About the Product
Use the 2.4 GHz band for everyday tasks, while leaving the high-speed 5 GHz AC band free for HD video streaming. With fewer devices using the high-speed 5 GHz band, there’s less interference and congestion, giving you better performance and a lag-free wireless experience.
The AC3200 ULTRA Wi-Fi Router is like three wireless routers in one. It has a 2.4GHz wireless band offering speeds up to 600Mbps and two separate 5GHz wireless bands delivering speeds up to 1,300Mbps that all operate at the same time.
