BT is already investing heavily in its broadband with some homes now able to connect to the web at speeds of well over 900Mbps – that connection is around 15 times after than the UK average.
With new technology on the horizon, these speeds will only get quicker and it could be that BT wants to future proof its router in readiness for those blisteringly quick downloads.
There’s currently no official confirmation about this new Smart Hub 3 and certainly no release date has been established.
In response to the report, a BT spokesperson told ISPreview: “Smart Hub 2 is our most advanced home broadband router, providing fast speeds throughout the home via our new Full Fibre service, as well as integrated support for Complete Wi-Fi and Digital Voice. As the UK’s largest broadband provider, we continually review new, innovative ways to deliver the best in-home connectivity, and our customers will be amongst the first to hear when we launch something new.”
