Re: Superhub 2ac upgrade

Hi we have the superhub 2 and feel that we are missing out having the old hub we regularly have to restart the router and the WiFi signal is really poor at the back of the house we would like to find out how we go about getting the newer router or maybe a new router and WiFi extenders before we look at joining a totally different provider. Thanks very much

Re: Superhub 2ac upgrade

Be careful what you wish for. Many would say that the Hub3/4 is no better - indeed often worse than the SH2. I rejected a free upgrade a few years ago and my SH2 works perfectly well in modem mode with my own better quality equipment than that supplied in any ISP hub.

The only guaranteed way to get a Hub3/4 ATM (they are in short supply!) is to upgrade to the 350 (or greater) mbps package - which "requires" at least the Hub3. Whether that fixes any of your issues is another question altogether.  If you can convince them that the SH2ac is "broken" they are sending out refurbished SH2ac's to those customers as replacements just now as well.

Far better to get your own better quality equipment that will sort it and that you can use with the different provider too.

Re: Superhub 2ac upgrade

Hi @Matpas123,

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to the forums.

 

In cases such as the OPs, we generally do notify customers who are eligible for any upgrades, and this should be visible in the 'Offers' section of your My VM Account.

 

If this isn't available, then I'm afraid we are unable to carry out a simple swap via forums, however, I appreciate that you are experiencing issues with your current hub so would like to offer to carry out some checks and go from there to either get this fixed or the equipment replaced?

 

I'll send you a private message just to get some info from you, so please look out for the purple envelope at the top of the page.

 

Kind regards,

Re: Superhub 2ac upgrade

Hi @Matpas123,

 

Thanks a lot for getting back to me via private message.

I have run some checks on your equipment and currently, your downstream levels are out of spec and is indicating a fault.

This is something which I will be able to book an engineer visit for, who will look at either fixing the current hub or swapping it out if deemed necessary - there is no guarantee that it will be swapped with a hub 3 though.

 

As highlighted by John, the only guaranteed way to switch would be to speak with an agent about an upgrade.

The same goes for our wireless pods - should you continue to experience WiFi issues then an agent would be able to look at adding these to your package, or - like many other customers do - it may be a good option to shop around for some reasonable 3rd Party Extenders.

 

If you would like me to go ahead and book a visit to check over your current equipment, please confirm your full home address with me via private message and we can go from there.

 

Kind regards,

Molly_G
