I have a Superhub 2 dating from when I joined Virgin Media in 2013. The connection is now intermittent, and it goes offline if you nudge the cable going into the back of the hub from the wall box.
I can see on the website that all Superhub 2 owners are eligible for a free hub upgrade, but speaking to the support team they said as there is an issue in the area (due to last 3 days, apparently) they can’t consequently can’t dispatch a new modem. The VM Service Status page shows no issues.
Any ideas on getting a new hub sent out before this one packs up entirely?!
Best place to check for issues is the “free & automated” Service Status number - 0800 561 0061 - which usually gives the most up to date info. and tells you of more local issues down to postcode level.
That said, just call it in as faulty and arrange for a Tech visit to fix their faulty equipment. Tech will replace it if necessary. Be aware that there is a Hub supply issue at the moment due to the current economic/technological issues around the world. this means they are not doing "free upgrades" at the moment - it has to be broken.
