Hub 4 flashing red light at midnight

Joining in

Using Hub 4 on the 1GB package. We had a new cable pull done about a week ago to improve the signal strength to our Hub to make it more 1GB ready. Since that point we've had a couple of outages that have lasted a few hours, but on both occasions it's started just after midnight. The light on the Hub 4 flashes red but according to Google that's an issue with the telephone line. We're just broadband customers

Update: The Hub is also making a humming / buzzing noise. Not very loud, the kind you only here in a quiet room, but I've never heard a Virgin hub making a noise before. Decided to just turn it off until the morning

Don’t believe everything you read on Google. A flashing red LED signifies no broadband connection. The noise is probably the fan in the hub, this is ok unless it get very loud. 

Check with Area faults on 0800 561 0061 If you have a VM landline 150 this goes down to post code level. You could also try the web page status, but this is not recommended as it only covers issues that affect a very large number of customers.

VM will not dispatch any technicians while an area fault exists.

If no area faults found:

The primary place to report faults or for service requests is Customer Services on 0345 454 1111/150 if you have a VM landline or wait two or three days for a VM staff member to get to your post.
