Home Hub 5 (Type B)

I've heard recently that a "new" HH5 type B has been released by BT/OR - is anyone using it at present, and how does it differ from the current Type A unit?

Re: Home Hub 5 (Type B)

Re: Home Hub 5 (Type B)

It will have a different firmware so its possible its more stable. I dont use mine as a modem anyway so I cant tell if its more stable or not.

Re: Home Hub 5 (Type B)

My Type B was delivered today. Running some initial benchmarks, the B appears to be drawing slightly more power and the throughput appears to be far more stable, but it takes ever so slightly longer to boot. Apart from that, I'm seeing next to no speed difference when using it as a modem.
