Is this better than the new BT Home Hub?

I have the new BT Home Hub - the one they advertise as having "our best ever wireless signal" and "detect and avoid wifi interference through our smart wifi technology". However, I already have an AirPort Extreme from a previous setup. Which is the better wifi base station?

    Hi I got the AirPort Extreme after I had issues with new BT Infinity 2 HomeHub version 3B, the latest version.I would have to reset the BT HomeHub most evenings and run speed tets despite have 33MG via LAN. With the Apple I get up to 33MG off my wireless on 2*-phones, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro.
    For me as someone who works a lot from home and who streams movies, the Extreme Airport Base Station is expensive but very much worth the smal investment and lets face it if you have nice Apple kit and a HD TV etc you will need this to keep regular consistent high speeds. My advice is buy it try it and if it doesn't work for you send it or take it back, whats to lose?
