I been with virgin media for around 6 years and still have a HUB2, i have seen post about upgrading to a HUB3 online via virgin connect app, i have tried this and nothing is working, a virgin media page opens saying 'oops something went wrong' i have logged into me virgin media account and looked to see what upgrades are available and the same page opens.
is this upgrade still available? and is there a way of getting this upgrade online without having to call virgin media?
If the free upgrade link doesnt work and you get "oopsed" (I always do too!) it means you on an odd or old package that the system hasn't been coded for to recognise - so you have to call in to discuss it.
Cheers for joining our Community and thanks so much for your first ever post. Is there any particular reason you're looking to take out a new Hub at the moment? Are you experiencing any issues with your broadband currently?
Customers will be contacted directly when it is time to upgrade their equipment free of charge; we have recently contacted a few thousand customers who are on our older models in order to upgrade.
I've located your account from your forum information to take a closer look for you - all seems to be looking great - apart from the fact our system advises that your Hub has not been rebooted in 123 days! For a hub with that much uptime, you have very little errors showing; all signal levels seem to be well within the points we'd expect. I'm not able to see any issues from this end.
the reason i am looking to upgrade my hub is because my wife is working from home and her laptop looses connection to the internet quite often, her IT team saying that her laptop is running fine and it our internet, i have moved the hub to a location where it will work its best, i.e not in a tv unit and or not in a corner of a room, but she is still having trouble so i have put it down it possibly being the hub.
i am also requesting a new hub because Virgin media has put the offer out to anyone that has an hub2 or older for a free upgrade.
when connecting to the hub via WiFi on a mobile phone ect, a list of possible connection appear in our proximity mine being virgin i have two connection to choose from G2 and G5. should i have more to choose from or is 2 connection correct?
When customers call through to our faults department, or come through to our team on the Community Forums, we are encouraged to reboot or request a reboot/reset of the hub if this has an uptime of over 10 days, to see if this can resolve a fault for a customer.
This may not fix the issue, but it is an important part of the diagnostic process we need to go with, with the customer.
@PFC111, if you're able to shed further light on this, by answering the questions from @jbrennand that would be appreciated
