A wireless network is an essential part of every digital home and business. However, purchasing a wireless router these days is no easy task. Long gone are the days where one model rose above the rest. For many of you, a wireless router is the hub of your home and/or business network.

So this brings an important question: Are you looking for the perfect solution to back up primary Internet service or to replace primary Internet service in your office or at home?

If you answered yes, this may be the perfect device for you. Last week Sprint launched the NETGEAR® LTE Gateway 6100D, a fixed wireless router designed to bring high data bandwidth and 24/7 connectivity to fit any business or consumer need. This router combines LTE wireless broadband with 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Gigabit Ethernet to deliver easy-to-install wireless connectivity and reliable broadband in a single compact solution.

The NETGEAR LTE Gateway 6100D is equipped with an embedded 3G/4G LTE modem to take full advantage of the Sprint Spark enhanced LTE network capability and is perfect for business customers. The new Sprint Spark network capability is poised to reinvent the modern workplace and enable mobile employees to be more efficient and productive than ever. Customers can expect to see:
  • Stronger in-building signals for more efficient work in office
