Re: Why can't BT fix the Smart Hub?

I've had 4 Smart Hubs that have died with the green light, unresponsive to even a factory reset. I refuse to plug in the fifth until the firmware is fixed.

I'm disappointed the other thread has been locked down in what seems like an effort to silence us. The comments in the final post don't acknowledge the problems.

How can sending 5 Smart Hubs out to one customer not raise questions at BT? Either there is something wrong with the product or the customer is not using it appropriately.

The reason for locking the thread was that it was attracting all sorts of issues which may/did have had nothing to do with the hub, and on threads such as those it is near impossible to try and ask diagnostics questions to see where the issue is.  Some poster just refused to answer some basic questions because they felt the issue was hub related as opposed to something else.

 

By locking the thread it should encourage poster to create new threads about their specific problem, and by doing so it should lead to a better diagnosis of their problem and if it is hub related this will highlight the specific problem with the hub rather than it all becoming lost in the mire of the locked thread.

 

Contrary to what may have been posted, the moderators do feed back problems that have been posted about the hub and by doing the above it might help resolve some of the issues that some people have found with their hub.

Re: Why can't BT fix the Smart Hub?

So to this date have BT acknowledged the Green Light of Death?

This forum is full off people with unresponsive bricked Hubs.

The closing statement in the locked thread certainly didn't acknowledge it.

@gg30340

That's a helpful post, if I may say so.

But could I also suggest - because I think you have the ear of the moderators - that it would be helpful too, and relatively painless, if the mods would occasionally post general responses saying that they're aware of concerns about the HH6 and have been feeding issues back to the Hub Team. It seems to me that, if they only did that, it would make people feel less concerned (and, in some cases, angry) about apparently being ignored.

Re: Why can't BT fix the Smart Hub?

Hi @Hazy1980. This was acknowledged as far back as Aug-2016 by @PaddyB in message 50 of Green light on new Smart Hub.

 

 

Personally I think they're taking too long to fix the issues, and not being as open and transparent as they might be, but the problems are not being completely ignored.

 

Regards

I know that the moderators have been feeding back the issues that are getting highlighted on the forum however I don't think that is an unreasonable request you have made. We'll see what happens.

Re: Why can't BT fix the Smart Hub?

Hi Guys,

 

The reason we locked the last thread was that it became impossible to decipher an issue which appeared to be related to the Smart hub or in fact a broadband issue.  We want to encourage customers to create their own threads so that the wider community can try and help resolve the issue or where this isn't possible the moderators will be on hand to offer support.

 

I have no further information to post around the current firmware.  We have been, and continue to work with the hub team in feeding back comments and working with them to understand the issues.  Since the last firmware was released the number of customers complaining on the forum has dropped significantly which indicates that the current firmware is working for many customers.

 

Broadband faults can be complex in nature and what may look like a faulty hub or firmware can in fact be a line or network issue.  This is why we are encouraging customers who are having problems to post about it. 

 

The moderators are monitoring all discussions around the Smart hub and will be standing by to offer support.  We will look at the network side of things thoroughly from our end and once that is ruled out, we have a mechanism to report these issues directly to our hub team for further investigation.

 

The green light issue was highlighted some months back but we believe this was fixed in an earlier firmware release.  I am very sorry that some of you are experiencing this.  We would be very keen on getting your details so that we can fully investigate.

 

Can I ask that @MisterPC@DaveD and @Hazy1980, please send me an email.  Just click on my username, SeanD, and you will find the 'mods contact link', under the 'about me' section of my profile.  Once we have your details we will get the ball moving on fixing the problem.

 

Cheers

Sean

I was also a trialist on HH6 and am still using it without any wifi problems - so not all HH6 have wifi problems
