What are the best options for non-BT / third party routers?

I am considering buying a third party router to replace the BT Smart Hub v.2

I currently have BT's Fibre 100 plan and i live in a 3-storey townhouse.

Reasons for changing router:
- Never been a fan of BT's routers
- I hope to improve overall wireless performance across my home
- I like the design, features, and simplicity of alternatives like Google's WIFI router + others

Questions:
1. Is making this change fairly straight forward providing I pick a router that is compatible with BT Fibre broadband?
2. Which third-party routers would you recommend which are a better spec or highly rated?

Many thanks

Matt

Then your choice is very limited. The Asus DSL AC 88U is G.Fast compatible.

How does the Asus compare to smart hub 2 - specs and real-life reported usage?
