    Wouldn't put any Huawei kit in my house
    Would you be happy if American owned Netgear "rang home"? Well they do! Netgear equipment sends back "anonymous diagnostic data" back home and if you try to block it via firewall the darn equipment stops working!!

    Would this be an improvement on the virgin hub 3 (I have terrible range issues) also would I have to keep the virgin hub plugged in and for this to work?
    Yes, you keep the hub and put it into modem mode, then add a router... I find WiFi far more stable this way with vermin mediocre!
    Plus you get to set your own DNS which VM appear to have "forgotten" (edited)

    Replying to

    Usually more features. But primarily they fix things quickly and provide updates for longer. Many manufacturers of things like wireless routers they stop making updates for them after 1-3 years. Like my BT whole home WiFi discs that haven't had an update now since 2019 and it has a bug that people have moaned about but it's now no longer supported. OpenWRT means longer support and security fixes etc. But yeah also sometimes more features. Like QoS or parental controls etc that some devices don't have.

    These are good but worth paying a bit extra for the WiFi 6 version (AX3) as you can get faster speeds and future-proofing. The problem with all of these seems to be the range though (even with those antennae), at least you can buy them cheap to fill any gaps in coverage.

    Replying to

    The wifi 6 one has, so this one probably has too, though can't be sure.

    Don’t forget you will still need a modem for this it’s not built in.
    Yes, that’s true though many homes have separate boxes like Virgin (unlucky ) or fibre modems. DSL household numbers are falling, but those that do can set existing hardware to modem-only mode and hook these up.

    Standard price for this but as the consensus has said, I'd be more tempted to spend the extra £10 and get the dual-core Wi-Fi 6 variant (AX3/AX3000) to future proof yourself.
    Very few people will actually benefit from WiFi 6 (now and in the near future), and tests on some WiFi 6 routers have shown worse latency and not a great increase in speeds across the network.

    No point in spending an extra £10 for a feature that really isn't needed by most of us.

    Stupid question but I don't suppose this accepts a SIM card, does it? I currently have a Huawei B525 4G router but wouldn't mind upgrading, or could I use this in conjunction with it somehow?
    No, you need a dedicated 4 or 5g model.

    Good device easy setup, brilliant signal , I use it as an access point though. No issues had it a few months. Price is silly cheap if this was netgear branded , easy £50+. But since US is trying to bully Huwawei, its forced their prices down.

    Replying to

    Exactly I would encourage everyone to buy more Huwawei products and not follow Gov. Propaganda, lies & US corporate bullying. (edited)

    Again no power output numbers quoted, but an older design so probably gimped so much the 5Ghz band doesn't actually work more than a few feet away from it.

    The useless Ofcom who engineers claim don't have a clue what they are doing finally upped the power on the higher frequency bands but none of the companies are prepared to quote the power outputs of their products.

    Better buying these direct from China where 100mW output on all channels is the norm, and the range is fantastic, providing you can navigate the menu in Chinese (browser translate). Makes it more difficult to hack too!
    the Ui on these is english./ multi language (edited)

    Would it be worth to plugin in together with the BT hub for better coverage in my flat?
