TalkTalk to offer ‘Super Router’ with every broadband deal

Monday, January 18th 2016 by Hannah Langston

TalkTalk customers will now receive the latest wi-fi router when they purchase a broadband package.

The dual-band Super Router creates two wireless networks instead of one, reducing the risk of dropped connections and interference.

It also uses ‘beamforming’ technology that focuses its signal in the direction of whatever device is connecting to it.

Independent testing by Which? found that TalkTalk’s Super Router provided speeds that exceeded that of BT, Virgin Media and Sky’s equivalent routers. The Super Router was found to have the strongest signal and fastest average speed in more test cases than any of the other routers across a variety of property types and Wi-Fi types, according to testing company Testronics.

The provider is now offering the Super Router to all of its broadband customers, having previously extended the service to non-fibre customers back in May 2015.

This means new customers taking TalkTalk’s SimplyBroadband, Essentials TV or Plus TV packages, as well as existing customers who upgrade to Superfast Fibre broadband, can receive the router free of charge.

£50 Love2Shop voucher

Those looking to purchase a standard broadband package from TalkTalk can also receive a £50 Love2Shop voucher from now until 28 January.

This voucher offer is exclusive to new customers who order online, switch from BT, Sky or Plusnet and can keep their existing landline number. Customers switching to fibre broadband are not eligible.

TalkTalk is still running its January sale offers which include free fibre broadband and anytime calls for 12 months – a package that usually costs £17.50 per month.

Another broadband deal is the unlimited SimplyBroadband package, which is free for the full 18 months of the contract (subject to £17.70 a month line rental).

Simply Broadband is TalkTalk’s basic broadband offering, providing unlimited access to speeds of up to 17Mb.

TalkTalk has put out a range of offers since October’s cyber attack, where customers bank account details and personal data was accessed by hackers. About 4% of the company’s 4 million customers are believed to have been affected.

Following the attack, TalkTalk refused to let people terminate contracts without incurring charges, and instead offered them a free upgrade.
