      Sky Q with BT

      I have switched my broadband from Sky to BT. Everything works except the wifi hotspot effects, is there any way to configure it or do I have to install separate wifi repeater(s)?

      Thanks

      Separate repeaters I'm afraid. The SkyQ boxes will broadcast their own WiFi signals so the Silver and Mini can connect to each other, but they don't (AFAIK) act as hotspots for other ISPs.

      I'm in the same boat - just had an Infinity 4 connection put in (took three months - that's another subject!), but we're in a coach-house and the floors are concrete, and SmartHub is downstairs in hallway...signal pretty poor. I'll be investing in a BT Whole Home WiFi setup in due course - just getting used to having more bandwidth (had it a week - from barely 7mbit to 300mbit...takes some getting used to!).

      Wow. If you have 300mbs then you have to have wifi to use it. In my case I get around 32 but the 4g is about 50 so when my iPhone does not find wifi it does not matter.
