AVM to launch 1,300Mbps Fritzbox at CeBIT

Yes, it's that time of year again when my inbox overfloweth with CeBIT press releases (I've only just managed to clear out the CES ones..). One that caught my eye was from AVM, makers of the Fritzbox routers. In it the company says it will be demonstrating several new products, including routers with 200Mbps DSL capabilities (thanks to 'vectoring and bonding', apparently).

But what's more interesting (to me at least) is that it will be launching a 1,300Mbps 802.11ac Fritzbox model - the attached image shows the German prototype. The company also says it will be announcing new mobile apps.

CeBIT runs from 5th-9th March, 2013. If you're planning on going, AVM will be in hall 13, stand 48. I imagine we won't see shipping products here in the UK until well into the summer.

UPDATE 15/3/2013: The new top-of-the-range model (pictured) was named as the Fritz!Box 7490. 

Well, it certainly looks like a Fritzbox
