Have to keep restarting Hub3

Tuning in

I've only been using Virgin for about 3 weeks now, after a week I had to restart the hub when speeds dropped to about 2Mbps, but I've now had to restart it 3 days running.

Is this sort of thing a common teething issue, or is there a genuine problem already?

Hi @Johnnyboy123 

Welcome to the community forums. 

Sorry to hear you're having service issues. I have checked the systems at our side and can see that there is an area issue affecting you at this time. 

You might find that your Virgin Fibre, Voice and Virgin TV services are intermittent, with the picture freezing or disappearing now and then. We are sorry and our engineers are working hard to resolve this for you.

The current estimated fix time is 9th May 2023 9am. I can assure you, our engineers are working to have this resolved as soon as possible.

Hi Carley

Speeds are still variable and not as good as they were originally, can you give me an update on the area issue that you mentioned please.


Try the automated fault reporting number 0800 561 0061 this can be the best source of local info.

Hi @Johnnyboy123 

Thanks for coming back to us.

The area issue has been resolved 🙂

No issues are showing when we've ran a system check, I do hope this means everything is sorted, however, do pop back if you ever need anything.

Best wishes.

After a couple of days of OK speeds, they've dropped right down again; can you check that the issue has really been resolved please?
