Customers will receive the Linksys AC2600 router at no additional cost with selected StarHub Broadband and Hubbing plans
Singapore, 6 July 2018 – Linksys®, a leader in networking solutions for the home and business and the first to ship 100 million routers, teaming with StarHub, today announced the launch of the Linksys EA8100-AH Max-Stream™ AC2600 MU-MIMO Gigabit WiFi Router for StarHub customers in Singapore. Starting tomorrow (7 July), customers who sign up for or renew their StarHub 1Gbps Fibre Home Broadband and HomeHub Plus plans will receive the all-new Linksys EA8100 at no additional cost (Usual price: $329).
The Linksys EA8100 was specifically built to solve a key issue for customers in Singapore – home Wi-fi speeds slowed by heavy use and congested signals from multiple routers found in high-rise flats. The Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) certified EA8100 triples the number of channels available at 80MHz, ensuring that high-performing devices – like smart TVs, laptops and phones – can connect to the Internet through faster and cleaner WiFi channels.
“Linksys understands that the typical Singaporean household today has anywhere between 10 – 30 devices operating simultaneously – this puts a strain on the home network to constantly deliver ultra-fast speeds. This problem is compounded by interference and “airspace” congestion from different routers operating in HDBs or high-rise condominiums,” said Jenny Ng, Vice President for APAC, Linksys. “With the EA8100, Linksys and StarHub are fully determined to address real-world WiFi needs and help consumers fully enjoy their broadband connections.”
“The wireless router, though seemingly nondescript, is a vital component that can make or break the WiFi experience for end-users. Continuing our collaboration with Linksys, we are delighted to be the first in the world to carry its latest AC2600 WiFi router for customers to enjoy ultra-fast performance across their home devices. Customers can also rest easy knowing that the Linksys router offers automatic firmware updates to keep security and performance features up-to-date,” said Mr Justin Ang, Head of Product, StarHub.
