Prepare for the Back to School Rush with a Next-Gen Home Network Upgrade

The modern home network now powers more activities than ever — from online learning and remote work to IoT management, interactive gaming, and VR. Exciting advancements in broadband and Wi-Fi® technologies are following consumer demands, gearing up to deliver even better at-home experiences.

As the summer carries on and back-to-school season approaches, students are preparing for upcoming classroom and homework assignments, possibly in remote or hybrid learning environments — intensifying the need for better home broadband. In fact, by the end of 2025, 90% of U.S. public school districts will leverage a combination of in-person & digital remote learning for regular and ongoing instruction, according to a recent study by Gartner. With remote learning here to stay, a home network that is fast, reliable, robust, and able to support multiple users and devices at once is essential.  The availability of the new 6GHz band is here to deliver just that — with a wave of next-gen devices hitting the market this year, and plenty more to come.
