Re: Rollout of the HUB5

I’ve just got the email cancelling me order… I suspect it’s due to the useless Wi-Fi pod on my account that never worked. As the hub 4 I’ve had for about two years. Would have been nice to 2Gb Ethernet port to connect to my decent router.

Re: Rollout of the HUB5

It's because you have a Hub 4.

Most let you use your own its just they won't support it if something goes wrong. I currently have my Asus router setup with both Sky ultrafast and Virgin as the backup connection. out of contract with virgin so could leave at any stage will be once decent 5G speeds are available to me.

Exactly they are doing it all wrong you'd think they would supply the latest most powerful equipment to power users who have the Gigabit broadband rather than people who probably don't need it as they do simple things like go on Facebook or do their shopping online.

I am on 200 meg but play PC VR on my Meta Quest and it connects to the PC over WiFi and is Wifi 6 enabled so that is my use for the 5 over the 3
