I doubt if any of your wireless devices would cope with the higher speed anyway. To get the most out of FTTP 900, use Ethernet connected devices.

Then, provided you do not use BT Digital voice, buy your own third party router with WiFi 6, or buy a WiFi 6 Wireless Access point and plug it into the Smart Hub 2. The Netgear WAX610 is one example. https://www.netgear.com/support/product/wax610.aspx

There are probably other cheaper devices.

Hi @Ben36551 

The Smart Hub is always going to be a mass market product. If you want bells and whistles you can always add on WiFi 6.

Re: Smart hub 3

Even on cable with ps5 and series x or wifi 6 you are not going to ever get the full bandwidth as they limit it to about 250mbps.

Wifi 5 on my pixel and laptop i average 450 - 550 mbps which is more than enough.

If i need the full bandwidth (also dependant on source you are downloading from) i use my main workstation.

Things can change, but the last (very informed) rumour was that the new Smart Hub 3 would be made available on EE, not BT as part of the move to launch it as the new consumer focussed brand.
