What type of router is required?
We run a Fiber To The Home network, so a Fiber router is required. As per the speed requirement you can choose between a single band (2.4Ghz) and a dual band (2.4 & 5 Ghz) router. The primary differences between the 2 frequencies are the range (coverage) and bandwidth (speed) that the bands provide. The 2.4 GHz band provides coverage at an extended range but transmits data at slower speeds. The 5 GHz band provides less coverage but transmits data at faster speeds.
What if I have the router?
If you have a router which is compatible with our Fiber To The Home network, our support team will configure that for you. You do not have to pay any security amount.
When do I have to return the router?
Our router needs to be returned as soon as possible after the disonnection. If you are not using the Internet for some time, return the router and get the security refund. When you want it back, a security will be charged again.
