Internet service provider BT has unveiled its new HomeHub 3 router, which is set to be launched at the end of this month.
The next-generation wireless broadband router will be included with Total Broadband and Infinity fibre broadband deals from February 28th 2011.
It is designed to support both ADSL and fibre-to-the-cabinet broadband services, with ports included for both connection options.
While new customers will receive the router for free, existing BT broadband package subscribers will face a one-off £46 fee to receive a HomeHub 3.
The device is approximately half the size of the current model, the HomeHub 2, and automatically selects the most-appropriate Wi-Fi channel on behalf of the user.
BT is currently investing £2.5 billion upgrading its national broadband infrastructure, enabling businesses and households across the UK to take advantage of its new Infinity fibre broadband deals.
