{{hub.name}}
No of antennas No of antennas

Why is it better to have seven antennas?

The antennas deliver your wi-fi signal.

With seven antennas on the job, and clever circuitry to power and coordinate their activity, the BT Smart Hub can give you better connections in more places around the home.

Wi-fi bands Wi-fi bands

Why is dual band better?

Dual-band hubs have a big advantage over their single-band rivals.

With two networks on two different frequencies, you can keep more devices connected, with better speed and reach.

Wi-fi standard Wi-fi standard

Why is next-generation better?

Every few years, technologists release a new set of wi-fi standards to help manufacturers increase speed and improve reliability.

It’s always best to have a hub that conforms to the very latest standards.

2.4 GHz wi-fi band 2.4 GHz wi-fi band

What’s so great about 2.4GHz wi-fi?

The BT Smart Hub automatically selects the best wi-fi for each connected device.

The 2.4GHz band is better at penetrating walls, and that’s what your hub will use if the device is far away.

5 GHz wi-fi band 5 GHz wi-fi band

What’s so great about 5GHz wi-fi?

The BT Smart Hub automatically selects the best wi-fi for each connected device.

The 5GHz band gives a fast connection over short distances, and that’s what your hub will use if the device is close by.

Connections Connections

Why is it better to have more connectors?

As well as using wi-fi you can use cables to connect devices to your hub. The more connectors your hub has, the more options you have in setting up your home network.

For example, you might want to use cables for devices that need a permanent connection (like set-top boxes and games consoles), and leave the wi-fi free for tablets, laptops and phones.

Advanced filters Advanced filters

What’s so great about advanced filters

Thanks to its clever filters, the BT Smart Hub does a great job of reducing interference. By reducing possible interference, the BT Smart Hub helps to give you a fast connection with as few “drop-outs” as possible.

USB Ports USB Ports

Why is it better to have a USB port?

You might already be using USB ports on your computer to connect like printers or USB storage drives.

With the BT Smart Hub, anyone who’s using your wi-fi network will be able to share a printer or USB drive that’s plugged into your BT Smart Hub’s USB port.

On/off lights control On/off lights control

Why is it better to have lights you can control?

The BT Smart Hub’s front panel illuminates gently to let you know how it’s performing. But sometimes you don’t need to know, so you can simply turn off the lights and let the hub get on with its work.

Removable password card Removable password card

What’s so great about a removable password card?

No more stumbling around to find your hub’s password. The BT Smart Hub has a card with the password printed on. You can take this card and keep it handy so your guests can connect to your hub quickly and easily.

BT Smart Scan BT Smart Scan

What’s so great about BT Smart Scan?

Pieces of advanced tech, like computers and home hubs, can slow down after a while. So the BT Smart Hub helps you out by scanning for problems like these.

If it finds something wrong, it will wait for a quiet moment and reboot itself.

Supersize your wi-fi

If your home has lots of rooms on lots of floors, you can get better wi-fi in more places by adding a BT Mini Hub.

Simply place your BT Mini Hub in an area where your wi-fi signals are weak. The BT Mini Hub will then deliver fast, reliable internet connections in those hard-to-reach places.
