Never underestimate the importance of your home router.

As some wise person said, home is where the speedy Internet is. Time to admit it, folks: Fast, low-latency broadband makes everything better. So why not combine that new, superfast connection with a speedy router? Something like the Mi Router 3C. Yes, it looks rather sleek-n-sexy, unlike other routers, which either look boring, or try to pass off as an alien from an 80s sci-fi flick. It’s got 4 antennas, up to 300mbps throughput, and can connect to up to 64 devices at once. And yes, it’s even got app-based, easy-to-configure QoS and bandwidth monitoring - just what you need to ensure no one messes with your weekend gaming or Netflix marathon. The Mi Router 3C will go on sale May 20 at the Mi Home store in Bengaluru, with pre-orders starting May 16. Online sales start May 23 on, and the 3C will goes live on Amazon and Flipkart on June 8.
