      Virgin use N grade rourters. Works on 5Ghz frequency.
      It will also work on the 2.4GHz frequency, but unlike high quality dual band routers, not both together. There is little advantage in using 5 GHz apart from the fact that it has much more available channels, therefore less chance of interference. 2.4GHz actually has a better range and wall penetrating power than 5 GHz.

      Just thinking about it both my Virgin routers came on 2.4Ghz as standard and it was me that changed it to 5Ghz due to living in a block of flats.

      Airport extreme works much better as it dual broadcasts.

      Roll on 802.11ac and 802.11ad, don't see them coming out any time soon though.
