Are the reported hotspots only for the use of  virgin mobile customers?

Re: Wifi hot spots

The other WiFi scheme which is in trial currently is open to Virgin Media customers who have the broadband package and are opted into the WiFi sharing, not just mobile customers.

Re: Wifi hot spots

Yes, I understand that part, but is it ONLY for people with virgin mobile, as vm want me to use my super hub as a hot spot, is it not, therefore , fair that I can use the hot spots when out and about.
I don,t need a phone contract, I am a low user and use FreedomPop , free calls and texts.

Regarding the WiFi scheme Virgin Media aim to launch in the near future (like BT FON): Firmware updates are required to get the hubs to broadcast the WiFi hotspots. Currently only the Superhub 2 has trial firmware for it. Last time around it was tested, it had too many bugs and was pulled. However, the hub 2 once again has trial firmware in the selected trial area (Reading.) They'll be testing its effects and uptake in the trial area of the WiFi scheme. If all goes well, it will roll out nation wide and eventually all Superhubs will have new firmware which supports the WiFi sharing. So you should see MANY Virgin Media hotspots about the UK in the not too distant future.

Re: Wifi hot spots

As far as I know it is only for virgin mobile customers. I have opted out for my hub to be used in my profile settings but it still is broadcasting as a public hotspot which is very annoying.
