Free Virgin Media Hub 5 (with WiFi 6) Upgrade for Existing Customers (via invitation) @ Virgin Media

Posted 21st Oct 2021
A nice offering for those already on Virgin Media. The new Hub 5, with WiFi 6 has currently started its rollout to select customers before a wider launch next year.

Current invites seem to be focused on customers with the older Hub 3.

Jeff Dodds, Chief Operating Officer at Virgin Media O2, said: “We are excited to give our existing customers first access to the Hub 5, powered by WiFi 6 technology, which will provide even faster WiFi speeds and help unleash the full potential of new devices from next-gen games consoles to the newest smartphones in their homes.”

“As part of a phased roll-out, Virgin Media will offer the Hub 5 to existing customers first at no extra cost. Eligible customers will be contacted and given the option of upgrading ahead of a wider launch in 2022.”

The Hub 5 adds Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), WPA3 encryption, 1 x 2.5Gbps LAN port and 3 x 1Gbps LAN ports. On the back you’ll also find a WPS button, 2 x phone ports, 1 x power connector + button and 1 x coax connector,
