If you're like me, you like fast internet. Of course, a lot of us are still limited by the hardware available to us. Granted, it's still fast by our standards, but compared to some countries, we have a lot to be expected. Luckily, the men and women over at Buffalo Tech have come up with a rather ingenious new method of router design that will offer a significant increase in internet speed. This new release will be known as the first 5G device and it's expected to do well in stores and in offices and homes.
"Buffalo Tech on Monday became the first on the market with wireless products touting 802.11ac WiFi, also known as "5G WiFi."
The Buffalo WZR-D1800H
These are its AirStation WZR-D1800H wireless router and WLI-H4-D1300 wireless media bridge.
They purportedly offer speeds up to three times faster than 802.11n, and they are fully backward compatible with 802.11a, b, g and n.
With the release, Buffalo Tech has just beaten out NetGear, which had announced a similar next-gen WiFi product in April and planned to release it later this month. Belkin earlier this month announced plans to offer 5G products as well.
"It was a race to the end," Jay Pechek, Buffalo Technology's spokesperson, told TechNewsWorld. "Buffalo was the first to publicly demonstrate 802.11ac technology at CES [the Consumer Electronics Show] this past January, so we felt that we had a small leg up on the competition."
