The easiest way to describe this fault is like a noise or crackle on your telephone line, in this case it's affecting the broadband signal and performance. There's a really good thread here that explains this in more detail.

On home phone really bad connection breaks up a lot. Hopeing a techy here can help . I use a ethernet cable to make sure of connection
After years of Virgin routers working perfectly I recently had a new SH3 installed and, yet again, I lose the connection every 30 mins or so. The biggest problem is that phones and iPads automatically swap to 4G without anyone noticing so we are using up our data allowance very quickly. I’ve read all the forums threads on this and tried the usual remedies but nothing works. Im in the London SE12 area. As I’ve not read about one person having this problem fixed I’m not sure what to do about this now. Come on Virgin Media - either fix the problem or give me back the old SH2 which worked fine.
I had this infuriating problem many months ago. Trying to work on my PC was just awful, I gave up many many times, I had the guy out who fixes my PC when needed, he said it was Virgin-my PC was working fine until the Superhub. I had the Virgin engineer out, no change, rang the help line many times, no change. My own personal opinion was that they are over subscribed. Backed up eventually by one of the engineers & some of the other subscribers to this board.
My advice to anyone is-go back to the Superhub 2 . Virgin took a long time to send me the 2, but eventually it arrived & all my problems I had for the previous 9-10 months--disappeared in an instant. Job Fixed.
Hi I can't help but suspect you're right about Virgin being oversubscribed. My neighbour got Virgin and it got worse and recently one of my other neighbours must have got it as another Virgin signal popped up and the drop out problem has deteriorated even further. Infuriating.
Hi I also have the same issue with my SH3. I've been with Virgin since Septemer as they were already at the premises i moved to. I figured i would keep everything easy.. However this does not seem to be the case and i'm beginning to get very frustrated with the router disconnecting from the internet and rebooting so far as i can tell. Can someone help to resolve this.
