if anyone needs a new router/superhub then they'll bosh them in the post i would imagine rather then sending engineers to everyones homes. I've already got one of the netgear all in 1 modem/routers but not sure if i'll get a superhub or not as I don't know up to what speeds this one handles.
Edit: Just checked on the Vm site and the VMDG280 all in one media hub is only good for up to 20meg, the superhub is good for over 100meg. Looks like they will be sending out a lot of new superhubs.
I might be wrong here, but I'm fairly sure 50Mb or over meant that an engineer rolleyes had to come out to do the connection.
I wonder if that's still the case?
yes it is as easy as that...if there are no other problems...maybe the faster speeds are more susceptible to fluctuating signal levels which an engineer can check and adjust...etc.. but thats o ly a guess on my part.Surely its just a case a unscrewing the coax cable from your old router and screwing it into your new one, then going through a few instructions on how to get it working!?
I think they'll probably post them out, but i could be wrong!!
I may call them at lunch to see what they say as im due to be upgraded by March...
Just trawled this thread and some interesting points.
I'm on 30mb and paid for the superhub to upgrade from 20mb. I was able to retain my 'loyalty bonus'. Moving any higher would be prohibitive as I would lose it, so in reality I am being manipulated into taking a particular package.
I would say that 30mb is pretty impressive. I would also suggest that if every single virgin media customer doubled their speed, probably less than 1% would actually have any benefit from it.
It's more about bragging rights and statistics than really useful technology. This just as the net is under pressure of impending regulation. You just know that governments would love to be able to control it to some degree. I wonder if the Arab spring is in some small part down to the freedom of speech the internet has opened up.
Anyway, let's hope the speed increase doesn't just cause unnecessary unrest because of the extended upgrade times.
Gotta love a boost though!
