FAO: VM Boss - Give us the gamers package without the Hub 3.0 pls

Hello,

I think the boss man @ VM should be allowing us to upgrade to the gamers package without having to use the Hub 3.0.

[MOD EDIT: Inappropriate content removed, please review the Forum Guidelines]

 

Cheers,

MOA.

 


May the force be with you,

I am against this petition, the sh3 can bond more than 8 downstream channels which is important in getting the higher speeds

You're against the choice of allowing users to pick a hub?

Also, there's no game out there that I know that need anywhere near 200Mbit, where as ping and line quality is important on nearly all of them?

I think we should have a choice.

The hub 3.0 has had continous issues with the puma chip and this is a global issue with the chipset.

The 2ac is more than capable of running the service.

Fantastic response from VM. Ask them about a service on FB and rather than a member of staff giving you an answer they tell you to ask their customers on the forum. This seems to be a lot of hassle just to upgrade!

I have a hub2, base hub2, not even the AC and i have the 200 gamer, works perfectly fine, the hub 3 is NOT required for this service to work at all, i upgraded, connected the hub3, realised how much of a complete and utter liability the device was, it wouldn't even connect properly and it was trying to MITM my connection to spam "troubleshooting" windows over my intended browsing target so i rang VM up and told the rep to put my SH2 back on to my account in place of the SH3, bear in mind this was within about 2 hours of having activated the hub 3 so YMMV, if you no longer have your hub 2 you're pretty much SoL
