Netgear launches Nighthawk M2 mobile router capable of 2Gbps speeds through Telstra


There’s still plenty of speed with 4G as Netgear has demonstrated with the new Nighthawk M2 mobile router which runs on Telstra’s 4GX LTE network which is capable of achieving speeds of up to 2Gbps.

The Nighthawk M2 mobile router, which is already on sale through Telstra stores, can support up to 20 wi-fi devices simultaneously.

It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon X24 – the world’s first 2Gbps LTE modem which supports Category 20 LTE Advanced along 4X4 MIMO (multiple in, multiple out).

The Netgear Nighthawk M2 mobile router has a premium finish and a colour touchscreen so users can easily navigate menus on the device on the move.

The device is ideal to stay connected on the go for mobile professionals and is equally at home as a travel router.

The M2 requires no software to install and can be set up in a matter of minutes.

“We are proud to bring Australia’s fastest Mobile Broadband device, the Netgear Nighthawk M2, to Australia’s fastest mobile network”, says Andrew Stormont, Telstra Product Service and Design Executive.

“Netgear has an outstanding record in producing top end devices that offer our customers excellent connectivity options both at home and on the road”.

The Netgear Nighthawk M2 mobile router can also be used as a media hub to stream content and play multiplayer online games.

Also onboard is a simple app-driven user interface which includes parental control options.

It also has a large rechargeable battery that can provide 24 hours of continuous use on a single charge.

You can even use the M2 to charge your mobile devices.

“Netgear is pleased to again partner with Telstra in their deployment of the latest LTE wireless network capabilities, providing consumers with greater access to content with more seamless connectivity and faster downloads,” said David Henry, senior vice president of Connected Home Products for Netgear.

“We are on the path to enabling 5G connectivity, and this latest Nighthawk M2 mobile router offering is one step closer to the realisation of a more connected world.”

The Netgear Nighthawk M2 mobile router is available now from Telstra starting at $39 a month which includes 15GB of data.
