Netgear Orbi RBKE963: With 6 gigahertz WLAN
The 6 gigahertz WLAN offers additional space and at the same time relieves the congested 2.4 and 5 gigahertz frequencies, especially in metropolitan areas. The Federal Network Agency released the necessary 6 gigahertz frequencies in July 2021. In this country, however, only a small part of the total spectrum approved in the USA can be used so far. It is currently unclear whether and when the usable spectrum will be expanded in Germany.
Orbi RBKE963: Suitable for 10 Gigabit Internet
Anyone who has booked an Internet speed of 10 gigabits per second (Gbps) with their provider can be pleased that Netgear has installed a correspondingly fast network socket in the Orbi RBKE963 for the connection to the Internet. Nobody in Germany should be interested – after all, private customers in this country can reach a maximum of 1,000 megabits per second (1 Gbps). In addition to the Turbo Internet connection, Netgear has soldered further LAN ports with a speed of 2.5 Gbps – this means that end devices in the network can also be quickly supplied with data via cables.
Netgear Orbi RBKE963: Price and Release
The three-pack Netgear Orbi RBKE963 costs 1,499.99 US dollars – the same applies to the “Black Edition” RBKE963B with black Orbis. A single retrofit satellite (Orbi RBSE960) costs $ 599. In the USA and Great Britain, delivery starts for the Christmas season. Prices and the release date for Germany are still unknown.
