Sometimes there are actual coincidences. Only this morning I reported about the reduced WiFi 6 models from the Netgear Orbi and shortly thereafter I spoke to a press official at another company about it, because there will likely be an announcement there this week. The other well-known brand is now a little faster and once again introduced a new WiFi 6 theme compatible model: AVM with FRITZ! Repeater 6000.
The new tri-band repeater acts as a satellite for the FRITZ Box! Box and it can easily and quickly expand your home WLAN network. The new repeater contains three radio units for this purpose: up to 2400Mbps + 2400Mbps at 5GHz (4 x 4) and up to 1200Mbps at 2.4GHz (4 x 4). According to the manufacturer, a data rate of up to 6 Gb / s can be achieved in a WLAN.
With a FRITZ device! New Repeater 6000, AVM launches a new model that combines Wi-Fi 6 and smart grid technology. With three radio units and 12 antennas, the new Triple Band Repeater is a masterpiece in the Wi-Fi 6 category and takes home WLAN to the next level. (…) Two LAN ports, each of 2.5 GB / s and 1 GB / s, allow the latest generation of network-compatible devices to be combined quickly by cable. (…) The FRITZ! Repeater 6000 is set up in a very short time and is integrated into the FRITZ! Home network with the push of a button.The tri-band repeater automatically supports all FRITZ! Box settings, such as wireless network name (SSID), password, schedule and guest network.
If you want to buy items with a 5-year manufacturer’s warranty, be patient. FRITZ! Repeater 6000 in stores in May, its price is 219 euros. That means it costs about twice as much as the previous top model, FRITZ! Repeater 3000, but it also delivers much greater performance.
