Why in the world you'd spend £59.99 on the BT S**te hub (or any ISP Branded router) is beyond me. No vote but there are far superior routers than this at this price point.

Seconded!!!

If you're on BT, you can pay £50 can get this as an upgrade. I did (don't judge me) and there's not a great choice of ADSL/VDSL routers

This is something you get free and then replace with non-ISP router. Why would you want to purchase it for £60?!

Seconded!!!


Could you recommend some please....?

Agreed, you should really be asking for a new router from BT before you try to buy one (or leaving if they don't!). If you are not with BT, good luck getting any support with it!

Seconded!!!



But this hub is actually really good?

A pure speculation on my end, I hold my hands up - even with the OP stating they have widespread wireless issues clearly indicates a reason not to buy it.

Spec wise, this thing packs a punch, sure. Would I still buy it with my money on it? No. A high percentage of Vermin Media users switch from using a Superhub to a third-party router purely because of reliability. A friend of mine recently switched their Homehub 6 to a Netgear-based router and couldn't be more happier.

From my experience, any ISP-branded or provided router is poor in comparison to the likes of off-the-shelf models and brands. Heck, a cheaper ASUS, TP-Link or similar would do a far superior job surely.

Mine works perfectly, especially on 802.11ac Wave 2, which this supports.

Ive got one of these, no probs at all, had a range extender for my old router, dont need one with this, it goes through 2 double brick walls and still get a good signal in the garden ( about 100ft away)

The only reason to stick with BT's junk is that without it BT Sport for example does not work on the YouView Box. Sadly, your only option if you have BT Sport or BT TV (if you use any of the Internet Channels).

My wifi signal with this router is worse than my old Talk Talk router. Not majorly, but didn't live up to the BT hype about the device.

Yeah a massive drop in coverage and performance! Absolute piece of dog dung! Don't bother. Tried everything, even a replacement from BT. 5 is much better

Seconded I have this and it works quite well have no wi-fi issues in a 3 storey building ,Changed from talktalk to BT and swapped out my Asus RT-AC66U no noticable change in performance ????

Personally I went for the Billion 8800NL, then again I didn't need wireless to be fast because I have external Wifi AP's in my house already. I dumped the BT HH5 ASAP because I couldn't do what I needed with it and basically it's not that great.

I bought a German FRITZ!Box 7490 2 years ago.. one of best gadget I ever bought.. its more than just a router.

These are plagued by problems. I've been on forums, they regularly disconnect from wireless devices and the key will need to be re-entered and occasionally will cease to authenticate meaning the unit has to be shut off and restarted.

These issues have been going on for about 3/4 months and BT is yet to resolve them. DO NOT BUY

I have these exact issues with a HH5, type A. BT won't accept their is a fault with the unit even though the logs show all wireless clients drop off at the same time...

Have turned the wifi off on this and using a Cisco AP for now until I find a better solution...

Lots of issues for me too. BT Sent me another one which is just as bad, and didn't even want the old one back! Shame as for the money it has good spec..if it worked. I guess as it's cheaper to get from BT as a customer the deal will be cold...and also due to the technical issues. I'm back to using my HH5 again for now

Not heard that many complaints with the HH5, it's most definitely preferable to this. The worst bit is BT won't admit it's their fault.

Sorry - only seeing your comment now. Yes, upgraded from HH5 and did notice a small difference (didn't need a range extender I had and one of the kids had less lag in CS:GO). Plus I had a WD Cloud plugged in to the HH5 and it seemed to crash or overload it and that isn't happening now

​Thanks for responding mate

Worst router ever. Please steer clear of this if you value your sanity. I really cannot what sort of people are still after this. Those that don't want Internet access?

Trusted Reviews included this in "Best Router 2016: Top 6 Best Wireless Routers for the home, office and gaming"
PC Advisor gave it 5 stars
why do you say it's so bad?
£59.99 is what BT have always quoted me to buy direct so not a great deal
