Do I need a HUB 4 for M500?

Yesterday I upgraded BB from M350 to M500 for free using VM's Livechat service, the problem is, the customer service rep thinks I have the Hub 5, because I recently activated then deactivated my Hub 5 reverting back to the Hub 3 due to telephone issues. I explained all of this to him, but all he did was confirm the upgrade saying it'll be live in 24hrs and then referred me to a chat bot to sort out my telephone issues, never heard from him again.

I assume I am on the M500 package now but I haven't noticed a difference when doing a speed test on Ookla.com. Is the Hub 3 even capable of 500mbps? should I be getting a Hub 4? or should I just wait until the telephone issues are resolved on the Hub 5 and then have it reinstalled and activated?

Re: Do I need a HUB 4 for M500?

The Hub 3 is capable yes, but because of the obvious mismatch between what VM's offshore customer services think and reality, it's quite possible that the upgrade was targeted at the, now disconnected Hub 5 rather than the 3 - basically it may not have gone through at all.

If you log into the Hub 3, one of the status tab windows does display what speed the hub has been provisioned for.

Second table

Max Traffic Rate : 402500089

As I suspected, you're still on the 350 Mb/s tier.

Can someone on here switch it over to my Hub 3, or do I need to go through customer services again?

Best to call in if you are in a hurry, otherwise it's usually one or two days for a VM Mod to pick this up.
