you no longer need the Openreach modem connect the smart hub directly in the socket the modem was connected too as shown in the leaflet supplied with the hub
Really? I thought the modem was what gave us the faster speeds promised with Infinity 2. I will run speed test using my HH5 and OPenreach modem and then with Smart Hub and report back
You can do away with the Openreach modem.
The Smart Hub won't connect to the Openreach Modem and the HH5 doesn't need to connect to the Openreach modem which was the purpose of bringing out the integrated modem/router in these units.
Okay, sorry to be sceptical (must be the current political environment). Connected everything up and tests show comparable speeds without the Openworld modem. I now have two holes in the wall where the modem was fixed, but at least I now have a spare socket outlet!
Odd that BT actually installed the modem when i upgraded to infinity 2 with HH5 and a pity that the modem is not needed is not clear in the Smarthub user guide,
Its extremely simple. You don't need the modem. Remove the cable from the modem that goes into the phone socket and plug it into the Broadband/DSL socket on the HUB6. The red cable is not required.
