Netgear has this week introduced the world’s first quad band WiFi 6E system to its Orbi range announcing the imminent availability of its new Orbi Quad-band Mesh WiFi 6E System (RBKE960 Series). The latest WiFi 6E system builds on the company’s previous Orbi Tri-Band WiFi 6 system and now offers an additional band to deliver quad-band technology with “faster Internet speeds to more devices simultaneously with less interference and wait time” says Netgear.
