BT Home Hub 3 promises interference-free Wi-Fi

BT intros Home Hub 3 with anti-interference Wi-Fi

BT on Friday added a new Wi-Fi router of its own designed to thrive in a wireless-heavy environment. Similar to some more advanced independent routers, the Home Hub 3 has its own intelligent channel selection to avoid interference. The approach minimizes the likelihood of a baby monitor or other 2.4GHz device slowing down or stopping the Internet connection.

Its technique is dynamic and will re-scan if it detects new interference in the area.

The British ISP's new router is about half the size of the Home Hub 2 it replaces but still has the expansion of a usual router. It can talk directly to ADSL or fiber modems and has four Ethernet ports for wired clients, the fourth of which runs at gigabit speeds to handle very large or frequent transfers. A USB port can share devices across the network.

BT will start handing out the Home Hub 3 to new customers on February 28, but existing customers can trade up for 46 ($74). [via Pocket-lint]
