Netgear Expands Orbi Range
Netgear has expanded its stylish and slimlined series of Orbi routers, with two new offerings to round out the range’s core proposition.
The new RBK30 Orbi Tri-band WiFi package features an AC2200 router and wall-plug, designed to cover an area of up to 200 square meters.
Meanwhile, the RBK40 Orbi Tri-band WiFi System includes the AC2200 router and matching satellite, which are designed to cover a property of up to 250 square meters.
They join the original RBK50, which is an AC3000 router with a matching satellite (adding 125 meters of additional range) – priced at $749.
Essentially, the pitch here is that these new offering will make the Orbi a better fit for those with smaller homes.
“Today, WiFi is now considered to be as critical as any other home utility. You would not be willing to settle for sub-par electrical coverage or inadequate plumbing and you should not be expected to contend with a wireless network that does not deliver the coverage and performance you need. With this new expanded portfolio of Orbi Tri-band WiFi systems, we are introducing solutions to provide the best WiFi for an even broader range of households. We believe that no one should be without the best WiFi experience available,” said David Henry, senior vice president of home networking devices for NETGEAR.
“With our patented industry-first Tri-band WiFi provided by the Orbi WiFi systems, you can now enjoy optimum WiFi performance even at the furthest edge of your property. So, go ahead and binge-watch the latest streaming series in the family TV room while the kids are enjoying rapid-fire online gaming from their room upstairs.”
Netgear say that they’ll be further buffering the range in the near future with, with seperate wall-plug and dedicated satellite stations starting at $249 and ranging up to $399.
The RBK30 is priced at $499, the RBK40 comes in at $599. Both are available from Netgear’s usual retail partners.
