Plusnet has launched a new, energy-efficient broadband router designed to improve the customer experience.
The Plusnet Hub Zero offers a number of new features, including longer cables for flexibility of placement, tough ABS plastic housing and a next-generation Broadcom chipset for "snappier performance".
There are different versions for copper-based ADSL broadband users and super-fast fibre subscribers.
According to Plusnet, the Plusnet Hub Zero uses 40 per cent less energy than its previous router and meets European Union rules for standby power consumption.
The router is easy to set up and use, and can be placed in various locations throughout the home without impacting on broadband quality.
"We have made the cables longer to provide more flexibility in router placement. This is to avoid people leaving [their router] on the floor or dangling it in mid-air," Plusnet explained.
The ADSL version of the Plusnet Hub Zero will ship with only one microfilter, instead of two. However, customers will be given more if they need them, free of charge.
