Best kept secret - BT Home Hubs work with PlusNet Accounts

Following Meldrew's lead on TBB. I have bought a BT Home Hub V2.0 Type A on eBay and can confirm that it connects and works perfectly on my PlusNet Account without having to hack the Firmware.
I believe that the PlusNet domains are recognised by Firmware levels 6.2.2.6 on the Home Hub V1.0 and all versions of the V1.5 and V2.0.
Not a bad Wireless N solution with built in DECT Base station for the £3-30 I paid incl p&p wot!  Smiley  Lips are sealed

Yes the basic hub works just a pity the VOIP side is locked to BT still. IF they had unlocked that it would be perfect.

Interesting - thanks for the info. Looks like I did the right thing a few months ago in picking one up for a similarly silly amount on ebay - still in the cellophane.  Smiley

Even better, you could put it on BT Broadband, and get a much more useful BB experience - and the VOIP would work too.
