I received an email from Virgin Media offering me a free upgrade to a Hub 4, which I accepted.
I received an email and a text from Virgin Media confirming that it would be delivered today (31 Aug) and that I would receive an email and text from Yodel with a 2 hour time window.
I have taken a day off work to be at home today but have not received any delivery notification from Yodel. When I contacted Virgin Media I was told that the parcel was "in transit" and still due for delivery today but when I contact Yodel they tell me that they are still waiting to receive the parcel from Virgin Media and therefore it won't be delivered today! The agent I spoke to at Virgin Media was next to useless. She couldn't give me any information at all, couldn't transfer to anyone who could and didn't have a Manager that I could talk to to escalate!
Can someone from the Forum Team look into this for me please. I have taken a day off work for nothing and need to know when my Hub 4 will be delivered so that I can take another day off and be at home when it is delivered. I'm also worried as when I accepted the offer of a replacement Hub, it said my old Hub "will be automatically deactivated six days after the agreed install date for your new Hub 4". I can't allow this to happen and be without internet because my parcel has been mislaid.
Yodel and Virginmedia. About the worst combination of companies one can imagine.
It's possible to get the delivery diverted to a local pickup point, if only you could speak to them.
Quite honestly, you might just as well forget about the whole thing. Unless you intend to upgrade to the 1g service you will not find any advantage from the Hub4. And there are those who wish they hadn't changed.
