Homehub 6 (smart hub)

Looks like you can order them by phone

Also they're being offered when taking up a new contract

Anyone got specs?

It's odd that they're available with no public info available. I can't find anything useful.

Hmmm. That looks as though it comes with powerline with passthrough power at the router and ethernet + wifi at the remote. Similar to this kit but slimmer. Probably a lot faster than the TP-Link as well.

All I've found so far is

HH5 wireless AC 3x3 mimo
HH6 wireless AC 7x7(?) mimo

I'm assuming
G.fast support of some sort

And rumours of mobile signal booster is also been said.

Some people have them already

Would like to get the full stats before I order one.

The 7 antenna I can confirm, G.fast nothing yet and I'd be surprised

Living with HH5a currently and as a plug and play it seems fine (replaced a Sky Hub SR102), some blips on wireless but suspect that's 2.4GHz vs 5GHz and swapping band, will tweak and see if that goes away.

I've found my HH5a connects MUCH more reliably with the 2 bands separated. Not just mine, but several friends' as well).

Very nice, looking forward to it.

My superhub is dead so wouldn't mind jumping to a HH6

Splitting the 2.4GHz and 5Ghz is a part of the wireless troubleshooting BT do, not sure why it doesn't come as standard like this, Virgin's SH2 came that way.

... the specification clearly suggests a powerful device, which features 7 antennas, a modern chipset (Broadcom 63137, 4366, 43602) and built-in filters that automatically block interference....

Specification for the BT Smart Hub
* Integrated ADSL2+ and VDSL2
* No. of antennae: 7
* Dual wi-fi bands with “next generation” 802.11ac spec
* 2.GHz wi-fi band (3×3 11b/g/n/ac) = up to 217Mbps
* 5GHz wi-fi band (4×4 11a/n/ac) = up to 1700Mbps
* Built-in Advanced Filters
* Connections: 4 x Gigabit Ethernet
* USB: 1 x v2.0 Port
* On/off light control: Yes (i.e. you can switch off or dim the hub lights)
* Removable password card: Yes
* Smart Wireless: Yes
* BT Smart Scan: Yes
* Built-in 4G filters: Yes
* Power Usage (11W fully loaded and 7W idle)
NOTE: Regarding the 4G filters, these protect the 2.4GHz wi-fi receiver against neighbouring signals above and below the wi-fi band which can desensitise or “deafen” a standard wi-fi chip. This is more of a protection against future deployments as these bands are not heavily occupied, yet.
