New BT Home hub 4 with Dual band WiFi


[link to this post]
 
Posted in the fibre forum as people in here have been talking about the need for dualband wireless to utilise FTTC/P speeds.

I spotted a BT press release that may interest those interested in Dual band routers.

I would be interested in anyones views if they get hold of one of these. (Or have a view from the technical specs)

What is the wireless performance
What sort of improvement in WiFi over the old Hub 3.


Other comments about the Hub 4 performance.

Please no rants/raves about BT, just the Home hub 4!

Thanks

Keen price
The BT Hub 4 will be rolled out to BT Broadband and BT Infinity packages over the coming months, starting from Friday May 10. From June, existing BT customers will be able to upgrade for free to the new hub when they take out a new contract or they can buy one at a special price of £35 including VAT from www.bt.com.

Of cause it is a keen price since you can only use it on a BT service.

Dual band so you can have 5GHz and thus less wireless congestion will be a nice addition.

Not sure about only 1 Gigabit LAN port, seems a bit penny pinching

Depends if both bands can be used at the same time. My cable router is dual band, but only one band can be used at a time.

is a bit tight.


i wonder if they will make it so air can circulate better, my next door neighbours HH3 get pretty warm to be honest, I would worry about it.

I don't like these routers that can't be used on another service, even if they are locked for the contract, and then can be unlocked after, would be a good thing

Which is a Bt service, they sell it cheap as they know you are not going to buy a locked router and then vanish.

It combines Smart Wireless and concurrent dual band wireless (dual stream 802.1n MIMO technology simultaneously at 2.4GHz and 5GHz)
What makes you think it's locked to BT?
