Getting great internet shouldn’t be difficult, nor should it take an age to get online. That’s why we’re excited to exclusively carry the new Netgear Orbi 4GX Router with Satellite mesh Wi-Fi system for great mobile broadband internet in the home, office or anywhere you get good coverage on the Telstra mobile network.

Fast connections, delivered even faster

The best part about the Orbi 4GX router is how fast you can get online. Just plug it in, connect and you’re ready to go.

The Orbi is an 802.11ac Wi-Fi modem/router that runs on our mobile network. It can keep up to 30 Wi-Fi devices connected at once, meaning it’s great for your family home, office or smart home.

Because the new Orbi router runs on our awesome 4GX network, in 4GX coverage areas, it will give you access to typical download of 5 to 300Mbps. Actual speeds will, however, vary for reasons like location, distance from base stations, terrain, user numbers, hardware/software configuration, download source and upload destination.

The Orbi provides extended Wi-Fi coverage around the home thanks to the bundled satellite, and includes Wi-Fi 802.11ac for faster high-quality Wi-Fi, ideal for streaming video, and high speed data transfer.

More Wi-Fi in more places

It’s called the Orbi’s “satellite”, and it uses mesh networking to boost the range of the Wi-Fi network around your home. Thanks to the satellite mesh network, you’ll have up to 280-square metres of Wi-Fi coverage.

And you don’t have to worry about switching between different networks, either: the router and satellite work together to create a single Wi-Fi network, to keep it simple.

That means you can move around a home, an office or confidant, with greater access to the speed you need to get things done and stay entertained and informed.

The Orbi supports high-speed data transfer; up to 4K streaming, and also powers great gaming experiences, and with the power of Telstra’s 4GX network.

Easier control over what matters

The Orbi 4GX router with Satellite is a great way to be online if you’re someone who wants set-and-forget connectivity. But if you’re looking to take more control of your home internet, Orbi makes it easy.

Following the quick set-up, your settings can be controlled via the Orbi smartphone app for iPhone, iPad and Android devices. It allows you to see a list of connected devices, control their individual access to the internet, create a network for guests and more.

It even supports commands via Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant to make controlling it even easier.

Netgear also offers a range of safety features compatible with the Orbi 4GX router, including a basic version of the Circle Smart Parenting app. You can also add a subscription, that gives you access to filters, history and access pause functionality for every member of the family. The product comes with a one-month free trial of additional security protection software that defends against online threats.
