Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
Press release: ASUS have just revealed their new RT-AC52U with USB-AC50, an AC750 dual-band router and AC450 wireless adapter package that will provide consumers with an extremely affordable instant upgrade to the latest 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology for super-fast data-transfer speeds of up to 733Mbit/s.
Having a fast network is more important than ever before, it doesn’t matter if your a business user, or just an enthusiastic home user, we all tend to have several devices per person that need an internet connection in one form or another. Mobile devices, games console, TV, desktop computers, notebooks, they soon add up. There are a lot of advantages to having simultaneous Wi-Fi connections on the RT-AC52U via both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands with its specially-designed antenna that extends the wireless signal by up to 150% compared to other routers. The new router includes a multipurpose USB port that allows users to connect and share a printer, hard disk drive or 3G/4G (HSPA+) data connection. It can even be used to charge mobile gadgets such as smartphones and tablets — a brilliant little convenience.
RT-AC52U supports ASUS AiCloud for easy file synchronization, sharing and streaming and is bundled with USB-AC50, an 802.11ac wireless adapter that works in the 5GHz band for fast, interference-free connections at speeds of up to 433Mbit/s (AC450) — and delivers an instant upgrade to the latest 802.11ac Wi-FI technology.

RT-AC52U’s three antennas are built in to the router for ultra-sleek looks, and they work simultaneously on both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands — doubling the wireless possibilities and more than doubling performance potential.
RT-AC52U is able to transmit and receive data at up to 300Mbit/s in the 2.4GHz band and up to 433Mbit/s in the 5GHz range — simultaneously. The 733Mbit/s combined bandwidth is a huge benefit because, with the included USB-AC50 wireless adapter, users can rely on the 2.4GHz band for daily tasks such as web surfing and email and enjoy fast, smooth and buffer-free online gaming and HD content-streaming on the less-congested 5GHz frequency — and all without a trace of lag.
ASUS engineers have also fitted RT-AC52U with high-powered amplifiers for extended indoor and outdoor range. Compared to competing 802.11ac routers, RT-AC52U increases the wireless signal by up to 150% — extending the router’s range to all corners of the typical home and well into the garden.
RT-AC52U with USB-AC50 will be available from in the UK mid-February at Amazon, Dabs and eBuyer. Please contact your local ASUS representative for further information.
