Damaged hub 3 need a replacement - how do I get a new one!!

My hub fell over and broke this week. I no longer have any wifi. I just need to order a new hub. How can I do this please. There is no obvious place to order one or speak to a human being to order one. Please help!

Re: Damaged hub 3 need a replacement - how do I get a new one!!

You can contact VM to report the problem using ...

Pre-installation & Delivery team on 08000 521 734

Activation number on 0800 953 9500 

Text service on 07533051809

150 from Virgin landline.

0345 454 1111 from any other UK  phone.

The best time to call is weekdays 08:00 to get a UK agent, anything after 10:00 you must realise that you are quite likely to get through to an offshore agent that doesn't speak English as a first language.

Or you can wait on here for one of the VM Staff to pick up the thread but this may take a few days.

Hello Jeanette63

Sorry to hear your hub fell over 

I can see that this has now been replaced 

How are things looking now?

Do you still need help at all

Hi Jeanette63

I can get this sorted for you 

I will need to send you a private message to pass security 
If you can check the purple envelope top right of your screen that would be great 
Regards

Re: Damaged hub 3 need a replacement - how do I get a new one!!

Hi Gareth

ive been in touch with the CS team about getting an upgrade to the new Hub 4 and I must admit I haven’t been impressed by how I have been treated. 

Working from home has become painful to the point that I’m offline for half an hour at a time and when connected I’m dropping off video calls constantly. I also am suffering from wifi issues in the back room of a 2 bed apartment which is not far from the router!

As a loyal customer I would really appreciate it if you could fast track me for the upgrade programme for the Hub4. 

thanks

roddy

The Hub4 is no better than the hub3. If anything it’s worse.
