HUB 3 vs HUB 4 on M500

Hi

Recently go upgraded from M200 to M500 and WiFi and wired speeds are good. 

I’m currently running my HUB 3 in modem mode connected to a Netgear R8000 router. 

My question is that is there any benefit in upgrading to a HUB 4 if I’m going to run it in modem mode - what are the benefits if any between HUB 3 and HUB 4 and do I need it in my situation. 

thanks

No real benefit - as you are in modem mode. Leave it as it is unless you want to go to 1GB - where the Hub4 is required

For M500 you won't get a hub 4 anyway unless VM provides it for network reasons such as congestion.

Hi You can get offerd the hub4 on 500M as I got the email offer to get it for free but it was the same day as the gig1 whent live in my area. As far as I can tell there's no network problem in my area. Anyways I did upgrade to GIG1 so I'll get the hub4 ether way.
