The advantages of Wi-Fi 5

Take advantage of fast Wi-Fi 5, with higher speeds and a boost to your Wi-Fi network's range. The majority of FRITZ! products that support Wi-Fi, such as the FRITZ!Box 7590, use this technology.

Fast connections at triple the speed

The Wi-Fi 5 standard provides considerably higher speeds in your wireless network than Wi-Fi 4 did. Wi-Fi 5 reaches gross data rates of up to 1300 Mbit/s – three times faster than with the previous standard.

Excellent range with strong signal

Are there a couple of spots in your home with weak Wi-Fi? Maybe coverage doesn’t extend down to the basement or into the garden? The good news is that FRITZ! products that support Wi-Fi 5 offer top throughput rates even over greater distances.

Ideal for large amounts of data

Be it large HD videos or even a whole music library, Wi-Fi 5 is ideal for large amounts of data. Thanks to increased bandwidth, your data can be transferred at exceptionally high speeds and there is plenty of capacity for integrating multiple devices into your home network.

Everybody needs good neighbors

In cities in particular, yours is not the only Wi-Fi network. Wi-Fi 5 supports an increased number of Wi-Fi channels, meaning it may be easier to avoid neighboring networks. This gives both you and the people next door more stable Wi-Fi.

Make the switch to Wi-Fi 6

Newer FRITZ!Box models such as the FRITZ!Box 6660 already support Wi-Fi 6, the next-generation wireless standard. In addition to higher data rates and the use of more devices at the same time, Wi-Fi 6 reduces power consumption, increasing the battery life of smartphones and other wireless devices. When purchasing new wireless devices, it's a good idea to ensure they support the new Wi-Fi 6. Find out more about the next generation in Wi-Fi in our guide.
