We recently got 1gig with hub 4, set to modem mode with own router it hits 700mbps, to test the speed I switched it back to router mode.
I've tested the speed with samknows test and it says 1050mbps, but with my desktop connected directly via 2 meter cat6a Ethernet cable with router in both modem and router mode I still only get around 700mbps.
I've tried multiple Ethernet cables and my laptop and getting the same speed.
Power levels are fine with downstream at +5dbmv
My pc CPU is i7 8700k 12 core 5.1ghz so that's not the problem
I do not work for VM. My services: HD TV on VIP (+ Sky Sports & Movies & BT sport), x3 V6 boxes (1 wired 2 WiFi,) SH2 in modem mode with Airport Extreme Router +2 Airport Express's. On VIVID200, Talk Anytime Phone, x2 Mobile SIM only iPhones.
Getting 940mb is quite normal that is due to that a gigabit ethernet has a potential frame throughput of 81000 per second and therefore a high throughput for actual data (about 118 MB/s), giving efficiency of 94%, or 940Mbps. The service that VM offer as 1gbps will be for multiple devices you will never get more than 940mbps to a single device the hub only has 1gbps ports.
