From a 50Mb Superhub 2, to a 200Mb gamers Super hub 3 - DON'T!

DON'T UPGRADE! SERIOUSLY!

Used Thinkbroadband and Speedtest to monitor my ping etc. a few weeks before they sent my 'upgrade'. I also work for a large hosting company and are independently monitoring the quality of the service for our own personal analysis.

Speedtest on 50Mb SH2.0 I was getting SOLID 51Mb/3.5Mb and ping at around 10~12MS.

Got my SH 3.0 and moved to a 200/20Mb package.

Get 80Mb max/21Mb and a SHOCKING 24MS ping (some tests it went to 28MS).

So yeah, the upload is up, but download is barely increased (200Mb is a distant dream at the moment), and I've sacrificed all that for an absolutely APPALLING latency downgrade.

Don't do it guys. I'll be asking for a refund and will be backing out of this contract. They don't appear to be able to do anything about the latency.

You're really moaning about a 24 ping!? you do realise anything under 70 is playable right? I get 30-40 ping in games and I've had no problems what so ever.
