Yeah, off-topic I have a bee in my bonnet about Murdoch.

Yes, WTG. So much can be got, including freesat, without resorting to the Full Kahoona

Back on topic. Virgin will really have to up its game regarding latency and connection symmetry. This affects gaming, but also applications like remote surgery and manufacture where instant response is vital. Not only will the competition soon beat them on speed, but also on connection quality.

Who is doing remote surgery via a residential broadband connection?

At least that's my understanding, as I've always used Modem mode and my own Routers.

I believe there's an option to DMZ on the SHUB3 (not 100% as mine is in modem mode only) this could possibly solve some issues
