Netgear launches WiFi 6 consumer routers in India

May 6 2019: Most of us were only  recently offered  home WiFi speeds of  up to 100 MBPS by our  broadband service providers. And now  we are being told:  That's all history. Get set  to  work ( and play) with1000 MBPS or 1 GBPS.  Gigabit Internet is here.
Just six weeks ago in this space we had  shared a heads up that a new avatar of  the  wireless data standard to be called WiFi 6   was  coming soon. Soon means now: 
Last week, Netgear  became the first  maker of  consumer routers to unveil a slate of  router products which work at the zippier speeds of the new WiFi-6  standard  -- theoretically up to 5 GBPS;  in practice about 4 times faster than the fastest router today.
Netgear Chairman & CEO,  Patrick Lo, stated at the launch event in Bangalore that the company would shortly launch WiFi6 versions of its mesh router system, Orbi. He explained: "The previous Wi-Fi iterations have been largely about enhancements to speed, the AX Wi-Fi 6 router promises a number of other benefits such as lower battery consumption, ability to serve multiple users and devices at the same time and most notably increased capacity and reduced latency.”
