Automated connectivity

Our new modem will connect you to the best frequency (2.4GHz or 5GHz) for your device automatically. This means your older, slower devices won't hog all the bandwidth and your latest gadgets will fly along at full speed.

Connect more devices

Our new modem can handle up to 32 Wi-Fi devices (16 on each band). That’s twice as many devices as our previous modem and it automatically connects you to the most appropriate Wi-Fi band based on each individual device capability. That’s smart.

Future proof

Our new modem is capable of fibre speeds up to 950Mbps download – the fastest available, so you'll be all set should you need to bump up your fibre plan later on.
