After reading lots of threads on this forum , i was starting to think i maybe was doomed after getting Virgin media installed in Feb?
Heres my conclusion
100mbit is Great , i get between 89-104mbit . Only issue i have had is the router side of the superhub is a pile of rubbish , i replaced it with a cheapy £10 Second hand wireless N router off of ebay and now works perfect . ( no more wireless drop outs ! )
TV , catchup is great ! has stopped working a few times for our box's . But comes back eventually . Normal TV is fine and always seems to work .
Phone .. Apart from giving us some dodgy number which some scummy debt ridden person obviously had before us ( we got a number of calls from debt collections , Indians telling us there from MS and other randoms) . It works fine and a no interference like our BT line did !
Thumbs up from me ! ( at the moment lol ! )

am sorry but how does someone being in debt make them scummy ??
Have you never had any kind of finance ? are you a millionaire ?

I'm also very happy with the 100 meg. Can't comment on the superhub as I don't have one. Speed varies between 95 and 104 meg

what I would do is login to the hub and ban his ip from using the net hahaha JK
but what routers/hubs do you all use? I find it so much easier to use the super hub and I have the beta R36 firmware and it runs so smoothly, plus I love having a hub rather then a modem and a router.. much less wires and hassle imo

Had it for a week now with no issues at all. 12MB download speeds pretty much constantly, 104Mb or so showing in Speedtest... fantastic speeds.
I've heard the superhub is a bit naff and, while i haven't had any issues yet, i'm definitely upgrading to a better router asap (if only for dual band support as my flat mate's laptop doesn't support the 5ghz line and he's too bone idle to upgrade).
All i will say is that i think people get confused between MB and Mb. People can't honestly expect 100 megaBYTE download speeds can they? A 10GB file in 10 seconds? Now THAT would be worth any amount of money.
Anyone have any suggestions for decent dual-band routers that work well with 100Mb cable?
