Virgin Media is set to launch a next-generation wireless broadband router.
The new Super Hub is currently being tested by a number of customers, ahead of a full launch in the coming weeks.
Virgin Media says the router boasts maximum speeds even faster than BT’s new Home Hub 4, thanks to an extra antenna on the 5GHz channel.
This improves both range and speed, the broadband provider stated.
"Powered by the latest dual band technology, [our] new Super Hub will enable concurrent access to both the 5GHz and 2.4GHz wireless channels," Virgin Media claimed.
The router will also deliver "unrivalled connectivity" throughout customers’ homes, it stated.
Last month, Virgin Media announced that it had added 25,500 new broadband subscribers during the first three months of 2013.
This took the firm's broadband customer base to 4,490,500.
