Hey there, i`ll try to explain this from top to bottom so everyone can understand my situation.
By the end of September i got finally broadband in my home after waiting 1 month for the installation, i had issues with the network from day 1. I called like every 2 days to VM and all i got from them was "it`s an area fault, it will be fixed in the next couple of days, Just be patient". Same thing happened again and again and AGAIN !. After 1 month of stress and nerves somehow i managed to get an engineer appointment to come and have a look at the Hub, cause it keeps resetting. The engineer said "fixed" the issue, he said the signal was too low and hub couldn`t sustain a constant connection. Next day after the engineer solved the problem, hub keeps resetting.... AGAIN.The problem is my hub resets every 15-30 minutes by itself.
My question to Virgin Media is : is it worth calling again your Support line to fix my broadband properly or can i end the contract and find another provider ? Honestly i`m sick and tired of calling and receiving the same answer "it will be fixed until tomorrow".
I`ll post some screens here from the hub, in case someone from VM knows how to fix it.

So i had the engineer have a look at the broadband and he said "The fault is in the area, and fixed date will be 25 January 2017, and there is nothing he can do any more". Thank you VM for awesome suport !
Firstly I'd like to extend a welcome to our Forum, glad you've joined us.
Apologies for the connection issues but I'm confident we can get this resolved for you. I've tested your connection thoroughly and here is what I've found:
The fault referenced by the engineer is not correct. That relates to a peak-time congestion issue which affects a different CMTS, your's is not impacted.
However fault ref: F004859919 is affecting you. This is for faults on the upstream segment - low SNR and/or FEC's (signal to noise ratio & forward error corrections) that recur intermittently. This is under investigation by our Network technicians and has a current estimated fix date for 22/11/2016.
The latter fault will result in connectivity issues though I doubt it's severe enough to cause your Hub to reset. Would you do me a favour please:
Browse to your Hub's Interface pages (192.168.0.1)
Don't log in, instead click on Router Status
Under the Network Log tab you'll find the fault data relating to your Hub* - please copy this and paste on here.
I'd like to know if the errors your Hub reports have an correlation to the network errors I am seeing.
If not I'd like you to ensure that your Hub is using the power supply that was provided and that it is not plugged into an extension socket. If that doesn't help we may need to send you a replacement Hub so keep us updated
*Alternatively you can log in to the Hub > Advanced Settings > Tools > Network Log.
Thanks for keeping us in the loop with regards to your broadband dropping connection to the network, I apologise for any troubles, I promise to do my very best in order to help get this resolved for you.
I have run some tests from my side, I can see that your Hubs logs show a lot of T3 time outs across the upstream channels, this will require one of our engineers to attend and investigate things further.
I will send you a PM (Purple envelope at the top) detailing what's required to proceed with making the booking. Please respond to me there and I'll get this sorted for you.
