After receiving a few emails about the obligatory router (Netgear DG834GT) that must be purchased from UK Online before they will supply their ADSL2+ service, we felt it best to mention this in our news to avoid people missing this cost when considering the service.
The Netgear DG834GT costs £79.99 from UK Online and is in addition to the £25 one-off connection charge. While it seems unfair to force a specific hardware choice on end-users, there is some sense since it makes supporting the product a lot easier. For those UK Online users who have paid out previously for the ActionTec hardware on other services, it would be nice to see some sort of trade-in deal in the near future.
