BT Home Hub 2.0
Advantages: Good deals online
Disadvantages: In my case very slow
I recently moved house and after a couple of months, decided that I needed to set up broadband at home.
I scoured the internet for a good deal and eventually went for this offering from BT, partly because broadband was free for the first 3 months.
To start with everything was brilliant.. reception, internet speed, and I also treated myself to Xbox Live to use along with the hub.
Everything was working well until a few weeks ago where I have had a lot of problems.
Whenever I go online on Xbox now, the games lag all the time, and quite often my broadband light on the Hub flashes orange (all 3 lights on the hub should be a steady blue colour).
I have called BT on a couple of occasions but they can't seem to work out where the problem is, could be a number of things, I live in a rural town, and if you do too I suggest you think twice before going ahead with this package.
For all I know it could be poor service in my area but I looked it up and it is normall between very good and excellent, so I am confused as to why it runs so slow.
Also online websites such as youtube and the like seem to take ages to view.
