Com Hem taps Compal for high-speed routers

Swedish cable operator Com Hem has launched a new high-speed WiFi router provided by Compal.

Com Hem cited a study by technology testing provider Excentis that found the the Compal CH7486E router to be up to four times faster than the devices provided by Com Hem’s service provider rivals Telia and Brebandsolaget, with better performance at longer distances, to justify its choice.

The device has three antennas and uses technology including Beamforming – a signal focusing technology – and dual band, enabling concurrent access to both 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless channels.

The router will be included for all new Com Hem customers who subscribe to the 250Mbps or 500Mbps tiers from January 28. It will also be available for existing customers to purchase for up to SEK799 plus VAT, depending on the customer’s contract.

“We already deliver fast broadband speeds due to our state of the art network. Broadband customers tell us that WiFi performance is critical to them – they want superfast WiFi. Our new router delivers,” said Asanga Gunatillaka, chief product officer at Com Hem.

“We are really proud of our new Compal router. Independent testing has proved that it is up to four times faster than the best routers from our competitors thanks to its latest technology, as well as offering strong performance when devices are further away from the router.”
