3 reasons to buy a tri-band router

A router distributes the internet connection between all devices that connect to the network. Apart from single-band and dual-band routers, tri-band routers have been on the market since 2015. What's the advantage of a tri-band router? Below, you'll find 3 reasons to buy a tri-band router.

1. Not 1, not 2, but 3 WiFi networks

Tri-band router

Most routers offer 1 or 2 WiFi networks. A tri-band router uses 3 WiFi frequency bands and automatically connects your device to the fastest and least crowded network. That way, you'll be sure you can carry out the heaviest network tasks, such as 4K streams and online gaming, without any problems or glitches anywhere in the house. This makes a router with multiple WiFi bands suitable for families that want to connect more than 10 WiFi devices to the home network at the same time.

2. No interference on two 5GHz networks

Radio waves from wireless phones, remotes, Bluetooth devices, baby monitors, and even microwaves interfere with the 2.4GHz network. Even when you don't want to connect a lot of devices to WiFi, this leaves you with fewer channels to connect network devices. The 5GHz band has more channels and isn't bothered by interference from household appliances. A tri-band router has 2 5GHz networks, meaning you'll always have a stable connection.

3. High speed: even in case of intensive use

When you're streaming your favorite series in HD, it takes more out of your network than when you're visiting this page. If you connect another device to the same WiFi band, they'll be sharing the bandwidth. A tri-band router recognizes a device's capacity and connects it to the band that fits best. With 2 separate 5GHz bands, you'll get the best out of your wireless devices such as computers, media players, smart TVs, laptops, tablets, smartphones, and other WiFi devices, even when you're using all of the devices at the same time.
