If you are looking to upgrade your older router to the new 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard which is around three times faster than existing 802.11n technology.
You might be interested in the two new routers launched by Belkin this week in the form of the AC1000 DB and the AC1200 DB. Which are both equipped with Broadcom’s fifth-generation 5G Wi-Fi, 802.11ac chips.
There is very little difference between the two new models released by Belkin, with the AC1000 DB offering dual-band speeds up to 996 Mbps 300 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz + 665 Mbps on 5 GHz for $140.
The AC1200 DB router offering simultaneous dual-band speeds up to 1166 Mbps 300 Mbps on 2.4 GHz + 867 Mbps on 5 GHz for $160. Mike Chen, senior director of Belkin’s networking business explains:
“With a majority of video content being consumed on devices such as smart TVs, smartphones, and tablets instead of a home computer, today’s tech-savvy families have an increasing need for simultaneous connections to multiple devices throughout their homes,”-“The enhanced speed and expanded coverage of Belkin’s AC routers enable families to achieve the truly seamless online experiences they crave.”
