Digi Unveils Revolutionary Wi-Fi 7 Router: A Game-Changer in Connectivity

Last week, Digi made a groundbreaking announcement as the first fiber operator to introduce a Wi-Fi 7 router for its customers. This move left many eagerly anticipating more details. Now, we’ve finally got a closer look at this state-of-the-art router – its design, features, and what it means for users.

Wi-Fi 7: Elevating Home Internet to New Heights

Wi-Fi 7 marks a significant leap from Wi-Fi 6, offering faster connection speeds and remarkably lower latency. This is a boon for activities like streaming and gaming over wireless networks. Moreover, Wi-Fi 7 enhances connection coverage and supports a higher number of devices simultaneously, perfect for the growing demands of the Internet of Things. Plus, its backward compatibility ensures it works seamlessly with devices supporting older Wi-Fi versions.

Introducing the ZTE F8748Q: The Heart of Digi’s Offering

The much-awaited model, ZTE F8748Q, is a product of collaboration between Digi and ZTE, known for their expertise in router and ONT manufacturing. What sets this router apart is its vertical design, resembling a large book, which saves space without compromising on style.

Design and Functionality: A Closer Look

This router, predominantly white, boasts a sleek, polished finish. Its vertical orientation is unique, and despite its height, its narrow build allows easy placement on any shelf. Notably, the router features:

  • Two phone connection ports for seamless call management.
  • A 10 Gigabit Ethernet connection, ready for Digi’s 10 Gigabit network in Pro mode.
  • Four Gigabit Ethernet ports, a USB port, and power controls.
  • An ECO button for energy-saving mode.
  • WPS and Wi-Fi buttons for easy configuration.
  • Efficient top ventilation for improved cooling.

Who Stands to Benefit from Digi’s Wi-Fi 7 Router?

This high-end router, initially, will be exclusive to PRO-DIGI subscribers, Digi’s 10 Gbps fiber service, to fully utilize its advanced capabilities. The first 1,000 customers in Spain to sign up for this service will receive the router as a complimentary offer. However, it’s important to note that the router is not a free gift; it must be returned or purchased if the service is discontinued.

Digi’s Wi-Fi 7 router represents a significant step forward in home internet technology, catering to users seeking ultra-fast, reliable connectivity.
