Rogers Communications, a provider of communications and media services, has announced the launch of its new Advanced Wi-Fi Modem that delivers Wi-Fi internet coverage in the home.
"Our customers have an average of six connected devices in the home and they've told us they want a faster internet connection, no matter where they are, whether in the basement or the backyard," said Phil Hartling, senior vice-president, consumer segment, Rogers Communications. "Our new modem supports our customers' needs as everything moves online and takes Wi-Fi to the next level to deliver our fastest, furthest reaching, and most consistent in-home internet experience."
Rogers is the first carrier globally to launch the fastest 24 x 8 DOCSIS Wi-Fi modem powered by the latest Intel Puma 6MG. Manufactured by Hitron Technologies Americas, the new modem communicates on both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi frequency bands, utilizing high-powered radios to produce a better range and higher speeds. Third-party research conducted by Allion USA, a premiere international engineering validation and consulting company, determined that the new Wi-Fi modem is capable of delivering peak Wi-Fi speeds of up to 420 Mbps.
According to the company, customers on the most popular packages now enjoy download speeds that are at least 25% faster and upload speeds that are at least three times faster than previously offered. The newest Ultimate Internet package delivers download speeds up to 150 Mbps.
The Advanced Wi-Fi Modem is available for a rental fee of $12 per month on all Rogers Hi-Speed Internet packages. Plans start at $44.49 per month, the company reported.
