Pending HH5 delivery - will it be a 'type B?'

Go to solution

I'm asking becuase I have the chance of a cheap, new 5B to buy now.

I assume - but can not be sure, that any new HH5's being delivered now will be type Bs.

Would that be a fair assumption?

 

Cheers - Simon.

My mate got Infinity last month and he got a new HH5 Type A

 

(He's on a Huawei cab for what its worth so a B would have been better lets be honest.)

the HH5b did not supersede the HH5a and both are issued to new and existing BT customers  from recent publicity there is a new HH6 due out later this year

True but the HH5 Type B is Broadcom based and works with G.INP, given the massive problems people have had with Type A devices over the last 12 months or so with the ECI / G.INP SNAFU it is very easy to see why a Tybe B is the prefereable choice.

There's always the option of well known auction sites. I picked up a HH5B in March '16 for £20.

the type B is far from perfect - from forum posts including your post about the wireless 5ghz

In which a user replied that the Type B works faultlessly.

 

No it isnt perfect but i'd rather have a Type B, the Type A is clearly being forced to run a technologiy it was never designed to use which is causing many problems for many users, it also doesnt play well with the PS4 and it loves to reboot every 14 days. Where as the Type B does work with G.INP, it does play well with the PS4 and it doesnt reboot every 14 days for no good reason.
