We’re setting part of our powerful network free. So you can get online in places you never imagined – out and about and even underground. That includes all sorts of places near your home, on the tube, at the airport and around city centres.
Get ready for free WiFi access
In September, we’re enabling lots of Virgin Media Super Hubs (including the one in your home) to create new WiFi areas across the UK. As a Virgin Media customer, you’ll be able to access them all for free. With our clever service, you can automatically connect to smooth, speedy WiFi, wherever it’s available. That means you can crack on with tweeting, WhatsApping, Facebooking and more on the go, without eating up your mobile data allowance.
How does it work?
We’ll switch on a separate internet connection to your Super Hub, which will become part of the WiFi network. But don’t worry, the broadband you love and pay for will stay exclusively yours – and remain just as secure.
Do I need to do anything?
You don’t have to lift a finger because there’s no installation or faff. Just sit back and enjoy your broadband as you do now. We’ll let you know when it’s up and running so you can download your Virgin Media WiFi app and get connected.
If you’d rather not take part, no problem – just let us know. Simply register or sign in to your account at virginmedia.com/myvirginmediaand select My Profile. Bear in mind though, if you do opt out, you won’t be able to use Virgin Media WiFi when you’re out and about.
Has nobody got it yet...with every action there is a opposite and equal reaction getting a SH2ac will only delay the action for the reaction for VM to make the firmware worse. You want a action that any reaction is for the better use modem mode.
I talked to someone from virgin today to tell them of the problems im getting and was told that there is no issue with the latest firmware and no new firmware currently expected, i then said that its thats rubbish there are posts on the forums about it being an issue then he said maybe the "superiors know" but no information has been passed down to them as of yet.
There are lots of other people out there using virgin with no idea that their disconnects are due to virgin so are just carrying on thinking its their end
