EE customers are set to receive a significant internet boost next year with the launch of a brand new hub.
Users will be among the first in the world to gain access to the next generation of WiFi, which is much more reliable than existing kits.
EE’s next-generation home broadband smart hub will be able to manage a larger number of internet-hungry devices.
This includes things like cloud gaming, augmented reality, 4K streaming and even 8K in the future, all of which require massive amounts of broadband data to function properly.
This is said to mean multi-gigabit WiFi throughout the home with faster speeds, less interference, more capacity and better performance.
The technology – officially known as Wi-Fi 7 – is the next big thing for broadband.
Most of our routers currently use Wi-Fi 6 or Wi-Fi 5.
EE owner BT has partnered with Qualcomm Technologies, the tech giant leading the development of Wi-Fi 7.
The new router should be available to customers sometime in 2024.
Further details will be announced closer to release.
“EE broadband customers will be among the first in the world to benefit from access to a certified next-generation Wi-Fi 7 home hub – offering them the latest in innovation in connectivity,” said EE boss Marc Allera .
“We have a long history of working with Qualcomm Technologies to innovate in consumer mobile – so we’re excited to extend this strategic collaboration to our home products for the first time.”
Cristiano Amon, CEO of Qualcomm Incorporated, added: “We are very proud to partner with one of this industry’s leading innovators to drive the transition to next-generation broadband technology.”
“Expanding our collaboration beyond 5G to our cutting-edge Wi-Fi 7 platform is further evidence of our shared and long-term commitment to transforming the way British consumers work, learn, connect and entertain.”
