    I have a BT homehub 2 and have just purchased an apple airport extreme for the same reason the BT homehub covers only 75% of my house. The airport extreme signal is a little weaker than the BT homehub I'm afraid to say. However, I believe you can link the apple hubs together wirelessly which you can not do with the BT homehub. So in my case, I need 2 airport extremes to get 100% coverage in my 3 bed average sized house.
