New WiFi Hub Specs

2: Seeker


Signed up for Fibre today, going live at the start of September.

Does anyone have specs for the new router that's coming? This is the black/red rectangular box version.

When you say you signed up for Fibre, it really depends on which "Fibre".  If it's FTTP then you'll get the router detailed on this page along with a separate Fibre Optic modem.


If you are on Superfast 1 or 2 then you may get that same router (doesn't need the external modem though), but it's more likely you'll get the utterly horrendous Huawei HHG2500.


*This seems to be a change from Vodafone's planned router road map, which was supposed to have been based on an upcoming TP-Link Mesh enabled router!

That’s great, thanks for the info. I signed up today for Superfast, on the basis gigafast is due to come online for me (according to the Vodafone sales rep) within a couple of months. 


The blurb I read on the website said the newer routers were being issued for new superfast connections. If I get the old HHG2500 I’ll most definitely be cancelling!
