Virgin Media news

Virgin Media could be lining up another treat for its broadband subscribers - the launch of a new, ultra-fast wireless router.

ISPreview.co.uk believes the company is close to announcing the introduction of the SuperHub 3, which will feature 802.11ac specifications.

The new router is expected to support wireless local network speeds of up to 1,300Mb.

According to the news provider, the router went through the official WiFi Certification process on January 20th this year.

As such, the site expects Virgin Media will make an announcement about the new connectivity device shortly.

ISPreview.co.uk says the router - which will be a customised version of a Netgear device - will offer all the usual features, including USB and four Gigabit Ethernet ports.

It is likely to support the DOCSIS 3.0/ Euro-DOCSIS 3.0 specification, which means Virgin Media could theoretically increase its maximum broadband speeds again in the future.

At the moment, the top-tier Virgin Media broadband packages offer up to 152Mb download speeds.

These are the fastest available from one of the main national broadband providers in the UK.
