Default BT Broadband: why now two boxes?

Sister had her BT broadband "upgraded", Where previously she had one BT
Home Hub 2, she now has two boxes: a BT Home Hub 3 AND a Huawei HG612
EchoLife

What's the purpose of having 2 boxes, or why the additional Huawei?

Sorry: probably a fairly dumb question.

TIA

Presumably she's on a fibre product now? That's just the way they
install it, the huawei modem is VDSL, the homehub is the router.
