Vodafone Wi-Fi 6E
Vodafone has made history by becoming the first broadband provider in the United Kingdom to sell a Wi-Fi 6E-enabled router to its clients. The company promises that the new technology will improve the wireless internet coverage that is available within the home.
Wi-Fi 6E is the most recent innovation to come along in the realm of wireless networking. It uses the high-level 6GHz spectrum to increase speeds and capacity while decreasing latency. Consequently, these lead to transmission rates in the multi-gigabit range, which enable companies and consumers to get the most out of their full-fibre connections.
The fact that most customers utilise equipment that their broadband provider provides makes the release of the first compatible routers an important event, and Vodafone is hopeful that it will present the company with a technological edge over its rivals.
6E Router From Vodafone
The ‘Vodafone Ultra Hub’ and the ‘Super Wi-Fi 6E’ are both available with the ‘Vodafone Pro II’ price plans offered by the operator. These price plans give download rates of up to 910Mbps and the ability to connect up to 150 devices simultaneously.
If there is a problem with the customer’s fixed line, the router will immediately connect to Vodafone’s 4G network. Additionally, the company guarantees that if a customer’s home does not receive a signal throughout its entirety, the customer will be able to terminate their contract without incurring additional fees.
According to Vodafone consumer director Max Taylor, “Vodafone Pro II sets the new benchmark for the broadband market in the UK.” It combines the UK’s largest full-fiber footprint with the all-new Vodafone Ultra Hub router, which features the UK’s fastest and most reliable Wi-Fi technology.
The fact that Vodafone’s services are powered by a combination of Openreach and CityFibre’s wholesale networks rather than by the company’s infrastructure provides the foundation for the company’s claim that it has a global footprint. Meanwhile, BT is not a customer of CityFibre, and Virgin Media O2’s gigabit network is still primarily comprised of cable technology. However, the company expects to roll out fibre-to-the-premise (FTTP) technology over its full footprint before the decade’s end.
