Vodafone, which has recently rolled out its new fixed-line Home Broadband service to around 22 million premises across the UK, claims the bundled router they offer is “future proof".
The router supports Vodafone's advanced 802.11ac Wi-Fi with beamforming, as well as four Gigabit LAN ports.
According to ISPreview, Nikolas Choulakis, Vodafone’s Converged Terminals Assurance Manager, said: “This router is future proof. Today it supports fibre and it also has best-in-class WiFi that supports a lot of older standards, but it also has the ability and the hardware to support what’s coming next."
He added users would be able to connect hard drives to create Network-Attached Storage (NAS) setups, which enable access from any device in the home.
"You can also pair WPS-enabled devices like smartphones or other WiFi devices by pairing with the touch of a button," he concluded.
When asked about what was next for Vodafone, Mr Choulakis said customers would "just have to wait and see".
