“ Thomson SpeedTouch 330 - DSL modem - external - USB - 8 Mbps - ATM „
Oh gosh! I was searching for my router to write a review and this came up in the search results, oh the memories of frustration it brings back!
Well for anyone who is unfortunate to live in Hull, we are tied to only one internet provider- Karoo. This modem comes free with all new connections.
I would never encourange anyone to buy this modem, it litrally drove me mad. The log in is complicated, and it takes a while to set itself up when you turn your pc on. You have to wait for the light to stop flashing on the front, which can seem like an eternity! Then in the middle of browsing, it would randomly loose connection and i would have to restart pc or even the modem to get internet access again. I also had problems with installing it onto the PC, the software is very dated and i couldnt quite grasp which product to install- so i insalled them all.. and a few twice over and eventualy it worked.
Overall i wouldn't reccomend this, its a bit dated now and there is plenty of others out there at competitive prices that do a much better job!
With the SpeedTouch 330, surfing the Internet becomes a whole new experience. Just plug your modem into the USB port and let the fun begin.
