HomeHub 5: http://recombu.com/digital/news/bt-home-hub-5-wifi-a...

Two key points:

1. itís a dual-band WiFi AC router

2. the new Home Hub is also a consolidated VDSL modem and router

Secondly, the new Home Hub is also a consolidated VDSL modem and router. Designed to work with the BT Infinity 1 and 2 FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet) products, this means you wonít need to have a separate Openreach VDSL modem installed in your home.

I like.

That'll be a pain when you want something with more features than the HomeHub range come with.

I would assume that those people who want to use a 3rd party router will still use their current Openreach modems. It does however make it much better for those who do want to use the HomeHub without having two boxes plugged in and having less wires.

I had assumed new connections would only get the HH5.

So, previously people complained that the BT solution was a 2 box. BT changes to a single unit and there will be another crowd who want a return to the original separates!

That is true, I had not thought of that.

I would like VDSL self install to finally arrive. This box could be sent out, possibly with a faceplate for the master socket, anyone wanting an engineer visit and an Openreach modem can pay the extra.

I wonder how that works with Openreach though, who presumably always supply an Openreach modem under their contract with the ISP regardless of the hardware the ISP supplies.
