Renewed contract but not offered new router? Still have old superhub2 (not ac)
I recently renewed my VM contract for at least another 18 months. I have 100mb broadband. I wasn't offered the superhub3 router and I'm stuck with my old and annoying superhub2 (not the better superhub2 ac).
Can a staff member contact me to arrange sorting out an updated router? I've tried contacting on Twitter, but not had a response.
I don't use landline, and hold times are stupid on standard numbers.
(I know the pros and cons of updating to the superhub3 as there any many forum posts). Thank you

100Mb broadband and below doesn't need a new hub for the speeds to run, which is why you weren't offered one. If you had been going for Vivid 150 or Vivid 200 you would have gotten a new hub.
To get the hub 3 you'll have to contact customer services and clear DPA, the kit upgrade will recontract you and will come with a £14.95 kit activation fee (self-install basis.) It's not something the staff here can arrange for you, because of DPA and they only deal with replacements if there is a fault with the current kit the customer has (not kit upgrades.) Ring 150 from a VM phone or 0345 454 1111 from any phone, choose option 1, confirm your details when prompted for them. Once in the menu system choose option 4 -> Option 5. Make that call between 8AM to 8PM M-F and 8AM to 6PM Sa, closed Su.
