London, UK, 16 December 2011 – TP-LINK, global provider of SOHO and SMB networking products, has partnered with Comet, one of the UK’s leading electrical retailers, to bring TP-LINK’s popular powerline starter kit, TL-PA211, to the high street.
Expanding its high street presence the TP-LINK TL-PA211 starter kit will be available before Christmas in Comet’s 248 stores across the UK. With tablets, laptops and mobiles on every Christmas wish list, consumers are going to be demanding more than ever from their home networks so the TL-PA211 offers the perfect solution, extending network access to even the most inaccessible spots in the home.
Eric Wang, country manager of TP-Link UK said; "Partnering with such a well-respected high street retailer like Comet demonstrates our commitment to the UK consumer market both online and on the high street. Home networking products have gone from niche to norm thanks to the availability of affordable home networking products like the TL-PA211. With more people working from home and an increasing dependence on the Internet to keep in touch socially, consumers are demanding high speed, reliable and secure networks. TP-LINK, together with Comet, is committed to making this a reality."
TL–PA211 is available through comet.co.uk now.
TP-LINK's TL-PA211 Powerline adapter starter kit takes advantage of your home's existing electrical wires to transfer data while simultaneously transferring traditional power. That means, with no additional wiring required, users can simply plug the TL-PA211 into existing power sockets and establish a networking infrastructure. With high-speed data transfer rates of up to 200Mbps, users can enjoy HD video streaming, online gaming, VoIP or any other bandwidth intensive tasks for work or play.
