BT has just announced the launch of a big new update with some customers getting vital new security features for free.
This important upgrade, which is available on BT’s Smart Hub 2, includes refreshed Wi-Fi controls with users now able to manage their family’s screen time by simply pausing the internet at home or scheduling which devices can be online at certain times.
BT says that up to 15 different gadgets can be controlled via this update with customers able to manage their homes via a simple touch of a button on the MyBT app.
For devices which may need different rules for younger kids or teenagers, there’s also an option to set up groups and manage multiple screen time rules all at once.
Speaking about the update, Pete Oliver, Managing Director, marketing, BT’s Consumer Division, said: “At BT, we are dedicated to keeping families connected and there’s so much entertainment and education available to us, but it’s also so important to have time away from screens.
“With our new Wi-Fi Controls, we’re helping families create a healthy relationship with technology, so families can decide when they want to be offline so they can focus on homework or enjoy quality time together.”
Customers eligible to use Wi-Fi Controls will need the latest version of the MyBT app and a Smart Hub 2 updated with the latest firmware.
Along with this free update, BT has also launched some new deals for those joining the provider which not only offer cheaper prices but also an enticing free gift.
Those signing up to Superfast speeds can currently get a year’s free access to Amazon Prime (worth over £90), plus a cheaper monthly price for the internet connection with prices starting from £27.99 per month.
That cost is for Fibre Essential which includes average speeds of around 35Mbps.
If you want something faster there’s also an offer on Superfast Fibre which now costs £32.99 per month and brings average speeds of around 50Mbps to your home.
It’s worth noting that these offers are for new customers and also include BT’s Stay Fast Guarantee – which means you’ll get the speeds promised or your £20 back
