UK ISP BT Unveils New HomeHub 5 VDSL2 Broadband Wireless Router

Wednesday, Jul 10th, 2013 (10:29 am) - Score 27,317

BT has today announced yet another new HomeHub 5 router that includes special support for their superfast broadband (FTTC) based BTInfinity packages by adding a built-in VDSL2 modem, the latest ultrafast Gigabit capable 802.11ac WiFi technology and 4 GigE (1000Mbps Ethernet) ports.

The new kit follows hot on the heels of BT’s recent Hub 4 launch in May 2013 (here), which is visually almost identical to the new Home Hub 5 except for the extra wizardry inside. In particular the newly integrated VDSL2 modem means that BTInfinity customers will no longer need a separate Openreach modem to connect via an FTTC line (a tactic that’s also just been adopted by EE).

David McDonald, GM of Consumer Broadband, said:

The new BT Home Hub 5 and the introduction of 300Mbps FTTP show how we are obsessed with providing an amazing broadband experience. BT has always had the edge here, but we are now leaping ahead of the competition.

Only BT offers a service that combines dual band, Wi-Fi, no traffic management, market leading network performance and Superfast BT Infinity. BT’s unlimited products really are “Totally Unlimited”, and BT will never do anything to slow these customers down. If customers want a great browsing, streaming, gaming and uploading experience there is only one choice.”

The new Hub 5 is expected to launch by the end of this year and will be included in all BTInfinity packages as standard. Existing Infinity customers will be able to re-contract to get a Home Hub 5 for free or will be able to buy one for a small fee. Hub 4 will continue to be offered as an inclusive part of the package alongside BT’s standard copper broadband packages.

We hope to have more details shortly..
