Netgear adapts its Orbi mesh router to 4G LTE
Netgear’s Orbi line of mesh routers has long been one of our favorite home networking devices, and now the company is showing a tri-band model with a CAT18 4G LTE modem built in.
Netgear will aim the Orbi 4G LTE WiFi Router at consumers living in areas that high-speed broadband providers have previously ignored when it comes to fiber and cable modem infrastructure. Alternatively, the router’s 4G LTE connection can be used as a backup connection for more conventional wired broadband service, such as DSL.
With a 4G LTE connection, the Orbi 4G LTE WiFi Router is capable of sustaining a broadband connection as fast as 1.2Gbps. Whether your service provider is willing or able to provide a wireless pipe that fat—and how much it will cost to maintain a 24/7 connection to the internet over 4G LTE—is a whole other question.
