Re: WiFi 6 modems

The only WiFi 6 Telstra modem available at the moment is the Telstra 5G Home modem. I have tested the WiFi performance of this modem and on all my devices which are WiFi 5 or WiFi 6 the WiFi link speed was same as the WiFi link speed when connected to the Telstra Gen 2 Smart modem which is WiFi 5. In fact some of the older devices were slower. Even the one device that I had that supported WiFi 6 was did not have a faster WiFi link speed when connected to the WiFi 6 modem than when connected to the WiFi 5 modem.


Pretty soon there will be devices modem's coming out that support WiFi 6e. I will waiting untill WiFi 6e is available before updating any of my devices
