I recently upgraded to the 350mb package on 22nd March, I received an email shortly after saying i would receive a welcome email with terms of my contract and speeds etc, i still haven't received that email neither has my broadband speed upgraded.
It it likely this is an issue related to the lack of staff because of Coronavirus or is this process automated and has something gone wrong?
Have you rebooted the Hub and then checked in the settings to see if the Configuration file has been updated with the new "max data transfer rate" speeds?

I do not work for VM. My services: HD TV on VIP (+ Sky Sports & Movies & BT sport), x3 V6 boxes (1 wired 2 WiFi,) SH2 in modem mode with Airport Extreme Router +2 Airport Express's. On VIVID200, Talk Anytime Phone, x2 Mobile SIM only iPhones.
Hello thank you for your responses, i have been resetting the Hub daily, how do i find my Max data transfer rate? I have my Hub settings up and all i can find is max traffic rate which is 117000047 is this the right thing?
How was the order placed? Was it online or over the phone to an agent? If the order was placed online, it may take some time for our teams to process this due to reduced staff and increased contact volumes.
I'd recommend logging into your online Virgin Media account where you'll find all your package and contract information.
If no changes are showing and you cannot see your new speed stated there, give me a shout and I'll look into your account for you via PM.
What modem/router do you have? Is it a Superhub 2? If so, they will need to send you a Superhub 3 (or whatever the new one is called) and something goes wrong with the ordering process. I recently went through the whole thing and your story sounds awfully familiar:
The solution was to use the live chat. Try it in office hours. You get to it by going to your account, choosing broadband upgrade, and looking for a live chat button popping out of the right side of the browser.
A bot will ask you stupid questions. Tell it you want a broadband upgrade and if it asks you to call instead, keep saying no. Eventually it will connect you to a human you can type messages to.
The order was originally placed on a call with your retentions team as my contract term was up. We switched from a bundle deal to broadband only and in the process upped my speed from 100 to 350. This was on April 14, I received the contract information and my online account aligns with this information.
On April 20th I had a second call from virgin retentions team trying to offer a better bundle ect, spoke to them about the upgrade and was passed to customer services who advised the person I'd spoken to o before had not fully completed the order (although I had contracts ect). They advised this was now done and the upgrade would happen the following day.
I've rebooted and checked the router today and it's still showing as 117000047.
