We have featured devolo’s home networking kits previously, but if you were impressed, you might well have struggled to find one on the high street. Well, all that should change, with the company signing a distribution deal to sell the kits in PC World.
It’s good timing too. With concerns about Wi-Fi networks (albeit unproven), devolo’s system of networking via home cabling could be perceived as a safer alternative. Other from the company’s latest dLAN 200 AV starter kits include data transfer rates of up to 200Mbps, a reduction in cabling and improved transmission quality compared to wireless set-ups, which can be affected by walls and ceilings.
Peter Huddleston, UK Country Manager at devolo said: “Partnering with PC World is a major new distribution channel for us and will make HomePlug powerline technology available to the widest possible consumer base, enabling users to share Internet resources throughout the house over existing electrical wiring.“
