TalkTalk launches new router promising its best ever wi-fi signal

Monday, May 21st 2018 by Phil Wilkinson-Jones

TalkTalk has launched a new router promising customers its “fastest, strongest and most reliable” wi-fi signal ever.

The new TalkTalk Wi-Fi Hub offers twice the speed of its predecessor, the TalkTalk Super Router, has an extended reach and is better equipped to deal with multiple devices connecting at the same time.

It also boasts something called beamforming technology, which allows the router to automatically adjust signal levels to prioritise the devices that need it most. TalkTalk says up to 50 devices can connect to wi-fi at the same time without compromising connection quality.

Getting set up should be simple as the router has been designed to fit through most letterboxes so you won’t have to wait in for delivery.

It’s then just a case of plugging in the router and switching it on. You won’t even have to enter a password to connect your devices to wi-fi – just push the WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Set-up) button on the Wi-Fi Hub and you’re good to go.

There are also four Gigabit Ethernet ports on the router for wired connections, for those who want faster speeds and more reliability than is possible over wi-fi.

'Most sophisticated'

Phil Amy, director of product at TalkTalk, comments: “We’ve developed our most sophisticated router ever, packed with the latest technology so customers can enjoy even stronger connectivity in more corners of the home and on more devices.

“Developed with customer feedback, everything from its attractive design, to the ease of set up and speed, means this Wi-Fi Hub is our fastest, strongest and most reliable router yet.”

The new router is available as standard for new customers signing up to TalkTalk’s Faster Fibre Broadband plan and from £30 for new Fast Broadband and existing TalkTalk customers.

Optimised specifically for the TalkTalk network, it is compatible with all of the provider’s broadband services.

Earlier this year, TalkTalk added a new call-blocking feature called CallSafe to its landline calling plans.

The service automatically screens incoming calls, putting regularly-dialled numbers such as friends and family straight through and blocking those already on its list of unwanted callers.

Callers it doesn’t recognise are asked to record a short introduction then placed on hold. When you pick up the phone you’ll be played the message then given the choice to answer, ignore or block the call.
