      They offered me a Sky Hub because I had one of the original routers and said if I still have blackspots to order a free booster by 27 Feb. Now they're saying out of stock but you can still register. I don't really need one but I've ordered one anyway at the price. Might come in handy for the garden on the off-chance we get a summer.

      Hi NickS,

      Did you see much improvement to wireless reception changing to the SR102? I haven't bothered changing mine because coverage, if not speed, is adequate.

      I have had no correspondence at all with Sky over this, I just ordered on the website and that was it. Certainly no offer of getting the booster as well as the Hub.

      Re: How long is the wireless extender taking to arrive?

      I can't really comment on speed or coverage because the wireless on my Sky router died over 3 years ago so I was using an n cable router as a wireless access point which had no issues re speed or coverage, but I kept getting dropouts on various devices which have now stopped. What is noticeable is the connection to my Sky+ HD box which used to drop out daily but is now stable and noticeably faster. As a bonus Sky have restarted DLM testing since I changed the router, my line had been set at 13Mbps and last night I was on 14.5Mbps with a rock solid connection

      If you have the old Sagem, you should fit the new Hub. Although it is not great, it is far better than your old G router, especially if you have wireless N adapters. You might also find it gets you a better speed as it works better with DLM, so your line can train better.

      Wondered if the new DLM testing and speed increase was connected with the new hub. Thought the improvement in Sky+ HD connectivity might have something to do with it
