I expect this was the reason -
and also meets the new European rules for power consumption when on standby
If the old one didn't they'd be breaching the EU based regulations for new customers.

Integrated Gigabit switch with 4 x 10/100 (Fast not Gig) ports


What's the use of a Gigabit switch that you can't use?

So you can simultaneously use multiple ports at full speed to give an total simultaneous transfer rate of > 100mbps?

My home network is gigabit and I currently have a gigabit router and two gigabit switches. I'd have no use for their new router unless it handled VDSL in which case I could just use it as an internet gateway and DHCP server.

Someone has gleaned a chipset specification not intended for the end-user and which only makes sense for the router manufacturer. It means the manufacturer can use the integrated 10/100 ports, or take advantage of the option to add their own Gigabit ports without needing an extra switch. Since this router does the former, the internal specification is therefore indeed useless/meaningless to the end-user.

It does not refer to backplane capacity of the switch - these modern, small consumer switches are all usually capable of line speed on all ports simultaneously, so if it said 100 Mbps switch there would be no practical difference.

Surely this can cope with 80/20 FTTC but what happen if BTO increase from 80/20 to 120/20 in future mean 4 x 10/100 will be no benefit!
