Reading, Berkshire, UK - 5th, September 2017 – New uniforms, shoes, pencil cases...and reliable wireless. With the new term fast approaching TP-Link is offering a series of discounts on home networking essentials to provide children, teens and undergraduates with reliable and secure access to the online resources provided by schools and universities. As pressure for bandwidth increases, home owners should consider upgrading to wireless AC routers, enabling smart phones and tablets to take advantage of the extra performance and network management features.

TP-Link has a range of promotions to celebrate the first day of term.

Lino Notaro, retail sales director at TP-Link UK, said: “Wireless access is the new TV remote, causing arguments up and down the country, although this can be easily avoided. “Simple-to-use networking devices are available both online and in store to boost the speed and range of your home network, and support simultaneous streaming, gaming and surfing.

“Back to school is traditionally an expensive time for parents with a long list of uniform and equipment that needs to be purchased, so it makes sense to take advantage of the seasonal offers available on the high street and online.”
