1gb hub 4

I’ve had 1gb installed today with a hub4.  Haven’t clocked over 400 while stood next to the router yet and getting an average of 20-30 in upstairs bedroom.  Engineer said there was a known problem in the area, but the website says that’s not the case.  What’s the easiest way to speak to someone about this?  I don’t have a virgin phone line, so can’t call 150

Re: 1gb hub 4

You can call on 0345 454 1111 (national rate) or try the "known fault" line on... 0800 561 0061

But have you tried testing on an ethernet cable connected computer or laptop? - as that is what VM guarantee - not wifi speeds

Depending on the environment when talking about wireless yes, it is certainly possible.

None of your devices may be even capable of those speeds, and even then the HUB 4/3  are only WiFi-5, which isn't capable of 1Gbps.

Re: 1gb hub 4

Just off the phone from the helpline.  The router is receiving an average of 1100, but my laptop is receiving 550 on ethernet and less than 100 on wifi while right next to the router.

Re: 1gb hub 4

Hi taycar1011, 

Thanks for your post and welcome to the forums. It's great having you on board with us in the Community. 

We're sorry to hear you're not getting the speeds you were hoping for. 

If we've run through checks and can confirm the Hub is receiving the correct speed then the issue will be the speed coming from the Hub to your equipment. 

With WiFi, it's all to do with environment. These links will help to optimise things for you:

I can also see that you've spoken to the team and they are sending a WiFi pod out to help improve things.

In terms of the ethernet connection, I'm not seeing a device connected to the Hub via ethernet. They are all through WiFi. There is also a fault open and affecting your area currently. The details of this are here:

  • Fault reference number: F009521799
  • Estimated fix time: 22 DEC 2021 12:00
  • Description: Status report || 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. 

I have made a note of this on your account so the relevant teams are aware you are affected. 
If there is anything else we can do, let us know. 
Thanks,

Kath_F

Re: 1gb hub 4

Thanks for the info.  The Ethernet speed was clocked when I temporarily connected my laptop by Ethernet at the request of your helpline staff member and ran a test at least 20 times.

Re: 1gb hub 4

Also, up until 5 minutes ago there has been 3 Ethernet cables plugged into the router connecting a tv, firestick and sky q box.  So i’m confused why you would say there was no Ethernet devices connected?
