Alternative Thomson/Technicolor Routers.

Shortly prior to my change to Plusnet I will receive a Plusnet router which it seems from posts here will be a TG582 Technicolor which most of you do not think highly of.
From my many years with Be I have in my loft a Be 585, TG587n and a BeBox V2 all from Thomson/Technicolor I would think.
As I'm presently with Sky and using their Hub SR102 and everyone describes the Wi-Fi as the worst ever but it is doing ok for me comparing the Wi-Fi is not applicable, but I would like to have advise if any of my 3 ex-Be units will give higher sync. speeds than the Plusnet TG582 on Fibre?
(The TG 587n wasn't on normal issue and was given to selected loyal customers and was suggested a better unit.)
Thanks
David

Subject to correction I think all those are ADSL routers which can only work with fibre - if at all - using the BT modem so the sync speed won't be affected

Re: Alternative Thomson/Technicolor Routers.

In that case what makes the Plusnet TG582n different?

Re: Alternative Thomson/Technicolor Routers.

You would need to check but the TG582n has one of the LAN ports configured as a WAN port to receive the signal from the BT modem and I have no idea if the ones you mention have that capability
