    Does anybody know which UK broadband suppliers issue gigabit routers as standard?

    My BT Infinity Homehub 4 has one gigabit port and 3 10/100 ports. One is better than none I guess, but it is annoying because the layout of my home network means the Homehub is in the middle and joins all the devices - it would be great to have them all linked at gigabit speeds.

    Apparently new subscribers from Jan 2014 will get Homehub 5, which has gigabit ports across the board:

    Virgin media's ridiculous "SuperHub" has gigabit ports, however any of the supplied routers are rubbish, I highly recommend putting them in modem-only mode and buying a proper 'wireless router'
