New Hub 2 Router

Hello All,

I’ve been with Plusnet for over 15 years and had a selection of routers and modems.  My last, and current, equipment is an old Plusnet 2704N router plugged into an Openreach modem both supplied by Plusnet about 6 years ago.  On renewing my broadband plus contract with Plusnet I was sent a Hub 2.  My question is, does this Hub 2 replace BOTH parts of my equipment I.e. the router and the modem?  I don’t want to make any changes until I’m sure what to do.

Furthrrmore, it]s this Hub 2 a more efficient and powerful replacement for what I have currently installed?

Many thanks,

Tiggs

@Tiggs  Welcome to the forum.

Yes it replaces both boxes and yes it will give you far better WiFi performance.

Being a single unit with more efficient components it will also use less electricity.

Thank you very much for your reply and help.  I’ll get on with the installation of the new hub this afternoon.

@Tiggs 

I don't know the 2704N but assuming it's the HubZero on the following link.

https://www.plus.net/help/broadband/router-information/

 

Since then PlusNet have the HubOne which is a re-branded BT HH5

After this BT had the HH6 (sometimes known as the SmartHub1)

PlusNet now have the HubTwo which is basicalled a re-branded BT SmartHub2

 

So it's better - many PlusNet customers actually bought a BT HH6 because the WiFi was better than the HubOne.
