Could that be why VM won't allow it?
Infinity 4th April!
Well if they are doing 4 bonded downstreams and only one up on every tier trying to banish the VMNG300 makes no sense at all. I swear I read that it can handle up to 200Mb and we're a couple of years away from that. If they're so worried about costs of upgrading a large number of CPEs, you'd think shifting the modems they have would be a priority. I don't buy Masque saying "oh they only keep Ambit 300s to do like for like swaps in case of failure" either; surely then would be the time to upgrade to the Super Hub, not before? From a business point of view VM are pulling some stupid, half-cocked nonsense it seems.

Uh-oh. See that big streak just before 4pm? Looks like one of those classic "Super Hub" blips to me. If I see more than three in one day, out it comes.
