Great deal, but the Homehub is a terribly faulty bit of kit.

Sorry to go off topic but i've had one for bout 12mths now and have had no real problems, any reason why u think this?

Don't fancy having my browsing spied on by ]Phorm

I'm on my *fourth*, yes, fourth, BT Home Hub (1st version).

They all acquired the same fault, after a while browsing the internet went severely flakey. It would keep "clicking" (resetting) itself for no apparent reason and I was forever selecting "repair" connection to get back online. A couple of them died completely.

All connected by ethernet cable. Don't get me started on the problems I had with wireless..!

Half-wondering whether I should phone up and ask for the new version. Though fingers crossed, this one is behaving itself.

I don't like the Home Hub. The new one keeps ****ing up my wireless connection, the old ones would never work the firewall correctly. When you could unlock them, great, but the new firmware seems to prevent you from unlocking them.

I have a Homehub and have no problems at all. In fact I find it an excellent piece of kit giving me full signal strength on my wireless connection anywhere in the house or garden.

HOWEVER, be prepared for a battle to get the cashback. When I got mine they were doing vouchers and it took me 3 months of emails and phone calls, gradually working my way higher up the organisation until they finally agreed to send them as a "good will gesture". They claimed that they had no record of my filling in the online rebate form (despite having a printed copy of the form).

Well I thought that this might be of interest to anyone daft enough to be thinking of signing up for BT Broadband or unlucky enough to have no other option.

It seems that everyone seems to have the same opinion of BT as I do.

This was never going to be hot;-)

Actually, I quite *like* BT, apart from the hilarity that ensues when a Glaswegian and Indian try to communicate (not) at their call centre. And my problems mentioned before with the Home Hub.

I find myself using my old Voyager 100 when the Home Hub dies, shame the HH can't reconnect instantly like the older modem can. I'm too nervous of other companies woes to go to another ISP, though some friends tell me Virgin is a pretty good bet. Maybe once my contract runs out..

I find the BT Home Hub ok wirelessly.
My experience is most of the off shore helpdesk agents are useless, they can't understand me, I cant understand them, even some of the UK agents a pretty hopeless (tried ordering BT Vison, this is good).
