In a rather interesting development, we have noticed that TIME Internet is now providing a new router to its residential high-speed broadband customers. As noted before, the company previously provided D-Link DIR-850L to its 100Mbps and 300Mbps customers.
Now, TIME Internet has opt for TP-Link Archer C1200 instead and the switch up has been noted not only on the comparison table of its residential plans but also the site’s FAQ under the Hardware section. That being said, the D-Link router is still being listed in the WiFi section of the FAQ at the time this article is published.
In case you need a comparison, this is how the tables looks like before and after the switch:
It is not clear whether the switch up is caused by the recent security issues with D-Link DIR-850L (the security statement is still online on TIME’s website) or other reasons. After all, DIR-850L has been around in the market for quite some time and this might be just a coincidence.
It is also not known whether TIME will provide the new router to its existing customers. Hence, we are now trying to reach out to TIME to obtain some lights on this matter.
