The Switch is better than the Hub because it is more intelligent. For example, Port A needs to send data to Port B, the hub will simply flood all
available ports, while a switch will forward the data to appropriate port. So, you practically have more bandwidth to be used when using a switch.
Other than these, a switch provides other benefits like VLAN,
layer-3 switching, etc.
