Hi, I have the same on my BT HomeHub Network,noticed it a few months ago myself,

I am not exactly sure, but I think it is the Manufacturer of the HomeHub? or something like that, there are plenty of people on here that use BT, so hopefully someone can explain exactly what Thomson is, I wouldn't mind knowing myself for sure.

The BT Home Hub is actually a re-branded version of the Thomson Speedtouch 7G broadband router.
