An shub is a "Secondary Hub" ... it's a remotely located extension of a phub ... Rogers only has a few shubs on its network.
This is all under review since Rogers has stopped providing names for its CMTS routers and first level phub routers so all we now get are IP addresses. Maybe in due course we can work these out and tie IP addresses to locations ... but that's going to be a lot of work! This appears to have happened after Rogers started providing greater TPIA service (Third Party Internet access) to companies like TekSavvy.
And just to confuse things further, I gather Rogers apparently have internal codes for these locations which users don't see so if you talk to them about such and such a phub, they may not actually know where it is!!!
In the past, you'd see something like this in a tracert.
Hop IP Name
1) 192.168.0.1 Your router
2) 10.1.2.3 The CMTS you're connected to ... usually unnamed.
3) ?.?.?.? gw03.flfrd.phub.net.cable.rogers.com CMTS routing
4) ?.?.?.? gw01.flfrd.phub.net.cable.rogers.com Rogers network gateway from your phub
5) ?.?.?.? gw01.bloor.phub.net.cable.rogers.com Rogers network gateway at the bloor phub
6) ... elsewhere
A phub ip domain address will look like this ...
Now, all we can do is guess where you're connected by proximity to the geographic location of the phubs.
geoloc is a geographic location of a phub from the following list. The list is not complete ... for example it doesn't have the NB or NF phubs yet and it's probably got a number of retired phubs listed. Scroll down for table.
Below are lists of known geographic locations on Rogers network ... active phubs, rncs (regional networking centres) and gateways, and retired locations
