I wonder how many rumours will actually end up 'not a reallity'....

I got signed up for this at the last minute, I hope its a major improvement on the HH5's for WiFi capabilities and that features actually work as they should.

The link that RayW found seems to now be giving a 404, looks like people noticed. Pretty much confirms that is the new design. If anyone managed to get any screen captures that would be great, as I am interested to see what the new look is.

EDIT
Found a cached version on Google web cache: https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:http://www.danieldesigner.co.uk/bt.html
Note the PDF file showing the interface, has a desktop and tablet interface as well as what looks like a possible mobile app.

My son has just signed up for BT Infinity and received a new BT Smart Hub for self install.
I have not seen this yet, but it's a great excuse to drop over for a nosey ...... ;-)

Somebody over at Digital Spy has posted a picture here.
 
They are also claiming that 'The official unveiling will be 20th June. The official launch date is 3rd July.'

Thank you for that link.  :)

There's not a lot to look at from the technology point of view.  :-X

I was able to order via the BT Options team.  I am 2/3s of the way through a 12 month Infinity 2 Unlimited contract (19/month with free weekend calls).  I was able to start a new contract from today for a further 12 months on Infinity 2 Unlimited at 17.50/month with free weekend calls.  Smarthub was 50 plus 7.95 delivery, and should be here on Tuesday.

"Picture of the new hub and the wifi boosters. The boosters are extra add ons and do not come free with the hub."

Does BT have access to your network with the new router?

Did they tell you anything about its technical specs/features?

They mentioned a few 'features' - think it has been reported elsewhere too that it has 7 internal antennas.  Apparently the main light on it changes colour depending on hub activity (not that I care about that!!) I did mention that there was nothing about it on the BT website yet - they said that help and support would be updated shortly, and the hub was currently only available to existing customers signing up for new contracts.
I'm away this week with work so won't get a chance to set it up until the weekend.  Sure someone else on here will have one by then ... but if there's anything you want to know about it let me know!
