Get Selects ARRIS Wireless Extenders to Improve Home Wi-Fi®
Get customers will be able to boost the range and stability of their Wi-Fi to get the broadband experiences they want, wherever they are in their home

LONDON, April 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --TV Connect 2016 - April 25, 2016 – Norwegian service provider Get has selected the VAP4300 wireless extender from ARRIS International, plc (NASDAQ: ARRS) to optimize home Wi-Fi experiences.

Consumers demand fast, reliable broadband wherever they are in their home to stream live video, enjoy rich gaming experiences or share and discover new content. Frustration appears when Wi-Fi cannot reach all corners of the house. The ARRIS CEI research shows that 72 percent of people want high speed internet in every room and 54 percent want to extend their Wi-Fi beyond its current range.

The ARRIS VAP4300 wireless extender will amplify the wireless signal to improve coverage. And its plug-mounted design enables a quick and easy installation. It can also be set up as a new access point for added stability and higher speeds.

"To get the most out of the fast broadband connection coming into their homes, our customers need fast, reliable wireless coverage wherever they are in their homes - Get is focused on delivering this seamless coverage. A solution to help optimize the home Wi-Fi network is the VAP4300 wireless extender from ARRIS," said Dan Ramunddal, CTO, Get. "By locating the router at the center of the home and adding the new wireless extender, our customers will enjoy a reliable and stable Wi-Fi experience."

"People want more from their broadband, and in many cases, the limitation is their home Wi-Fi - they're asking for Wi-Fi without limits. Wi-Fi extenders, like the ARRIS VAP4300, offer service providers a quick and simple install solution to ease customer frustration and reduce customer service calls," said Jim Henderson, Senior Vice President, International CPE, ARRIS. "We're predicting that in five years, the modern home will require three extenders to meet connectivity needs. We look forward to continued collaboration with Get, working together on solutions to further improve the home network and consumer Wi-Fi experience."

The ARRIS VAP4300 wireless extender will be available for Get customer from April 2016
