~Account Management Director Dale O’Halloran & Senior Product Manager Steven Lin of ASUS.We believe Australia is the perfect market to have routers that cater specifically for gamers to get the best performance and match their desired gameplay experience.
Together with Optus we’ve been able to help design a cutting edge VDSL router to deliver WiFi 6 and prioritise gameplay. Our teams worked tirelessly to bring together what we feel will be the BEST VDSL router from any ISP currently in market.
