TP-Link Archer C59 AC1350 Wireless Dual Band Router £30 @ Sainsbury's

Reduced from £50 in the post Christmas bargain aisle. Seen in the Straiton (Loanhead) store but could well be nationwide. Currently £51.95 on Amazon.

Not a bad deal for someone wanting a mid range Wi-Fi router to replace something the ISP provided or upgrade from b/g/n to ac. Good in high density housing areas where the 2.4GHz band is suffering interference (this also does 5GHz).

Note you still need a modem like the white BT Openreach modems or connect to your existing router that is in bridging mode.

Think you should've made it more obvious in the title this is an instore (aka wild goose) deal.

Saw this in my local Sainsbury’s last weekend (think it was £35) - would have bought but need gigabit Ethernet
Of no help at all, but this is also reduced in Tesco, noticed one yesterday, which was cheaper than this, but (a) I have no idea how much cheaper or (b) any proof. Still if one of these rocks your boat it might be worth a look.....
Saw one in Sainsburys St Clares (Hampton) earlier
Saw one in weymouth Sainsburys
Unfortunately it only has 100Mbps Ethernet. No good for any broadband faster than 100Mbps
Prefer the 1600
The only signal you're likely to pick up from a TPLink is the sound of da police


I've got my standard sky router from about 5 years ago with standard sky broadband (via phone line). I get ~12mb/s. Am I likely to see and improvement in speed with somethibg like this or just range?

Unlikely to see much (if any) improvement to your WAN speed (bit to the outside world). Internally you would probably get an improvement (say copying files from a laptop with AC Wi-Fi to a NAS box plugged into the router).
Found it in my local store for £35 Has the price increased overnight or is this store specific?

Well it was £50, then £35 and now £30. Perhaps your store hasn't updated the ticket to £30?

Just looked it up... how odd... 450Mbps on 2.4, 867 on 5GHz - and only 10/100 Ethernet ports - ok, the WiFi speeds are maximum, best case, but it seems a strange mix.
Found it at £22 on Ebay - Refurbished
