NETGEAR has launched a new addition to its unlocked 5G mobile hotspot lineup. At a time when access to fast, secure and reliable internet is more important than ever, the NETGEAR Nighthawk M6 Mobile Hotspot Router (MR6150) raises the mobile broadband experience to new heights by upping the maximum 5G speed that can be supported and adding 160MHz capability to connect with the latest WiFi 6 client devices. 

NETGEAR launched the world’s first unlocked 5G hotspot in 2021 with the award-winning Nighthawk M5. Now the company is building on that achievement with the M6, which is 20% faster than the M5 at 2.5Gbps over 5G and has the capacity to hit a maximum combined WiFi speed of up to 3.6Gbps1 when connecting to 160MHz WiFi 6 devices.  Additionally, the M6 comes with In-Home Performance Mode which boosts WiFi coverage up to 1,000ft² when the device is plugged in, and the battery is removed.

Robust connectivity wherever, whenever

The Nighthawk M6 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon SDX62 Mobile Platform and delivers premium performance with ground-breaking speeds. Dual-band 2.4GHz and 5GHz AX3600 WiFi 6 is ideal for all mobile connectivity needs from fast file transfer to high-end video streaming on up to 32 connected devices. A powerful 5040mAh battery lasts up to 13 hours on a single charge, providing power throughout the day and night.

At home or the office, M6 can be used for both primary or backup internet access, especially in rural areas where reliable and fast wired Internet access is not available. When on the road, the M6 provides the most secure, private Wi-Fi connections for laptops, tablets and phones in airports, hotels, trains and other places offering public Wi-Fi. When users want to conserve 5G data usage or in areas where only public Wi-Fi but no cellular signal is available, the M6 offloading feature enables tethering to local public Wi-Fi for internet connectivity while eliminating the need to manually connect each device to the local public Wi-Fi.

“We really listened to our customers to determine how they are using these devices and set out to provide a superior Wi-Fi experience whether they need portable and secure access on the road, powerful, reliable internet at home or both,” says David Henry, President and GM of Connected Home Products and Services at NETGEAR. “We are leveraging our more than 25 years of wireless expertise to generate this incredible, next-generation combination of 5G and Wi-Fi 6 in the form of the Nighthawk M6, which will drastically improve the way we stay connected from wherever we live, work and play.”

The M6 is easy to set up and use, and its compact design makes it easy to bring wherever a wireless connection is needed. It has an intuitive colour touch screen to conveniently monitor data usage, view the Wi-Fi name/password, check mobile signal strength and manage device and network settings. The Gigabit Ethernet and USB-C ports make it easy to connect and distribute fast internet speeds to wired devices and external 5G antennas (sold separately) can be connected to the available antenna ports to boost reception in buildings, at remote sites or wherever network coverage is sparse.
