Can someone tell me why Virgin advertise 1140MB on their 1GB service when we don't get that speed?! I mean I know the Hub 4 can only handle 1GB but they shouldn't advertise something they can't provide!!
As with all VM services that is speed to the hub, if you run the real speed test at https://samknows.com/realspeed/ that will show what the hub is getting, and also what is capable of the device.
Have a look on https://www.virginmedia.com/shop/broadband/speeds under the minimum faq it states "If the actual download speed provided from our network to your Virgin Media Hub falls below the minimum guaranteed download speed (which is 50% of the advertised speed for your broadband service on the date you placed your order), and this happens for 3 consecutive days or more (whether continuously or intermittently during the day) and we are unable to fix the problem, you may be able to leave your contract without paying an early disconnection fee."

"That is their "Get out of jail card", or that the HUB4 can receive 1.1Gb/s (+10% Contention) from the Coax and you can sometimes see this if you are lucky in the SamKnows (random speeds) Software built into HUB4.
Never going to get out the LAN port to one device or WIFI.
What?! Why did you even mention that? It's the speed to the hub......that's like saying, i'm getting a new car with 1000 bhp with 1000 going to the engine but from the engine to the wheels its only 940bhp!! They should provide a better router or give us the chance to buy our own instead of only putting the hub 4 into modem mode (which still doesn't help as it can only out 1Gb/s).
