Where's my Volt upgrade?

Tuning in

Virgin moved my mobile account to O2 in July. I have had O2 volt benefits for weeks. Where's my Virginmedia volt speed upgrade, currently on M125 with a superhub 2. I spoke to Virginmedia support and they said someone will contact me. Silence since.

Just got off a whatsapp session from support who were insistant that I could only have the upgrade if I started an 18 month contract which I find totally unacceptable.

Looks like progress.

today i received this email which starts

"You're receiving a new hub & speed boost

Good news! Because you have both Virgin Media broadband and an O2 mobile plan, you’re now eligible for exclusive Volt benefits."

Today received a hub5 as my existing hub2 is supposed to be not up to the job.

Using an improved router means I have to reconfigure all wifi clients as the hub5 demands a more complex password. Then because it is not possible to change the IP address on the hub5's internal interface I had to renumber my network. Instead of spending 2 minutes to configure a routers IP address to match what it was replacing I had to configure the IP address on 15 clients.

Hours later I am done. A speed test shows I am still on M125. When will the package change.
