      OK, Sky has just gone live, stuck on the 4Mb for now, but that will increase over the next few days

      I (and probably certain other beta teaters) would love to contribute to this discussion with confirmation of various details, but we are still bound by the NDA. One of our number has enquired about release from this embargo but as yet there is no reply.

      You may also be aware that a small group of beta testers has prepared a number of detailed (and hopefully useful) documents about this product, but again these are being held back for publication following the official product launch. Not sure if this was intended to be a SkyUser exclusive but...

      Overall, what do you think of the Hub?
      Hello, Yep this is the first time ive had Sky BB, Im quite a way from the exchange so was looking at 1 or 2 meg before fiber came along, Only had it installed yesterday but from what I can see the Hub seems pretty solid and stable. Although it only seems to run at the slower wifi speed (which is fine for 40mbps) the range seems good and better than virgins hub.

      I am aware of that, my comments were more of a general observation about the current state of disarray that this sudden turn of events seems to have caused

      Sky should really purge people from the NDA now IMO as the specs are out, the Hubs are out in the field, and no one from the Beta Team leaked a sausage in the public domain.

      All the documents that the team have produced are excellent, and definitely useful, and I still feel that they should be held back for when the router is released officially. However, if Sky release people from the NDA then there is no reason why the documents cannot be published.

      It was an exclusive, but Sky decided to field test the new Hub, so at least there is some consolation that all the hard work by the Beta Team etc will be worth it once we publish them.

      Its a shame though, as everyone worked so hard to get it ready etc

      Thats a shame, it would be nice for someone to confirm the differences in quality for wireless against an existing Sky Router. Loads of people have reported good things about the wireless on the new Hub.

      Welcome aboard anyway, glad that you are happy, and also that you signed up to our forums.

      I still want a hub for review, but Sky seem to be taking their time deciding lol
