TalkTalk to trial wireless broadband signal booster
The company is looking for customers to test its new Wireless Extender.TalkTalk has unveiled plans to trial a new device designed to extend wireless broadband coverage.
The broadband bundle provider's TalkTalk Labs division announced the project and is looking to recruit 100 customers who feel their current Wi-Fi range is substandard to test the gadget, known as the Wireless Extender.
According to the company, the product can be placed anywhere in the home and requires little effort to set up, as it plugs into any standard electric socket.
However, TalkTalk Labs explained the best location for the device is halfway between the router and the PC that is struggling to pick up Wi-Fi signal.
Subscribers who are chosen to take part in the trial will be allowed to keep the Wireless Extender once the project is complete, provided they give good-quality feedback.
Some 4.25 million people were signed up to receive broadband and calls from TalkTalk at the end of September 2010, the company revealed in its latest financial results publication.
