Yep, over WiFi.
We went from Sky to Virgin's TiVo TV box as it's much cheaper, and they installed a new SuperHub while they were at it. The old one we got ~90Mbps downstairs and ~20Mbps upstairs over WiFi; now, we get ~130Mbps downstairs and ~75Mbps upstairs. That Speedtest was literally on top of the router.

It hasn't been dropping out like the last one either, though I did have to disconnect and reconnect on my iPad once or twice.

However, hopefully next year, I'll get a new ac Time Capsule and just have the SuperHub in modem mode - I've always found Apple's routers to be the most reliable.

Just set up the new Airport Extreme.

Same location as before,(about 15m away with walls in between) but now get ~ 50Mb/s faster over wifi. No drop outs after half a day, but there is a problem between this and our LG WebOS TV. I reckon its to do with the AE's single network for both 2GHz and 5GHz.

Connected over wifi, I must say I am satisfied with my speeds, especially when I am only paying 60/month for it. Plus I cannot get any other ISP in the area
