Well I would expect it for free going by how rubbish the HH4 has been for us and what I have also heard for 5.

I have only been using our replacement HH4 due to our fubar broadband connection, and BT Support always asking for it to be connected.

Else I would be using my FRITZ!Box 3390.

Yes, I sure won't buy it... I would also be expecting this to replace poor performing HH5('s)

I never said anything about buying any BT Home Hubs, both HH4 we have were both free, however I still prefer my FRITZ!Box 3390.

Like I have already said I am stuck using our BT HH4 due to our line issues and BT always requiring their HH to be connected to the line while they do their tests.

Also I don't think the HH6 is for FTTC or FTTP, I am thinking its for their new G.FAST Product, I am thinking this due to nearly every site I have read that spoke about the HH6 was referring it with G.FAST etc.
Also the specs for the HH6 seems over the top for FTTC/P, like its Wi-Fi is over the top also.
It will still probably work on FTTC/P, but I think its more designed for G.FAST.

However when ever BT pulls their fingers out their backside and finishes off our FTTP install which was/is still part of the Commercial upgrade, I will have to buy a new Modem/Router for that due to my FRITZ!Box isn't fast enough for FTTP (330/30) speeds, or if it is its on the borders of it.

But as for buying a BT Home Hub, I don't think so, especially with their fortnightly forced reboot, where as with my FRITZ!Box it never did any, so my guesses with that is the BT Modems/Routers are a pile of poop.

I know I wont be buying any, also like I already said in my other reply, I think its designed for their G.FAST Product, it might still work for FTTC/P products, but will probably be just a waste of hardware, but saying that, it just means it wouldn't have to work hard to do stuff on the slower connections etc.

Have you seen the specs for the HH6 - if so, could you share?

I doubt it's designed for use especially for g.fast use though - Openreach won't properly rollout g.fast until 2017 and at the moment the chipsets from different manufacturers are so immature that they are not currently compatible with each other.

As such, I fully expect Openreach to provide the g.fast modem via engineer installs when they first launch with no self install option for a couple of years.
