BT is now offering its new Home Hub 5 free of charge to all new customers taking up its Infinity package.
The communications provider only launched the Home Hub 4 in the summer, but has now followed it up with the Home Hub 5, which is "supercharged" for BT Infinity and adds extra features to its predecessor's already-extensive repertoire.
As well as the smart dual-band technology and Smart Setup function included in the Home Hub 4, the newer model adds superfast 802.11ac Wi-Fi and 4 GigE ports, so customers can fully exploit the fibre service.
Furthermore, the Home Hub 5 has an integrated VDSL modem so customers no longer need to have two boxes in their home to utilise the service, which is currently required with the HomeHub 4.
The Home Hub 5 is now available as standard with all Infinity packages, at no extra cost, while the Home Hub 4 will be offered for free to customers taking BT's ADSL broadband services. Existing Infinity customers can recontract to get a Home Hub 5 for free or are able to buy one for a small fee.
Customers wanting to take advantage of the new router could opt for the BT Infinity Unlimited Broadband and Calls option, which offers up to 76 Mb download speeds, totally unlimited usage, inclusive weekend calls and the Home Hub 5, with free BT Net Protect Plus security.
Those signing up online on an 18-month contract pay £20 per month for the first three months, rising to £26 thereafter, plus line rental which starts at £11.75 if they pay 12 months in advance, or £15.45 on a monthly basis.
For a limited time only, people signing up online for BT's Infinity packages also receive a £75 Sainsbury's gift card to spend online or at their local store.
