Humph, why are they giving it to S and M first? I thought seeing as L and XLs are paying more they should be given priority... unless, of course, they're not overly confident with the update
I'm guessing it's not possible to manually upgrade and we've all got to wait patiently for the push.
Still V5.5.2R30 for me too. I am in Modem Mode though, would this make a difference?
I am sat waiting for a Virgin tech guy to turn up
we only have a 10mb package with the old D-link wireless and the 256 router .Its a bit old now and last few days i lost the internet
now..... they want to give me the new "HUB" , having done a search, it looks like the hub was made by the devil himself !
no gaming etc , just a cable connection to my mac and 2 x wireless connections for our "7's
Is the Hub That bad ? They are also looking into when i will get the better speed package
The thing is that only the bad experiences with the SuperHub tend to be posted. I've not had any issues with mine and can live with only getting half the 30MB speed via wireless. Ultimately, I would go ahead and get the SuperHub if they are giving you it for free, sooner or later you would need it anyway for anything over 20MB which is the limit of the old modems.
Latest update is that R36 has been rolled out to everyone and 10MB and 30MB users will get it by the end of the week via a reboot.
R36 Super Hub Firmware - Help & Support Forum
I'm still on R30 here and quite happy to stay on it since I've not had any probs. Am more annoyed about the supposed doubling of speeds that was pencilled in for July and has now been pushed back to December 2012
Your speed upgrade is going to take a little longer
Mod Edit: edited to conform to forum rules the whole doubling of speeds coincided at exactly the same time when BT was launching their own Infinity fibre optic network.
The Virgin plan was get as many people to sign up to a 12+ month contract and lock them in with a promise that their broadband speeds will be doubled in the next few months. Once you have enough mugs, shove the start dates back to sometime next year because the punters won't be going anywhere.
