Router reuse

Our evening & weekend basic package costs £23.95 a month, and includes a wireless router. 

But do you really need a new router?

If you already have one, why not keep it, and get £1 a month off your bill? You'll save yourself some money and help the environment, by reducing waste.

You will need to know a little bit about setting your router up and changing its settings, as beyond the absolute basics our technical support staff cannot guarantee to help should you have problems setting up a router not provided by us. Given how many different makes there are, we're sure you can understand we can't possibly support them all! We will do our best, but it may be necessary to refer you to your router's manufacturer. We will only attempt to offer support to routers with wired connections - we can not troubleshoot thirdparty wireless connections at all.

Locked routers

Beware, however, that if your router was provided by another Internet Service Provider (ISP), it may be "locked" to their service and unusable with any other provider's service.

Routers from the following ISPs are most likely locked:

  • Sky
  • BT
  • TalkTalk
  • Orange
  • O2 Be Unlimited
  • Plus Net

Routers we supply are not locked in any way, and may be freely used with any provider's services.
