BT Home Hub 2.0
Advantages: Looks good
Disadvantages: Occasionally loses connection
In today's age, internet connection and the speed of it is something that can be vitally important to anyone, whether you love to just sit and chill of an evening or if you are using it for work on a regular basis. The internet has made everyones life so much easier, so it can be frustrating when your wireless connection goes down. I used to use Virgin Media, but after numerous issues and spending hours on a call centre line we decided to get the BT homehub (if only because i love My Family and the adverts have Nick in), but on the whole, I have been very happy with the hub experience.
The appearance of the hub is very nice, and will certainly add something to your home or study, or wherever it is placed actually. It is quite sleek and nicely curved, which makes it look nice, and is not too big or unsightly meaning that you can look at it without having to hide it away with all your other computer bits that you do not want people to see!
It is extremely easy to set up. I simply turned the router on and booted up my laptop. I then searched for free wireless networks and my Homehub appeared. It asked me for a password, which was located on the back of the product, and once I had typed it in, i was online within just a few seconds - it really was that easy! I now can travel around and bring my laptop home and it finds the internet automatically, so do not worry about putting the password in every single time and how that would be a pain and inconvenience you, as it is not something that has to occur.
Occasionally it does lose connection, but i think this problem is based with BT and not my product. When this happens it is simply a matter of turning it off and turning it back on, which takes a small while, but fixes most problems.
The contact service has also been a lot easier than with rival companies, in my experience, and as this is something which comes with the router, albeit subconciously, i thought that it was worth mentioning and it is nice to know that if you do have issues that they will not be too hard to fix as you can quite easily get hold of somebody.
The homehub comes with a variety of packages through BT which can include other products which they offer. To check these out i recommend that you go and check their website and find a package which is best for you.
Certainly as good, if not better, than the products offered by rival companies.
Summary: Good enough!
