Is the EE "Smart Hub" the *SAME* as the BT "Smart Hub"?


[link to this post]
 
Is the EE "Smart Hub" the *SAME* as the BT "Smart Hub"? I know BT are now EE's parent company, and the physical dims look the same, as do the plastic feet, glowy-light thingymajig, etc. Any ideas? Custom Google searches bring back sparse results OR photos, even from EE *themselves*

Thank you smile

UPDATE:

Thanks to someone selling one on eBay, there seems to be no doubt whatsoever that the EE "Smart Hub" is the same as the BT variant; look...

It's priced too high I think, when an updated Homehub may well work on EE with modification, just as they do on BT owned Plusnet.

Of course it's priced too high; you're talking about EE who claimed the Bright Box #1 was "Worth £95!" back when it was first released, LMAO!

Since when do you think ISPs have UNDER-valued their generic, mass-produced, poorly tested, built-down-to-a-price creaky plastic boxes? Since never is when. There's a reason these routers are free, and it ain't nothing to do with the benevolence of the ISP, it's because they're as cheap as they can get from whatever supplier, rarely and poorly updated, and quickly abandoned... and then along comes the NEXT version of "Our best router everrrrrrrr!" >_<

Haha.

Since when did you think that I did. 30 - 50 pounds will buy a very good VDSL IPv6 router, without putting up with an ISP router, unless I want to hack one for improvement with LEDE or the like.
One of the best for sensible money.

A decent router for little money.

And not forgetting those on cable or modem owners.

While the 8800NL R2 may be fine for VDSL2 and IPv6 it fails at the wireless side with just single band 2.4 GHz 802.11n wireless.

I don't call solid, reliable and a good range a fail, though just for phones, tablets and a couple of laptops here - Four desktops and all media devices wired - Wi-fi destroys melatonin production anyway. Health more important than dual or even single band Wi-Fi.
