Almost quadrupled the average speed of the Plusnet router :datass:

I’ve been considering doing this too, but every time I look into it, I read that certain kits are not compatible with the Plusnet routers, so I get cold feet. What have you invested in? (And which router do you have?)

I have the Amazon Eero 3 packThis one, but got it at half price during Black Friday.

I still have the standard Plusnet router (not sure which model but think it's the currently provided one) which despite being not fully compatible seems to work perfectly fine without changing any settings or general faffing about, the only caveat being that some advanced features like blocking certain devices, limiting access times and content blocking don't work (currenntly) but as I don't need any of that I'm fairly happy with it.

Cheers. I actually had a kit (TPLink, I think) in my Amazon basket in Black Friday week, but by the time I’d checked compatibility it was sold out, and I now resent paying full price!
