Hello, sorry, I was not sure where to post this.
I have recently upgraded to a Hub 4 thinking it would help with the kids gaming consoles/PC disconnecting or lagging but it turns out that the Hub 3 works (slightly) better than the 4.
I also work from home for the NHS and occasionally get the odd disconnection which is not ideal.
I have been asked to return the Hub 3 but I am thinking of actually returning Hub 4 because there is no improvement. This is also despite having a virgin wifi pod.
I spoke to someone via Whatsapp and quite abruptly told me that they will send out another wifi pod as there is nothing else that can be done.
If someone here works for Virgin Media, please can you reply with some advice. Can I return the hub 4 and keep 3 or, can you send me out the new Hub 5? I am a relatively new customer. I was with Sky previously and I think I have had more issues with virgin broadband in the could of months that I have had it, than I did with Sky for the past 6 years
Welcome to the community forums.
Sorry to hear about your service concerns and that the Hub 4 did not work for you. Glad that the team was able to reconnect your Hub 3 as requested.
I would recommend sending the Hub 4 back to us rather than keeping hold of it as it will not work. You can order a pre-paid return package or print your own returns label here. Drop this off at your nearest collect plus point 9keep the receipt, it has your tracking number on it) and we'll collect from there.
How are your WiFi pods since your switched back to the Hub 3 ? Are they working as they should?
Thanks for your message.
Thank you, I'll look to get it returned as soon as possible.
To be honest, we're still having issue despite going back to the Hub 3 and having 2 WiFi pods ( I don't know if these are actually working)
I'm currently thinking of buying a 3rd party router
Sorry to hear the WIFI keeps dropping after switching back to the Hub3.
I have checked the Hub levels from here and its all looking fine.
The Pods are showing as working too.
Are any lights pulsating on the Pods.
Its rebranded Arriss router inside its not as good as the old netgear one virgin had (think it may have been 2 or 3)
