We’ve upgraded your home Wi-Fi.......But to what? How do I benefit?


Just had this email from Virgin Media. First impressions was good - Yipee - getting a free upgrade to, say 350. But no. This is VM after all.

So, can someone explain to me what I should be pleased about? Seriously, I don’t understand what there is to shout about. I’ve been a full NTL/VM customer for 21 years and always had a good internet experience throughout. Happy with Hub 3. Have about 8 or so devices connected.

Perhaps I have just been lucky. 

We’ve upgraded
your home WiFi.
Hello Xxxx

We’ve been busy upgrading our Intelligent WiFi tech to give you our most reliable WiFi experience with your Hub 3.

The good news is this new-and-improved WiFi is now live in your home, at no extra cost.
Here’s what it means to you:
WiFi you can really rely on
We’ve built on the original Intelligent WiFi tech to make sure your gadgets are on the right frequency they need to do their thing. The new update looks at your WiFi use over the past few days at different times of the day to make sure everything’s in tip-top shape. This means a faster and even more reliable WiFi connection, especially if your devices move around a lot.
And here’s what’s coming soon:
Keep more devices whizzing around faster
With so many devices gobbling up your WiFi at the moment, things can get a little busy. Our latest update helps your data-hungry gadgets dodge WiFi traffic to keep things moving along and prevent those pesky WiFi drops.
Enjoy!
The Virgin Media team

I also got the same email, telling me my SH3 has better WIFI. Trouble is i dont have an SH3, i have an SH4.

And my WIFI is way better than anything offered from VM, as i am in Modem Mode with my own router.

Red (VM SH2 AC Beta tester)
Running on 1Gbps VM service with SH4 in Modem Mode, with a ASUS RT-AC5300 router. With this setup I get Fantastic WIRED and WIRELESS Signals in my home. I dont work for VM. But I work in IT, and I know my tech.
My advice is at your own risk. If you are happy with my answers please press Kudo ?
