Early last year, we decided to look at refreshing the routers we offered as part of our broadband packages. We evaluated around 30 routers and ZyXEL were one of the partners that came out on top due to their versatility and good all-round features. The wireless performance is strong and consistent and they are extremely reliable.”


In particular, Eclipse was impressed with the strong wireless signal delivered by the ZyXEL routers over an extended range and the ease with which they can be set-up and used therefore supporting the business in delivering the best in customer experience. The strong wireless functionality of the routers, such as the ability to pre-program wireless capability to be turned on and off at certain times of the day, was also important to provide customers with the flexibility to control periods of use.

We will be supporting and assisting Eclipse to further enhance their industry leading service and support in delivering the best possible experience and services to its customers. ”
