Just got the email about the free wi-fi access for anyone by people using our superhub Can someone confirm if we 'Opt Out' does this mean that our Superhub definately won't be used for the free access ?
If you’d rather not take part, no problem – just let us know. Simply register or sign in to your account at virginmedia.com/myvirginmedia and 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.
That's correct. If you opt-out, you're Super Hub won't be used.
Of course, this means that you won't be able to make use of the Virgin Media Wi-Fi hotspots when out and about.
If I'm a "modem-mode" user, and haven't actually opted-out, can I still use Virgin Media Wi-Fi hotspots when out and about?
You are still opted-out.
Its possible VM could allow you to use Virgin Media Wi-Fi hotspots if you pay extra and be opted-out but its possible for another mode with Wi-Fi hotspots and modem mode can be done so you have three modes router mode, modem mode and Wi-Fi hotspots and modem mode doubtful VM will do this.
Really I don't see whats wrong with using 3G or 4G as a backup or hotspot the wireless in the super hubs are not that great.
