Hi ViperSP, 

Thanks for your post and questions regarding the new Hub 5. 

It's worth noting that the Hub 5 is not ipv6. It offers WiFi6 which is something different. This is the latest generation of WiFi technology and takes advantage of dual band reach for guaranteed speed, coverage and reliability and less WiFi lag.

The hub is currently only available to those customers upgrading to the 1GB service due to stock levels. 

If you would like to upgrade then please speak to the team on 150 / 0345 454 1111 so they can go through your options with you. 

Let us know how you get on.

i already have gig fiber ive had it for just under 8 months 🙂

VM as a whole, simply do not support IPv6 in any way - currently. It has been promised as 'being worked on' etc. but that's been the case for about a decade.

VM do have ipv6 on the line but it functions as a tunnel to ipv4.

i was curious to know if it was fully implemented yet with the hub 5 as the rumors were circulating it fully supported ipv6 when it was new back in January/February 2022.

since i have gig fiber already will i be able to get the hub 5 please?
