We tested the Vodafone Wifi 6 router: how to multiply the Internet speed by four

The operator launches its new router to improve the speed of the connection in homes at a cost of 9.99 per month.

The tariffs that offer speeds of 500, 600 and even a gigabyte to navigate with fiber at home, have long come into our lives, but these speeds are rarely the ones that devices actually reach.

But recently, the operators have begun to improve the quality of their routers, a fundamental part of this gear so that the Wi-Fi that we connect to at home from the computer, TV or mobile, arrives in all its splendor.

First it was Movistar and Orange, in 2021, and now it is Vodafone's turn, which in April deployed its new routers, which on paper multiply Internet speed by 4.

I have been testing Vodafone Wifi 6 for the last two weeks at home and these are the main improvements I have noticed.

The new Vodafone router is available to all customers of the brand with fiber and on paper, the operator indicates that it multiplies the connection speed by 4. In my case, we can say that it has more than tripled, reaching 600 Mbps both downstream and upstream and significantly improving the connection at home. And all this without cable, through the Wi-Fi connection.

In addition, this router integrates the WP3 standard for greater security and energy efficiency and allows you to connect up to 120 different devices without lowering the quality of the connection.

The Vodafone WiFi 6 Station operates on the 2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz Wi-Fi bands and offers better coverage thanks to its 4x4 antenna system.

It must be specified that to get the new Vodafone router it is necessary to pay a separate fee (3 euros per month), because the company does not install this equipment by default for its customers, neither new nor old. Worth? Yes.

The speed of the connection improves tremendously and it is very worthwhile if you telecommute at home, greatly improving the connection in video calls or, for example, if you play online, since the latency is also lower. In these two weeks of use, I have not had any problems (before, for example, on television I noticed delay and slower), also improving the speed in the rooms farthest from the router, where I reach 200 mbps.

The installation of the new router is included and will be carried out by an official company installer, in addition to the operator offering a 24x7 assistance service for customers who contract this service.
