      A Couple of Questions

      I'm on Sky broadband unlimited & get 40mb download, 10mb upload according to the stats in the SR102.

      Is it worth me changing my router, if so, what are the benefits. Lots of devices in the house & wireless ok but not amazing. Got a wifi booster in operation.

      Final stupid question, will I need to change to a BT Openreach box if changing to different router?

      Thought 40/10 was best one could get.

      40/10 is the maximum you get on Sky Unlimited Fibre. Unless you are finding something lacking, there is not much point in changing. If the wireless is not too good you should consider a wireless access point with a better performance. This will prove cheaper than upgrading the Hub. This one is not too expensive and is future proofed with wireless AC. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Wireless-Con...542393&sr=1-44
