I was not happy with my internet speed on M100 package (coming from HyperOptic 150Mb package), so I upgraded to the M200 package, just to find my Internet speed to be around 90Mb at best. Tested the WiFi, router (I had a mesh router), and the virgin hob itself, eventually figured out the slow speed came from the cat5e cable used between the virgin hob and the router. Swap out to a cat6 cable (came with virgin hob) and now I am running at 200+Mb.
What I found strange is that on HyperOptic, I can get full 150Mb connection on Cat5e cable, so I don't know if I should blame the virgin hub or my netgear router.
You cannot just go on the markings on a cable. It’s the quality and thickness of the wires in that cable that really matter. I’m on 500/35 service and have the hub in modem mode to by own router. I constantly get 550/37 on all the speed tests I do. The cable between the Hub3 and my Ubiquiti router is just a Cat5 cable, yes Cat5 not even Cat5e. It’s a very good, solid wire not stranded, AT&T US cable.
