The new Hub 5.

Well? When will we all get offered one of these, complete with its 2.5Gb ethernet port? 

This is obviously the way to go when we already have 1.2Gb broadband in the top tier. 

What's its WiFi like?

Re: The new Hub 5.

Very interesting! Looks like an error in emailing customers and then the follow up, bounced them into this announcement.

 

Also, that 2.2Gb trial looks very serious. I wonder when that will be rolled out and will they give us a decent upstream with DOCSIS 3.1 up as well as down?

Re: The new Hub 5.

Well that shouldn’t happen with it being a VM site..   

Also roughbeast, I am also very intrigued on the matter.   Need to get in touch with CS now they have announced it

Re: The new Hub 5.

Hi Again Roughbeast.  
I have been on the phone to cs

they have suggested using the link www.virginmedia.com/offers/befirst. .   Ignore what it says but the site is basically for registering your interest in any new products virgin may have

Re: The new Hub 5.

Hi Buffer6,

That happens using Firefox with the malwarebytes extension enabled. 

The page loads properly for me when I turned off the extension (I didn't even know I had it lol) or if using Chrome or Edge browsers.

Greeny. Currently, they are only touting a new entertainment service, whatever that is. No Hub 5 mentioned.

Re: The new Hub 5.

Customer service have no idea what the Hub 5 is... just keep telling me about a deal that's very expensive compared to FTTP providers in my area and asking me what I think about it with smiley faces? Lol
