Telstra Team With Netgear On Gigabit 4G LTE Device
Telstra and Netgear are banding together to bring the ultra-fast and ultra-lightweight Nighthawk M1 to Australian customers.
Promising to marry the convenience of a mobile hotspot with the full functionality of a travel router, the M1 supports up to 20 Wi-Fi devices on a single connection and boasts download speeds up to 1Gbps. It’s also packing an ethernet port and both a normal USB and USB-C port to enable easy media streaming setups.
Telstra says that the process of setting up and connecting to the device will be made easy by vritue of its integration with Netgear’s Netgear Up app, available on both iOS and Android.
Andrew Volard, Director of Device Management for Telstra, “the Nighthawk M1 mobile router powered by Telstra offers incredibly fast data transfer speeds, a long-lasting battery, and other great features for a world class mobile experience.”
“We’re innovating at the cutting edge of mobile broadband technology so our customers can work with greater ease on the go and access the content, services and applications they love when they’re outside the home,” he said.
Likewise, Netgear’s Vice President of Mobile Network Products Andrew Green says that the M1 is a quality product born out of a strong relationship between the two companies.
“For the past 15 years, Telstra and NETGEAR have worked together to deliver the most innovative mobile broadband products for customers. With their focus on innovation and customer experience, we’re delighted that Telstra has again chosen to team with us for the initial launch of our Nighthawk M1 mobile router,” he said.
NETGEAR Nighthawk M1 mobile router (MR1100) will be available next month in Australia from Telstra in store and online at the recommended retail price (RRP) of $360 (AUD) upfront or a range of plans.
