That's a VERY strange message for anyone at VM to send out.

Yes I'm not denying you received it. It's just a very unusual message.

Re: HUB3....NO WIFI FOR A WEEK

Can you not put the Hub in modem mode and connect up your own wifi router ? Better long term solution as well !

Re: HUB3....NO WIFI FOR A WEEK

many thanks for advise,  but beyond my IT expertise,  I'll wait for VM to fix their side and think again if still faulty.
