BT has redesigned its wireless broadband router to make it the firm's "most future-proofed hub yet".

According to a release from BT, the new Home Hub allows for technical upgrades to be delivered quicker and easier than before.

The redesign has also resulted in a router that it is easier to set up, the firm says, and allows for multiple devices - including desktop computers, games consoles and BT Vision - to be installed through either a cable or with no wires.

It is also smaller and sleeker than its existing router and comes pre-installed with a firewall to keep hackers out.

New subscribers to BT's Option 3 and Option 2 will receive the Hub for free when ordered online, while those on Option 1 must pay an extra £30.

The imminent launch of the new Home Hub comes after reports have surfaced alleging that the existing hub contains bugs which enable hackers to get around the device's password authentication system and take control of the router.
