This may help you with regards to your question.

With the BT Smart Hub 2 as already stated, you can not split to 2.4GHz or 5GHz bands

You state this:-

The SH2 supports Complete Wi-Fi, Dect, Digital Voice & G.fast. The SH1 doesn't.

But what in practice does it give me?

What is difference between Wi- fi I get & complete Wi Fi?

What is "Digital Voice"?

Re: Smart Hub 2 /Hub 6

Some devices don't like the 2 bands having the same SSID, some people like to be able to force a device to connect to one band or the other.

Complete WiFi are the add on black WiFi discs to give extra coverage. Digital voice is BT's version of VoIP.
