BT Home Hub 2.0
Disadvantages: Expensive, unreliable
I have always had a large amount of contempt wound up into me when it comes to all things British Telecom, it has always had a reputation of being of poor quality, poor service and highly priced.
At home, my family use Talk Talk and a NetGear hub which is like a brick and has served us well. In my student accommodation however, being in a house with avidly downloading game freaks we needed fast broadband and the only one that could give us the fastest in our area of 4MB was *frown* BT.
4MB is what they said they would offer, we more or less got 2MB which caused a lot of disputes. Now onto their awful hub.
When setting up their service, they charged us £50 for this piece of junk, it conked out and refused to work after a month and all the little signs along the side turned red. We then waited another 2 weeks and paid another £50 to get sent another one which thankfully had some functionability and on receipt of sending back the old one, we got £50 back. I just saw on here its being sold for £11.98 on amazon. Thats about how much the hub is REALLY worth, perhaps less.
The design of the hub looks pretty cool and modern like it advertises in the adverts with blue lights to indicate what is working within the hub and what it is emitting but I found that every 2 weeks or so, you have to reset the hub for the wireless to function again as the wireless capabilities zero out and everyone is without internet in the house and we are banging furiously on the door of the person that has the hub in their room.
Another thing I hate about it is that it gives to person closest to it fast speeds and gives the rest of people in the house very poor speeds.
Summary: The most awful hub in the world
