Norway gets lightning-fast, next-generation technology with Zyxel’s WiFi 6 solution
As the first major broadband provider in Norway, Get tries to offer unmatched digital experience with higher speeds, greater capacity and better coverage. With broadband industry expertise for decades, Zyxel Communications provides Get with the EX5501, a broadband router that supports the new WiFi 6 technology, to significantly upgrade Get’s competitiveness in the district to the next level.
“With this launch, we’ve reached another important milestone in ensuring that our customers get the best WiFi experience in the home.” says Ola-Jo Holthe Semb, Head of Broadband at Get and Telia.
Marius Rönningen, CEO, Zyxel Communications Norway acclaims, “Zyxel EX5501 is one of the most powerful broadband routers on the market, as it has a technically superior solution compared to most other routers. The quality of WiFi has improved dramatically, and we’re very pleased to be able to launch this product with Get.”
Based on the new WiFi 6 technology, the Zyxel EX5501 delivers wireless speeds of up to 4.8 Gbps on the 5 GHz band and 1.1 Gbps on the 2.4 GHz band. WiFi 6 technology optimizes bandwidth usage in the wireless network and provides greater capacity. This allows a family to stream and surf on multiple devices, mobiles, tablets, and laptops at the same time, while still getting high speeds, super-fast.
The broadband router also has a 2.5 Gigabit LAN port, which provides superb wired connectivity and is perfect for gaming and a 2.5 Gigabit WAN port. The router’s built-in antennas also provide much better in-home coverage.
The full power of WiFi 6
To leverage all the power of WiFi 6, subscribers of course need devices that support the new technology. Currently, these are mainly available as smartphones like iPhone 11 and the latest Samsung Galaxy models, but more devices, laptops, and tablets are surely coming. While we’re waiting, the technology in Zyxel EX5501 is backwards compatible, meaning that the devices subscribers have today will already work well with Zyxel EX5501.
Get offers the best WiFi experiences
It has been Get’s ambition for many years to be the leading supplier of great WiFi experiences. For example, the company was the first broadband provider to launch Mesh WiFi and WiFi coverage guarantee through the “WIFIX” service. Zyxel is really pleased to have assisted our customers like Get in reaching their goals again and again.
With this launch, we’ve reached another important milestone in ensuring that our customers get the best WiFi experience in the home.
