TalkTalk joins forces with Amazon to help boost your internet speeds

Loading...

TalkTalk is hoping to make your broadband better via a new partnership with Amazon. That may sound like a very odd combination with Amazon famed for online shopping and not making the internet speeds in your home any faster.

However, the retailer does own a product that’s aimed solely at boosting broadband and TalkTalk is making it available to all those who sign up for its plans. The award-winning eero 6 and eero Pro 6 mesh routers will now be sent out to users as standard and they should make sure every inch of your home gets a strong connection.

If you weren’t already aware, a mesh network allows you to place additional boosters around your home which then improves the signal.

Along with that internet-beaming technology, eero also features a dedicated mobile app that enables easy set-up, as well as network management and fault diagnostics, giving customers more control and visibility of their home network performance.

There are also advanced parental controls so customers can easily block websites for family-safe browsing, streaming, and social media use.

If you own a bunch of smart devices then the built-in Zigbee technology makes sure everything works seamlessly without the need for a separate hub.

If you happen to own a mansion then you can add additional eero units which all connected to make sure every room is covered by a signal.

Speaking about the new offering, Tristia Harrison, CEO of TalkTalk, said: “We always strive to offer our customers the latest technology, superior speeds, and reliable performance at an affordable price. Coupled with our ambitious and accelerated full fibre roll out, our new relationship with Amazon’s eero is helping to make next generation home Wi-Fi a reality. As the first major ISP in the UK to offer eero to its customers we are excited to be at the forefront of making the UK’s leading fibre and Wi-Fi technology affordable for everyone.”

As part of a phased roll-out, eero 6 will be included as the standard mesh router for customers on TalkTalk’s Future Fibre 150 plan and eero Pro 6 for Future Fibre 500 customers.

Customers will also benefit from speeds up to 1Gb supported by eero Pro 6 when TalkTalk launches gigabit capable Future Fibre this Autumn.

For customers needing extra coverage they will be able to order extra eero devices to create a mesh network from £89 (RRP £139).

And from September, there will be a pay monthly option for extra eero devices – with up to two additional eeros for just £6 per month.
