Re: Help speed up my Virgin 20meg Servive


[re: pete_thomson] [link to this post]
 
Pete is correct about the new superhub. I have just received a letter inviting me to upgrade to the 30meg service from the 20 for £30 one off fee. I have taken them up on the offer as the new service will be £1.50 per month cheaper so it should pay for itself after a while.
The new self install superhub comes in 2 days So hopefullt It will go smoothly.
I was told that S/Hub is the same as 50meg hub but that service needs an engineer to install (at £60) why do you think that is?

50Mb service is served over DOCSIS3 and is less tolerant of incorrect signal level??

My guess anyways

Thankyou Pete.
Pete being as you seem to know such things, How do I turn off the facility in Google Chrome that records my web searches and then forever keeps poping up sales suggestions. For instance I looked at a bed on John Lewis and now Google Chrome keeps popping up bed sales sites?

Search for ad blocker - even if you can't find one I'm sure you'll get a few ads for them.



If you can't fix it with a hammer you've got an electrical problem.

My super hub arrived and now installed and working. Speedtest said 31.3 meg and broadband speedchecker said 23, so there you are. It's faster that's all I care about.
