He wants to use a BT homehub 3 type A on Virgin media's ADSL service AKA national service. THe router supplied by Virgin plays up very regularly and is sick of it! He enjoyed his BT hub and gave him fast speeds of up to 6mbits and the Virgin media netgear hub gives to 3mbits. The BTW speed check shows a profile of 8mbits and can only achieve 3mbits so we know BT hub will have an impact. After scouring the virgin site the user name will be (theusername)@adsl.virgin.net and password would be the myvirginmedia password. He wasn't sure if it will work on Virgin. He originally got it off his friend and he was with talktalk ADSL and Fibre and it worked for him as well so should be no probs.
