AVM FRITZ!Repeater 2400 or AVM FRITZ!Repeater 600 – which should you choose?

You have it clear, you want to expand your Wi-Fi connection with a repeater, but you have doubts between two AVM models, the FRITZ!Repeater 2400 and the FRITZ!Repeater 600. The first is a mid-high range model, while the The second is a cheaper model, something that is noticeable in its sale price, but also in its benefits. Both support the Wi-Fi 4 standard, but only the former supports Wi-Fi 5.

We have already advanced a very important difference, and that is that the fact that the FRITZ!Repeater 600 is limited to Wi-Fi 4 can be an unthinkable sacrifice for the most demanding users, since the Wi-Fi 5 standard reaches much higher speeds, suffers less interference and is the recommended level if we plan to play online without using a wired connection. However, this is not to say that the AVM FRITZ!Repeater 600 is not an option to consider, as it offers good value for money.

The AVM FRITZ!Repeater 2400 offers higher performance than the FRITZ!Repeater 600, it uses a dual-band configuration that allows you to work in both the 5 GHz band and the 2.4 GHz band. For its part, the FRITZ!Repeater 600 works in the 2.4 GHz band, where it is capable of reaching a peak of up to 600 Mbps, and maintains good support and all the keys that differentiate the AVM software ecosystem, including the FRITZ!OS operating system.

Yes, for you the most important thing is performance, and if you plan to download heavy content and play wirelessly, don’t hesitate, the FRITZ!Repeater 2400 is what you need. On the other hand, if your aspirations are not that high and you have a tight budget, the FRITZ!Repeater 600 is a good option. So that you can compare, for yourselves, what each one offers, I leave you a complete list with its specifications and prices.
