Hub 3 red light

Joining in

To cut a very long story short, I have been a customer for many years. 6 years in my current house. Broadband and house wifi was never a problem until Xmas time 2022. Several calls to the helpline and many months later we are still having issues. I told the technicians back in 2022 that the hub had a red light, we have done the pin reset several times yet still the hub has a red light constantly and feels hot to touch ( it is on an open shelf away from anything) but I have young children and this is a concern. I am tired of having to hotspot my TV’s to my phone as I am already paying for a broadband service. Please can someone help me? I’m hoping to get a better response from here than I have in the past from ringing up!

The red LED is the overheating warning and should be working correctly. If you wait here a day or two a VM Mod will discuss with you directly.
