Re: Hub4

Wireless can have many factors impacting it, you wont get 1gig on wifi unless your on wifi 6 with a compatible router and device and a clean signal with no interference, I get between 3-400 on my 1gig package on a dedicated mesh wifi network, the hub 4 is good but not great. 

 

My advice get a decent standalone wifi router (used in AP mode only) and use that while the hub 4 does the main routing

Re: Hub4

As the above poster said but it's more likely your devices WiFI limiting the speed if your next to router and still slow.

In Android go in WiFi setting and then click on your connected network and view "link speed" this is the theoretical maximum speed your device can hit. As an example I have a Motorola One Zoom and its only a 1x1 device so peaks at 450mbps. My Samsung S10 Lite peaks at 850mbos (2x2).

On Windows go into CMD (search for CMD or command prompt and type the below.

Netsh WLAN show interfaces 

That will show your link speed. 

I have a WiFi router (DLink Dir-882) which is capable of 160mhz on 5GHz or about 1600mbps but none of my devices can actually hit that, although the S10 comes close. 

I would check your devices before you but a new WiFi 6 router or anything like that as you may not even hit 1gbps with a fancy new AP.

Perhaps they have believed Virgin's TV adverts about their "fastest ever WiFi".

Re: Hub4

@jpeg1 Perhaps they have believed Virgin's TV adverts about their "fastest ever WiFi".

The expression "our fastest ever" only references a company's own previous products, so given the legacy of lacklustre hubs, VM's claim is probably correct. 

Applying the same principle to another product, Dacia could legitimately claim that Sandero is their fastest ever car, but despite that I suspect Lewis Hamilton won't be rushing to buy one.

Re: Hub4

Yes yes yes I'm aware of how they can justify the claim.  

I'm also aware that many people don't think the advertisements through and accept the claim of fastest WiFi at face value.

It's also unhelpful that the advert talks only about WiFi speeds, and directly leads to so many customers wrongly thinking that the speeds they pay for are WiFi speeds.
