Channel Bonding

During rush hour, traffic on a highway can become slow and congested; it’s the same for the Internet. Cable Internet providers use data channels to deliver the Internet to your home. These channels, like lanes on a highway, get congested during peak hours and your Internet access can slow down. However, having more channels on your modem router is like adding lanes to the highway. The more channels you have the faster you go. The Nighthawk WiFi Cable Modem Router supports industry-leading 24 downstream channels. So relax and enjoy super-fast and reliable Internet speeds even during peak hours.
