How good is the wifi on the THG3000 as I have changed isp due to poor wifi from their router/modem. I did read somewhere that if subscribing to the 910mps package you automatically got provided with the superior Ultra Hub. Took delivery of the new router today only to find that I've been supplied with the THG3000. Hope this will solve my wifi issues.
Solved! Go to best answer.
Vodafone could update it for you, but I'm not sure they would be willing to do that as they apparently should be returned at end of contract.
Actually that is not possibly not true, others has stated it on here, but checking the price plan here:
So yes, people could sell them on.
You didn't come from Now, by any chance?
You only get the Ultra hub on Pro II, nothing to do with the speed chosen.
Personally I find the THG3000 perfectly adequate for Wi-Fi. It's getting "a bit long in the tooth" and is "overly locked down" but does a good job. You have to bear in mind most ISP routers are provided as cheaply as possible.
There is nothing to stop anyone from using their own router on Vodafone, though getting Digital Voice information and set up can be a pain. Like most ISP routers the THG3000 is more than enough for most users. If you have a specific reason to think it may not be enough for you, there are plenty of regulars here who can help you set up your own device.
I have Recommended a good friend to move to vodafone the supplied THG3000 router the wifi coverage is terible he politly requsted them to supply alternative router the refused this was the directors office at vodafone he is going to move back to Bt the router has much better wifi it covers his house in full i suspect he will be moving all his other services 5 numbers all out of contract and other services to another provider shortly all vodafone had to do was provide a pro router that has much better wifi coverage as standard
They do supply the Pro II Ultra router as standard, but only on Pro II. If they gave it out on the non-Pro services, there would be no reason anyone would take up the more expensive Pro II option.
The THG3000's Wi-Fi is probably not as good as the BT router, but it comes with a service that isn't at BT prices.
Horses for courses.
the prices for Bt and Vodafone are very similar now
But the Bt Hub covers on wi fi over 70 feet
the Vodafone Thg3000 is lucky if the WiFi covers more than 15 feet in same house router in same location
Rufford West Lancashire
Out of interest I ran a comparison of prices for a random address in Rufford (The Hesketh Arms), and you are right the prices are somewhat closer there. I chose the 100 MBs service as that is probably what I will go for when FTTP finally reaches here.
Which is very annoying, as I live in the urban sprawl of South East Essex (Hadleigh) and am still stuck on FTTC.
But I am only paying Vodafone £22.88 including anytime calls, and I have a very good FTTC connection, so I shouldn't really complain.
