    Not necessarily. It depends on environment / network design that suits. It is not obviously that, free means the performance can be reduced and by cost means performance can be matched with your satisfaction. All depend on your situation's demand.

    Many thanks.
    My needs are simple - Internet; watching TV programmes and films; telephone; Only one Computer (iMac) about 8-10m from the Router.
    Do I take it there would be no gain from spending, say, €100?

    It depends on the router. If you are leasing one from your ISP I have heard they work better. I bought mine and even though I'm supposed to get 100m connections I'm lucky to get 40. I talked to a tech at the ISP and they said my router may not be configured correctly for their system, hence the slower speeds. I have also heard they can throttle your speeds based on the device ID, if it's not a leased device they will slow you down. Don't know who can verify this as the ISP won't admit they do it.
