Replacement hub

On Monday 20/Feb/2017 I had an engineer (Maurice) visit to try to work out why my service  starts and stops intermittently (for the last 4 weeks, it's stopped for up to 5 days at a time). He couldn't work out what the problem was, but said it's a network problem, so passed the problem on to Virgins local network engineer.

He called and did further checks, and said it's NOT a network problem, but a dodgy modem/router which needs to be replaced. He phoned Maurice, who didn't answer (must've been in someone elses house) so he left a message to get a replacement hub for me (I'm on the v.1 hub currently).

That was 2 days ago, and bugger all has happened since.

So how do I get a replacement hub, or should I just sack Virgin and go with another service (I'm **bleep**-off enough at having no service for most of the last month, so I'm now comparing BT and Sky)

Re: Replacement hub

you can explain all that to retentions or take the easy route and tell them you have a SH1 and the wifi is dire [which it is] - they will sort a replacement out - that may have a cost [postage] - if so then go back to the beginning and go through the whole story - that just will take a bit longer to explain

dial 150 or 0345 454 1111 and follow the prompts to - you are thinking of leaving us - dont worry about that they do much more - open 'till 8pm - 6pm on saturdays - closed sunday and the plus is its a UK call centre

or you can wait here a week or so for VM to pick the thread up and i am sure they will organise a replacement

Re: Replacement hub

Hi TokSik,

 

Thanks for taking the time to post on the community.

 

I'm sorry to read of your experiences with the broadband connection.

 

I can see from your account, you called through to us to discuss this further. Also upon checking your connection the upstream power levels are too high at +54 dBmV. As this can cause an impact on your connection, I would like to arrange for an engineer appointment to check this over for you. I've sent you a PM (purple envelope icon, right corner) with some details for you to confirm please.

 

Hope to hear from you soon

Sam
