Same, but mine was downloaded on 07-Dec-2016 about 5:05am where I saw it in the logs, but I had to tell it to do a reboot due to it hadn't rebooted.

After reboot I had the new firmware, and I can say we haven't had Wi-Fi drop out on us since the 7th, I know its only been a week, so maybe time will tell.

This is what mine says at the moment:

Product name: BT Hub 6A
...
Firmware version: SG4B1000223E
Firmware updated: 07-Dec-2016
Board version: 1.0
Gui version: 1.32.0
WAN: PPP Connected
...
Software variant: -
Boot loader: 7.33.1

There are still loads of issues on it, I just haven't got around to phoning the FTTP Faults team with the issues due to I hate sitting in the BT queue for 40 mins to an hour.

one thing i've noticed though,

DSL uptime:19 days,01 Hours59 Mins05 Secs

With the 5A and 6A - i tended to never get over 14days connected.

Yes that also seemed to be sorted, in my case anyway, by turning off FON. That stopped the reboots for me on the Hub B. I never had a problem with the Hub 6 however

There is no link in the disabling of BT FON also called BT Wi-Fi and the 14 day reboot.

We have had BT FON disabled from the day we joined BT due to our connection was bad as it was, so we wanted all that we could.

And our Hub 4A was rebooting every 14 days give or take a few hours.

As for the 14 day reboot of hubs 3, 4 and 5 I think its down to bad design and the 14 day reboot stops the hub getting to a bad state resulting in a lock up.

Not too sure if the Smart Hub does the same 14 day reboot, I know it has done a couple of reboots, but that was for firmware updates and all the other updates was me doing loads of reboots for various reasons.

At this current time mines been connected for:

Network uptime: 10 Days, 1 Hours 31 Minutes 
 System uptime: 10 Days, 1 Hours 33 Minutes

So another 4 or so days to go.

I don't even think the firmware is buggy...

The plusnet hub is a rebranded homehub 5A and doesn't reboot, many users get over 100 days uptime with it.

The rebranding "might" also remove the reboot.

I know for 100% that both of my Home Hub 4A did its reboots every 14 days no matter how stable your connection was.

Going by what's been posted on here and the BT Forums and who I have spoken to at BT they all have the reboot issue and its does that for stability (so BT tell me), maybe phusnet does something different, who knows.

But all in all, I have never had a Home Hub 5, so I cannot be 100% sure.

Saying that, overall the Smart Hub despite its Wi-Fi issues and the odd cosmetic bugs, its the best one I have used so far, I still prefer my Fritz!Box 3390 over the Smart Hub due to the Smart Hub is so locked down.

No exactly, the plusnet one hub has smart setup and the 14 day reboot removed...

The One Hub does not crash and gets 100+ days uptime regularly which indicates that if the HH5A did not reboot chances are it would be fine.
