      The Sky HD light does indeed light up, Don't get over excited about the specs of this beast... whilst an improvement on the previous router its not as up to date as it could be. I have also heard of a version of this in Black?

      The biggest outward change seems to be the built in PSU. Maybe that's why it is a good bit fatter than most routers. It wouldn't be black for fibre and white for ADSL, would it? Or does that make too much sense.

      Much like the Sagem 2504N, the Sky Hub works on both Sky's ADSL and Fibre connections. Whether they will issue one version specifically for ADSL only and another for Fibre, but compatible with ADSL, or just issue the same firmware for either connection, isn't known.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB
      Speedtest: 17.15MB/s 0.97Mb/s Ping 31 ms
