TalkTalk has unveiled what it claims is its best ever router, packing the next generation Wi-Fi technology. The company says its Super Router is faster, smarter, optimised for TV and designed to provide further coverage throughout the home.
It will be included in all new TalkTalk Superpowered Fibre Broadband packages effective immediately and will also be available to all TalkTalk customers looking to upgrade to Fibre.
In independent testing, the Super Router’s Wi-Fi range was unbeaten against flagship routers from BT, Sky, Virgin Media and EE. It uses the latest, superfast 802.11acWi-Fi technology, which connects devices up to three times faster and offers a stronger, more stable signal. The Super Router is dual-band, so it sends a signal on two frequencies at the same time, which reduces the risk of dropped connections and interference. It also focuses the signal in the direction customers connect from to provide TalkTalk’s most reliable connection.
Tristia Harrison, Managing Director for Consumer at TalkTalk said: “We’re watching more online TV, connecting more devices and in the last six months alone TalkTalk homes have doubled the amount they download. Our new Super Router is our most advanced yet and it’s optimised to meet our customers’ ever increasing needs. Coupled with our Superpowered Fibre broadband, the Super Router allows busy families to do more online at the same time, safe in the knowledge that they have a super quick, reliable connection with an unbeatable range. “
