Sky launches new Sky Hub wireless router for ADSL and fibre broadband

Sky has today announced the launch of the new Sky Hub wireless router, a snazzy-looking white cuboid that looks more like a DAB radio than a wireless router.

Designed to work with both Sky’s ADSL and fibre-based broadband services, the Sky Hub will scan automatically for the least congested WiFi channel and promises better signal strength around the home.

The new Sky Hub is a WiFi N router (up to 144Mbps) with four Ethernet ports (up to 100Mbps) on the side.

While it’s a little disappointing to not see WiFi AC and 1Gbps connections on the new Sky Hub, the fact is that Sky customer probably won’t be needing these for a good while yet.

And their inclusion would no doubt drive up the price of the Sky Hub; existing customers will need to shell out £41.18 (£39 plus £2.18 for postage) to upgrade while new customers joining form the 18th of October onwards will get the Sky Hub included free.

The price for the Sky Hub itself will climb up to £69 in January next year, so if you’re a Sky customer and you like the look of the Sky Hub, we’d advise to you snap one up sooner rather than later.
