Switch from EE - which router Vox3 or EE Smarthub

[link to this post]
Speeds seem to have throttled on my EE "free Broadband for life" ADSL2+ from 10Mbps to 6Mbps (this in the middle of Edinburgh, despite sync speed being >10Mbps). Fair enough, it didn't cost me anything. That said its still a very useable service for NowTV and video conferencing etc - maybe everyone else round here has switched to fibre so the contention is minimal. Anyway in this time of lockdown as I discovered I could get the Vodafone Superfast2 63Mbps for £20.95 per month including a phone line (for 18 months) which was less than I was paying BT for a phone line.... the attraction of the free for life broadband has diminished. So on Wed I should be connected to VF. My question is should I stick with my existing EE Smarthub router (like the BT one) or should I switch to the Vox 3, which seems good but very hard to actually find any specs on. I might like to extend the range with another router - is this possible with the Vox3, eg wireless connection to another router? I also have an old Netgear DGN2500 (or the EE smarthub maybe) I could use to extend it. If it is possible, any issues in doing this wirelessly? Any experiences welcome. Thanks!

You can't configure the BT and Plusnet hubs to work with Vodafone VDSL because the last part of the connection userid is restricted. I don't know so much about EE

For Vodafone you would need to enter a userid in the format [email protected]

Apart from the above the router configuration for Vodafone is the same as for Plusnet and BT.
