Using Home Hub 4 with TalkTalk after contract

Hi all,

 

Sorry if this is an FAQ, couldn't find clarification elsewhere on the forum. Basically I've relocated to my parents' home after living away for work for a while. My housemates and I were in a contract with BT for over a year at my old place, but I now wish to use the supplied Home Hub 4 on my parents' TalkTalk connection; it's simply a better piece of kit than TalkTalk's given router. Will I be able to do this without the BT police knocking on my door or dead contracts being revived etc? Many thanks in advance

As far as I am aware the software on the Homehub is locked in such away that you can not use the Homehub 4 on another ISP's network.

Well that's weird, I tried using the equipment with the TalkTalk connection (just to test) a few days ago and it seemed to work fine. Was able to browse the internet and using gaming devices online without any problem?

After 12 months with BT any supplied equipment is yours to use or abuse as you wish, so if it works use it. How would BT know what you were doing with it anyway, even if they had police to knock on your door or the power to revive an expired contract unilaterally?

If you recieved the router from bt when you subscribed to bt broadband, then no.

 

But if you bought the router seperatley then yes.

 

Hope this Helps

if you have bought the hub from Bt and it is a HH4r then that is unlocked and will work with any ISP otherwise the hubs are locked to BT
