This is getting good reviews and while more expensive than the little brother version (8800N) it has some great features that many who are on Fibre broadband require. Lowest price I've seen so far.

If you have BT Infinity -Fibre / FTTC and have a BT Openreach white modem and a seperate wireless router then this device replaces both. It will also replace the BT HomeHub5 if you're having troubles with that. Works with BT, Plusnet and pretty much all other fibre ISP's, possibly including Sky (Sky's terms and conditions state you must use the Sky supplied equipment)

Auto cold voters start your engines........go go go

Voted hot to counter the 'fridge magnets' voting it cold. Personally, I went with the Asus DSL-AC68U, but this is a cracking bit of kit for less money than I paid.

Oh wow Billion got a fibre router name? Damn, I bought an Asus RT-AC66U a few months back and had to use the OpenReach Modem. I should have held out i feel

Have some heat OP!

I'm a big fan of billion routers having had the 7800dxl and now the 8800NL on BT infinity.
These are quality routers and are well recommended, I'm voting this hot because of the brand not necessarily the price.
On the price it'll probably stay like this for a long time, billion don't reduce the prices of there products often - they expect the brand to sell itself.

How you finding the 8800NL behaves?

Can't fault it to be honest' it's reasonably rock solid stable throughout the house with an array of devices connected - laptop 3 x tablets x 3 mobiles 2 x sky boxes and a wireless canon printer. All connected at the same time with at least 3-4 devices online often.

Wireless speed tests are consistent too

What is your max download speed supposed to be? you on fibre medium (upto 40) or large (upto 80)?

It's hard to tell from your screenshot as with a mobile device you tend to get lower speed... at mine of fibre large I get around 68MBit/s on wired computers etc... and on mobile devices I get about 35-50Mbit/s

We are on " unlimited broadband with BT infinity 2 " Up to 76MB download speed / Up to 19MB upload
Wired connection -

68.95 Mbps download speed / upload speed 18.71 Mbps

Cool, thx for the info
