Superhub 3

Hi

 

Just read an article from ISP Review on the intended new "Superhub 3"

 

Specs

 

* Euro / DOCSIS 3.0 (24 Downstream and 8 Upstream channels)
* 4 Gigabit Ethernet LAN Ports
* 2 x RJ-11 Telephone Ports
* 802.11 AC WiFi (2.4GHz + 5GHz)
* Download Speed of up to 1 Gbps (ignore this, you won’t ever get that on VM until DOCSIS3.1 arrives)

 

What do people think on the new design ??

Of course now VM have the problem of doing a set of 24 channels bounded with the existing sets of 8 channels bounded for the existing super hubs because even if you can overlap its going to cause bandwidth problems.

 

So there is only one thing for it...everyone gets a SH3

I think it looks like a tin a fisherman would use for storing his maggots.     Smiley Very Happy      I imagine the exterior will look a bit more imaginative when it gets released.

 

I just hope it's got a maggot modem mode.

Re: Superhub 3

I can't say the exterior appearance is that important - it's how it performs that counts.

 

The photo doesn't show any external antennas, which suggests that the WiFi performance will not be significantly improved. Sellers of WiFi extenders will be relieved.

Re: Superhub 3

I have one of these, it was fitted as a new install in January, it gives good wifi coverage, the GUI interface is slower than a slow thing I get error messages waiting for it. I changed the SSID to avoid having non alphanumeric characters in it. I stream HD video via the hub and it doesn't stutter or cause any other issues.   My download speed is at the 200M maximum Good piece of kit

Re: Superhub 3

Cam I remind you all that this device is not called a Superhub 3 but is called The Hub 3.0 😀. It will not get the Super added until it's fixed.

I suspect that's a wind up but if true then it's a rare bit of honest labelling from VM

 can they now change lightning fast broadband to  just plain lightning ( as in shocking) broadband for anyone in an oversubscribed urban conurbation please
