it disappears into a conduit in the ground. I'm wondering if I can replace the run that comes out of the ground and into my property with armoured coaxial cable to it is harder to cut through? I think I could convince Virgin to do the work but wanted to check it was possible first. Because the route the cable takes, it's not possible to put a conduit around it.

It should be covered to be a compliant install, usually with BT 101A cap.
It is terminated in a BT 101A but the cable is exposed from the ground conduit to the BT101A
It should have capping 25 and connector bend 4 from there to conduit.
