Verizon responds to need for speed with next-gen home router

Verizon (NYSE: VZ) has responded to the growing need for higher speed Wi-Fi home networking connections with the debut of its FiOS Quantum Gateway, a device it claims can deliver up to 800 Mbps. Verizon is also promising greater range of up to 325 feet within a home or business, and the ability to support a larger number of devices such as tablet computers, smartphones and video devices. The device also can potentially support the Zigbee home automation standard via a home area network (HAN) expansion port. FierceTelecom has a complete look at the new device here.
