The Which? article referenced in that BBC report is here:

I'm on BT, so looks like I'm OK....

BT Group told Which? that older routers still receive security patches if problems are found...

BT Smart Hub 2 users are complaining of connection issues between their wifi-enabled devices.

The telecom giant's router operates using two different wireless frequencies: 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz.

Users are complaining that any devices not linked to the same frequency, such as a phone and a speaker, are refusing to communicate with each other.

BT is offering firmware updates to those affected.
