Consumers are now investing not only in higher bandwidth connections but also higher quality routers which enable them to get the best experience out of their devices. For Linksys, India plays a pivotal role in our overall global strategic plans and the E5600-AH AC 1200 router is a reflection of that goal. We specifically had the customer in mind when we wanted to create and design a beautiful, yet affordable, well-functioning router tailor made for average size Indian homes.”
