Netgear brings two dual-band Wi-Fi Routers for home

NETGEAR has introduced R6080 and R6120, two fast Dual Band AC1000 and AC1200 Wi-Fi routers for home that deliver Wi-Fi speeds up to 700 mbps and 900 mbps, respectively.


Providing Wi-Fi access that is 3x faster than routers using 802.11n technology, the routers deliver the speed and reliability needed by users for HD streaming and online gaming through a secure and reliable connection to the Internet. NETGEAR genie app, available on both routers, enables users to easily set up, monitor, share and stream music or videos, diagnose and repair network issues and set up parental controls on the home network from any iPhone, iPad or any Android device.


“To take advantage of higher broadband bandwidth being offered by telecom service providers and to support newer generation AC devices, home users must upgrade their Wi-Fi routers to dual band technology without burning a hole in their pocket,” said Marthesh Nagendra, Country Manager, India and SAARC, NETGEAR. “The brand-new R6080 and R6120 routers from NETGEAR pack a 3-in-1 bonanza for home users, combining performance, price and value in one attractive solution,” he added.
