WiFi/Hub keeps dropping....arrgh!

Tuning in


Firstly this is more of a fed up, rant type post, so I apologize in advance.

I have  Voltz 1gb package with the latest Hub, but over the past week, the WiFi & Hub keep dropping out. I read something in the past about using the Virgin Connect app, but this is no good as it has to have a connection to the what's the point of being told to use an app that can't connect? Also when the WiFi is back on, the Connect app says it can't find my network, so what's going on?🤬

As said I'm supposed to have the 1gb connection, but lately I'm getting anything between 4gb & 30gb, which is way lower than I'm paying for, so how can I complain?

This has happened in the past but nowhere near as bad as now & I'm sick of having to keep resetting the hub & I'm also sick of having intermittent connections around my house, & sick of getting complaints off my kids about the connection dropping while they are online.

So can someone possibly tell me who in need to contact to possibly have the hub replaced & maybe get the WiFi boosters to help?




"As said"
this tone edges directly towards impolite use of the English language.

Hello Dash145H.

Just a quick message to see if you have been able to check the area for any faults?

How is the connection looking now?



The connection is continuing on a regular 3-4 times on a daily basis.

Think there's something seriously wrong with the Hub 5. Got mine sent out to me and would drop all the time. Actually had to revert back to the old Hub 3. With the amount of people complaining about it on this forum, it can't just be a coincidence. Had an engineer out who inspected everything and said the hub was fine when he tested it (as was the line into the house). 

And from the lack of replies back from the Virgin Moderators, there's nothing they can do about it.

Hey Dinger and thanks for getting in touch with us here on the forums.

I'm sorry to hear of the issues that you're experiencing with your connection, I can see that you have spoken to one of the team via a different thread has the help they offered resolved your issues at all?

Kind Regards,


Sorry, definitely not resolved
