D-Link has unveiled a new home Wi-Fi router which will give users Internet connection speeds of over 2Gbps.

The DWR-2010 5G Enhanced Gateway is intended for use with 5G networks, and will reportedly be available before the end of 2019 to home users.

"It delivers speeds up to 40-time faster than the [average] fixed broadband speed in the US. The incredible speeds of 5G allow the DWR-2010 to take advantage of its Wi-Fi capability, fully utilising the bandwidth capability of its wireless network," said D-Link.

This means users can expect download speeds of between 2Gbps to 3Gbps when the router is running optimally.

The company provided the following specifications for the device:

Embedded 5GNR NSA module.
Qualcomm SDX55 chipset.
Sub-6GHz or mmWave frequency compatible.
5 Ethernet ports (2.5Gbps LAN, 1Gbps LAN, 1Gbps WAN/LAN).
AC2600 dual-band Wi-Fi with MU-MIMO (800Mbps + 1732 Mbps).
4 external antennas for LTE/5G NR.

The device will also feature a simple set-up process, and will only require users to insert a compatible SIM card and plug the device into a plug point – much like existing LTE routers available on the market.

Additional features include support for D-Link Wi-Fi Mesh, which means users will be able to create a single access point which covers their entire home. VoLTE is also supported by the router.

No pricing information or official launch date was shared by D-Link.
