ISP "free" Routers


[link to this post]
 
I have just read the router review in Computer Shopper. The TalkTalk free router matched paid for ones, HH5 was quite good, Sky's was average but Plusnet and I quote

"Even if PN is one of the cheaper ISPs out there, that's not an excuse to supply customers with such a poor router".

Fortunately there are plenty of us whose requirements are minimal!

Is that the new Sagecom, or the old 582N?

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

I can't find the review on Computer Shopper's website. Just get bombarded by ads.

Thanks smile, but is that the article you meant to link to? No mention of either Plusnet router, and it's 15 months old.

Not suprising really, regardless of ISP i would never use their free (excl P &P) toy & hobby routers, my limited experience of free supplied by ISP routers /modems is enough never to go down that route again,IMO It's not part of the ISP's Ship to provide hardware FOC , fine if they want to sell top products by top brands , but i doubt they could be competive on prices
