Maxis today announced customers of its Maxis Fibre Home Broadband plans will now get a Wi-Fi 6 certified router included. Working in collaboration with Huawei and Kaon, the new router is customized specially for Maxis Fibre customers.
Maxis Fibre Wi-Fi 6 Router Upgrade
According to Maxis, the new Wi-Fi 6 router does support Wi-Fi 6, as well as Wi-Fi certified EasyMesh access points. In the FAQ document, it states that the new Maxis Fibre router can be used with customers’ existing DECT phone.
Connectivity wise, the Wi-Fi 6 technology can support up to 9.6Gbps of data throughput, along with dual-band operation, 1024-QAM modulation mode, downlink MU-MIMO, OFDMA, 160MHz channel bandwidth, as well as beamforming. All in all, if you’re currently using a Wi-Fi 5 router, I would say this would be a pretty major upgrade when it comes to connection stability and efficiency.
Pricing And Availability
So, how can you get one? For one, you can be a new Maxis Fibre customer who sign up for the 100Mbps or above plans starting today. For existing customers who are already on 100Mbps plan and above, you will be getting the router upgrade for free as well. But, that only applies if you’re choosing to renewing your contract with Maxis.
Maxis will be in contact with eligible customers in phases, so if you’re waiting to get one, do look out for that call. To learn more about the new Maxis Wi-Fi 6 router or Maxis broadband plans, head on over to this link here.
