The best BT VPN for BT Broadband customers with BT Smart Hub.
Are you a BT broadband customer? Customers using BT Smart Hub or other BT routers are increasingly finding themselves blocked from popular websites and subject to anti-privacy letters and throttling. The solution is a BT VPN Router from Liberty Shield.
What is the BT Smart Hub?
Launched in 2017, the redesigned BT Smart Hub shares the vertical form factor of its predecessors. Existing BT Broadband customers can now get their hands on a brand new router if they want as a paid upgrade (new customers obviously get it as standard).
It is available to all BT Broadband customers for free, the device supports BT Broadband’s maximum download speed. The BT Smart Hub isn’t just a regular router though, with the UK’s most powerful wi-fi signal, the new BT Smart Hub uses the latest technology to help you enjoy wi-fi in more places in your home. The dual-band Smart Hub has seven antennas that give a bigger wireless range – more than any router from a major UK broadband provider. The latest AC wi-fi technology means you can use more than one device – be it a phone, laptop or tablet – on a fast connection simultaneously.
BT Broadband prides itself on being a responsible ISP and will block websites and servers when ordered to do so by the Courts. As BT Broadband customers, you may have the right to apply to the High Court to vary or discharge the Court Orders below if you are affected by the blocks which have been imposed.
Unblock BT Smart Hub Blocked Websites with VPN
Do you ever get this message when loading websites with BT Broadband on the BT Smart Hub or other routers? This is because as a UK ISP they are bound by various legal requirements to help prevent copyright infringement. Whilst Liberty Shield would never condone illegal piracy or accessing copyright videos, music etc; we believe it is your right to use the internet in an unfiltered form and make a personal decision on what content you wish to access. Please click here for a list of websites commonly blocked by UK ISPs, both directly and indirectly.
Our UK VPN will unblock all content that BT Broadband have blocked, you do not need to select one of our other countries for your VPN – UK VPN will work just fine!
With our BT VPN Router product you will be able to connect all your devices to the UK VPN and bypass any ISP blocks. Adding a VPN to your device is as simple as connecting your Zgemma, MAG Box, Droid Box, FireStick, FireTV, Roku, Apple TV, Xbox, PlayStation, Smart TV, PC, Mac, iPhone, Android or iPad to the WiFi zone created by the VPN Router; (or by connecting via ethernet cable to a LAN port on the VPN Router).
Please note that when VPN encryption is added to your network you will never get the same speed as you do directly with your ISP; all sorts of routing factors apply with VPN speed but with our software VPN you can expect roughly 80-100mbps and with the VPN Router 20-30mbps.
So how do I get a BT VPN for my BT Smart Hub?
- Get a VPN for the country of your choice, our UK VPN does not block anything.
- If you just want to use services such as Kodi and The Pirate Bay on your PC, Mac or iPad. Then you can get a VPN (FREE for 48 Hours) from Liberty Shield from only £6.99 per month.
- Prefer to use Kodi, IPTV and other services on supported media streaming devices like Zgemma, MAG Box, Droid Box, Engima, Smart IPTV, FireTV etc? You’ll need a VPN Router, available for only £12.99 with Worldwide Shipping.

Of course BT Broadband isn’t the only UK ISP now obliged to log usage of services such as Kodi, P2P, IPTV and The Pirate Bay. Other British ISPs including TalkTalk, Virgin and Sky are also blocking content and sending out letters when they detect that their connection has been used to pirate TV shows through services such as Kodi, IPTV and The Pirate Bay.
