As the first major broadband provider in Norway, Get now offers a router that supports the new WiFi 6 technology. We’re happy to announce that the broadband router in question is: Zyxel’s EX5501 – a router that provides an unmatched digital experience with higher speeds, greater capacity and better coverage.

For more on this, here’s Ola-Jo Holthe Semb, Head of Broadband, Get and Telia, “With this router we secure our customers for the future. WiFi 6 is the new standard for wireless networks and opens up a whole new broadband experience at high and stable speed, and the ability to effortlessly use many more devices simultaneously. As a challenger in the market, we are committed to offering our customers the very best in new technology.”

Zyxel EX5501 for the full family

Based on the new WiFi 6 technology, the Zyxel EX5501 delivers wireless speeds of up to 4.8 Gbps on the 5 GHz band and 1.1 Gbps on the 2.4 GHz band. WiFi 6 technology optimizes bandwidth usage in the wireless network and provides greater capacity. This allows a family to stream and surf on multiple devices, mobiles, tablets and laptops at the same time, while still getting high speeds, super-fast.

The broadband router also has a 2.5 Gigabit LAN port, which provides superb wired connectivity and is perfect for gaming and a 2.5 Gigabit WAN port. The router’s built-in antennas also provide much better in-home coverage.

Here’s Marius Rönningen, CEO, Zyxel Communications Norway, “Zyxel EX5501 is one of the most powerful broadband routers on the market, as it has a technically superior solution compared to most other routers. The quality of WiFi has improved dramatically, and we’re very pleased to be able to launch this product with Get.”

The full power of WiFi 6

To leverage all the power of WiFi 6, subscribers of course need devices that support the new technology. Currently, these are mainly available as smartphones like iPhone 11 and the latest Samsung Galaxy models, but more devices, laptops and tablets are surely coming. While we’re waiting, the technology in Zyxel EX5501 is backwards compatible, meaning that the devices you have today will already work well with Zyxel EX5501.

Get offers the best WiFi experiences

It has been Gets ambition for many years to be the leading supplier of great WiFi experiences. For example, the company was the first broadband provider to launch Mesh WiFi and WiFi coverage guarantee through the “WIFIX” service.

With this launch, we’ve reached another important milestone in ensuring that our customers get the best WiFi experience in the home.
