UK internet service provider, TalkTalk is trialing a Wireless Extender device through its Labs subsidiary. The device extends the range of domestic Wi Fi routers to help overcome in building restrictions. The company plans to recruit 100 customers ideally who feel their current wireless range is sub standard and would be willing to perform some Pre Extender and Post Extender diagnostic comparisons using TalkTalk Labs Desktop.
The Wireless Extender can be positioned anywhere within the home with minimal setup as it plugs directly into a standard household electric socket. The best positioning for the device would be half-way between the Wi-Fi router and the computer the customer is using.
Trialists will be requested to install and run TalkTalk Labs Desktop on their PC for analysis purposes.
