The next big wave of Wi-Fi is here, and it's called Wi-Fi 6.

What is Wi-Fi 6? It's a new wireless standard that offers faster speeds and better performance in congested areas.

This new standard significantly increases available bandwidth, perfect for the exploding number of connected devices in homes today. Wi-Fi 6 also includes power improvements for your highly congested networks. This feature brings enormous improvements in efficiency and battery life to your devices.

For Home Connectivity

With Wi-Fi 6, you can finally have the bandwidth you need to support all your connected devices. Whether you're automating your lighting, creating home security and connected camera solutions, or managing your smart home, Wi-Fi 6 gives you the speed and reliability you need. Additionally, Wi-Fi 6 uses less power than older standards, so your devices will run longer on battery power.

With its powerful Wi-Fi 6E technology, the GigaSpire BLAST is perfect for your smart home-connected environment.

For watching

As we all know, binge-watching has become a popular pastime with the rise of streaming services like Prime Video and Disney+. And what's better than kicking back on the couch and watching your favourite show or movie in HD or 4K or resolution?

Streaming content in high definition can require much bandwidth, which can be a challenge for households with multiple users. But with Wi-Fi 6 routers, you can stream multiple high-definition video sessions without stuttering, buffering, or other annoying hiccups.

Wi-Fi 6 is like adding five more lanes to today's two-lane data highway. So what does that mean for you? Well, it means you can finally binge-watch your favourite show without worrying about annoying interruptions.

With gigabit download speeds, you can enjoy ultra-low lag while streaming content or playing online games. This means you won't have to wait long for videos to load or for games to update.

For gaming

One of the most important things when gaming is having a low-latency connection, allowing players to respond quickly to in-game situations and stay ahead of their opponents. And while many gamers might think that a wired connection is the only way to ensure low latency, that's no longer the case.

So why should you upgrade to a device that supports Wi-Fi 6? If you're a gamer, there are several reasons. Thanks to Wi-Fi 6, gamers can now take advantage of speeds up to five times faster than those offered by Wi-Fi 5. This means that those pesky lags and buffering delays that can often ruin a game are a thing of the past. So if you want to get an edge over your competition, Wi-Fi 6 is the way to go.

Not only is Wi-Fi 6 faster, but it's also more reliable. This means you can game without worrying about losing your connection during a heated match. In addition, Wi-Fi 6 is better at handling multiple devices simultaneously, which is perfect for households where everyone likes to game simultaneously.

For working

Having a solid and reliable Wi-Fi connection is vital when working from home. And if you're like most people, you've probably had problems connecting to ZOOM calls or other online meetings due to network congestion. But thanks to the new GigaSpire BLAST Wi-Fi Certified 6 routers, your work devices can now run at max productivity.

As more and more people are working from home, it's essential to have a router that supports this technology. The GigaSpire is one of the only routers on the market that does. It delivers gigabit download speeds to your most advanced Wi-Fi 6 work devices, all at a fraction of the price of other Wi-Fi 6E devices.


Management of your own Wi-Fi network

App control - The GigaSpire comes with the intuitive My Westman Wi-Fi app that allows you to manage your network settings from your smartphone or tablet. This makes it easy to make changes on the go without fumbling around with confusing menus.

So if you're looking for a router that can handle the demands of today's busy digital world, the GigaSpire and its Wi-Fi 6 capabilities are a perfect choice. It provides the speed and reliability you need and comes with many other features that make it perfect for working from home.

So don't wait – switch to WCG Enhanced Home Wi-Fi to experience the power of Wi-Fi 6!
