Satisfy your need for speed with the most powerful home networking solutionTORONTO, July 9 /CNW/ - Rogers Cable Communications Inc. today announced the launch of the fastest wireless home networking device, the N gateway. Rogers is the first cable Internet Provider in North America to offer its customers a DOCSIS 3.0 N gateway wireless home networking that has been specifically designed for optimal usage on its high-speed network. This enhanced gateway combines the modem and wireless router into one device, minimizing the clutter and making it easier for customers to manage their wireless home network. With the N gateway consumers are able to extend their wireless connection further, and will have less signal quality issues. "Innovation is the driving force behind everything we do at Rogers," said Chris Draper, Vice President of Product Management, Rogers Cable. "We continuously invest in our network to deliver superior products and services that deliver a consistently better online experience for our customers. Through the enhanced capabilities of our DOCSIS 3.0 network, combined with wireless N technology, we are delivering the most powerful gateway available to our customers." The innovation doesn't end there though. Rogers customers will not only realize the benefits the fastest wireless home networking device brings, but in mid August they will also be able to access the fastest Internet speed available in the market with the launch of a 50Mbps service. Rogers Hi-Speed Internet's fastest level of service will initially be available in the Greater Toronto Area and will be rolled out further in the coming months. To celebrate the launch of both the fastest Internet and fastest home networking device, Rogers will be giving away 50 N gateway devices (valued at $199.95 each) to eligible customers who sign up for the 50 Mbps service. The "First 50 to get 50" will be randomly selected among those customers who enter to win at www.rogers.com/first50.
