STAMFORD, Conn., April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Charter Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: CHTR) today announced that beginning May 16th, it will begin rolling out a fully-managed dual-band concurrent 802.11ac wireless router, bringing Charter customers the capability to receive the fastest WiFi experience.
Given that the majority of Internet usage in the home is over WiFi, wireless router capability often dictates the end customer experience. The latest wireless specification, 802.11ac, ratified by the IEEE in January 2014, provides much higher throughput than the previous specification (802.11n). Charter's new 802.11ac router, supplied by NETGEAR®, is capable of delivering well over the maximum 100Mbps offered by Charter Internet Ultra, throughout the entire home.
"In most situations, the end customer experience is either limited by the maximum wired speed of the Internet connection, or the capabilities of the wireless router. With the combination of Charter's fast wired Internet speeds and the new dual-band 802.11ac high performance router, customers will be able to unleash the full power of Charter Internet with superior speeds throughout the home." – Jim Blackley, Executive Vice President of Engineering.
Charter's router was tested by Allion Engineering Services to deliver the fastest WiFi speeds amongst competitors. Charter is the first ISP in its markets to offer a high performance 802.11ac wireless router.
