They cost a lot in the shops over here, but in other places they are quite cheap and comparible with other routers on the market. If bt wanted they could have put a vdsl modem in the hub4 and it wouldnt added too much cost to production.
They have too many adsl customers though to make it worth combining the two.
Cheers guys will they ever bring out an all in one device?
See the link in this post.
When, if ever, will it happen? Who knows?
yes the openreach modem is also capable of routing without wireless but is set to just run as a modem by default and of course bt lock you out of changing the settings, thats why they need unlocking to set it as a router and to see the line stats which you cant unless it is unliocked
