Good Afternoon @SarahTriv, thanks for your post on our Community Forums, and a very warm welcome to you!

Sorry to hear of the issues you've been experiencing on the connection, and the ringing of the landline phone when the service drops.

I've looked into the local area and cannot see any issues that may be the cause of this fault.

How have the services performed since your post? 

Kindest regards,


Hi David, 

Thankyou for message  - home phone still gives 3 x rings when Internet drops out, not sure why ?

Signal ok !!




Thank you for popping back to us @SarahTriv 


Can I ask if you have tried a full factory reset on your Hub since noticing this issue? To do this push a pen etc into the reset hole at the back of the Hub and hold in for 60 seconds? 


Thank you.
