VMO2 Hub 5

Virgin Media has launched its new Hub 5 router, powered by WiFi 6 technology. It promises to deliver even faster speeds to connected devices throughout the home.

Wi-Fi 6 is the next generation WiFi standard, which will work with Virgin Media’s existing DOCSIS 3.1 technology. It is designed to power the next-generation of connected devices, including modern smartphones, laptops, tablets and next-gen games consoles.

With this latest technology and even more WiFi antennae than its predecessor, the Hub 5 will be able to support more devices connecting at the same time. At the same time, the device promises to be able to expand coverage and stability. In turn, this can help improve WiFi performance.

It means the new Hub 5 boasts increased WiFi speeds and lower latency. Additionally, it can help reduce interference from neighbouring hubs and devices.

The Hub 5 supports multi-gigabit speeds. It comes with a 2.5Gbps ethernet port alongside three additional 1Gbps ports.

How to get the new hub

  • Existing Virgin Media O2 broadband customers will be offered the new hub first.
  • The upgrade will come with no extra cost.
  • Eligible customers can expect a message from VMO2 soon about getting a Hub 5.
  • Hub 5 will be made available more widely available in a full launch due in 2022. This will include new customers signing up for a Virgin Media broadband service.

The Hub 5 is made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic.

Jeff Dodds, Chief Operating Officer at Virgin Media O2, said:

“At Virgin Media O2 we don’t stand still and are constantly working to give our customers the latest and most innovative technology to suit their digital needs now and in the future.

“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.”
