Upload still on 12 Mb NOT 20Mb

Upgraded to the vivid 200 Gamer package I currently have the s/hub 2 ac in modem mode with a Asus ac68u router.

Am I right in saying I'll need the hub 3 for these speeds?? (200/20)

I would prefer not to have the hub 3 as I've heard it's still buggy and what's the new black hub 3 like?

Re: Upload still on 12 Mb NOT 20Mb

After talking to 3 tech support & 1 customer service rep it turns out I'm on vivid 200 (200 down/12 up) even though I asked for vivid 200 gamer (200/20) and that if I still would like the new gamer speed I will need the hub 3 + £5 extra p/m so I'll wait until I hear good things about the hub 3.

If you don't stream your gameplay live you don't really need the Gamer package.

I and the kids do some times plus I upload a lot of tech scam videos to youtube so the 20 up would be a bonus.

They want people on the hub3 for it, but you will be in modem mode where it is buggy.


There has been a report of someone on gamer profile going from hub3 to 2ac and it still working so not sure what the looks limitations are. Just with the 2 channels being locked on 2ac it will be easier to hit upload contention on those channels.

Re: Upload still on 12 Mb NOT 20Mb

They are working on an issue for the modem mode port flapping issue for the hub3, afaik there is a large thread somewhere that if you have a hub3/the port flapping issue, they can put you on the firmware trial which is 'meant' to fix it.


Depends what you are really after though.


Is 12Mbs causing you any issues as it is?

Re: Upload still on 12 Mb NOT 20Mb

I don't suppose you have a link to that trial as I have the exact same issue on Hub3 (and still not getting 20mb up). I would be willing to trial the new firmware to see if this improves stability.

 

Kind Regards

That's the thread people were being directed to before. Post on there and see what happens for you.
