I'm upgrading to 150 Fibre and have received the router and waiting for BT to install the modem.
I thought it would be interesting to compare the WiFi signals from the new and the old routers.
Having been told the new device would be their most powerful WiFi router, I was very disappointed to find the opposite - the old router had a better signal level.

Thanks. I think it's generally accepted that wifi performance is a bit better on the Sagemcom than the HG633, it strange that you're getting different results. I'd just see how it goes when your Fibre 150 is installed

This is a noticeably poorer signal though, while I understand what Martin is saying, it doesn't explain why the signal is poorer all over the property, when compared with the previous router standing side by side.

All routers in the UK are limited to 100 mW, so the latest incarnations do not put out a stronger signal.
They do have better antenna arrangements but not the latest WiFi 6 specification.
