Re: Hub seeding team

Sounds like offshore gobbledegook, but why have you requested a Hub4 if you are not going on to the 1GB package. The Hub4 is no better - and many say its worse - than the Hub3.

Getting new equipment carries the opportunity for VM to start you on a new 18 month contract - did you discuss that with them?

Re: Hub seeding team

Oh excellent; the 'Hub Seeding Team'; is it OK to add this to the forthcoming edition to my book 'BS excuses and Outright LIES by Virgin Media offshore Customer Support' (I may have to rethink the title)!

Available from all good booksellers (and quite a few not so good ones) 😃

Re: Hub seeding team

I see, you plant them, and hope they grow into a working hub6!

This explains the recent shortage of new hubs. The seeds must be taking longer than expected to germinate!

Re: Hub seeding team

TBF..... if you worked in the VM Marketing Department and given the task of deciding who the lucky winners of the Hub5 lottery were to be.... then.... "Hub Seeding Team" is something you would be most likely to dream up for your office door.

Re: Hub seeding team

It's a reference to the recent activity where some customers were contacted and offered a Hub 4 in order to help manage the network by moving those customers onto the D3.1 network.

The Hub 4s were therefore 'seeded' into more homes.

You can't currently request a Hub 4 unless it's part of a Gig1 upgrade. Any Hub 4 for other tiers of service are invite only (as is the Hub 5)

Only customers with older SuperHubs can currently request a Hub upgrade without a change of service, and that'll be to a Hub 3 via the link in the Connect app.

Re: Hub seeding team

Thanks for all replays. It turns out the seeding team are the ones that have to get the hub set up on lower speed internet service. As for entering into a new contract because of the new hub no they haven't extended my contract and yes I have got the hub 4 coming Monday 10th.

I never received any invite email to upgrade the hub I just got in contact via online chat and requested the new hub 4
