Linksys has unveiled its new Max-Stream Tri-Band AC3000 Wi-Fi Range Extender. The device promises to eliminate Wi-Fi dead zones in a user’s home, while maintaining fast connection speeds. The Max-Stream Extender delivers speeds up to 3-times faster than dual-band range extenders, said the company.
“Dedicated backhaul technology maximizes Wi-Fi speeds by assigning a single, dedicated 5GHz Wi-Fi band to your router. This frees up the remaining two bands to focus exclusively on your streaming media players, game consoles, and other connected devices.” The extender also uses “Band Steering” to direct connected devices to the faster and less-congested Wi-Fi band.
Linksys is selling the extender for £169.99.
