* All data is from HUAWEI lab, by comparing WiFi 5 and WiFi 6 technology. Actual results may vary.

WiFi 6 is three
times faster.

With 1024-QAM and 160MHz bandwidth, the overall speed of WiFi 6 is greatly boosted.

It has four times more capacity.

WiFi 6’s multi-user technology allows multiple devices to share the spectrum.

It has two-thirds
lower latency.

WiFi 6 allows you to enjoy faster response when connecting to multiple devices.

It is 30% less
power hungry.

WiFi 6’s on-demand wake-up functionality reduces power consumption.


Enjoy buttery-smooth streaming and gaming like never before.

You’ll be impressed with the blazing fast speed delivered by the HUAWEI WiFi AX3. Thanks to 1024-QAM and 160MHz frequency bandwidth, its theoretical speed can reach up to 3000Mbps.* At such speeds, buffering and lagging will be a thing of the past.

* This is the theoretical maximum data rate as per the manufacturer’s hardware specification. Actual speed may vary depending on the environment and devices. Afrihost conducted internal tests and got a maximum speed of around 100Mbps on 2.4GHz and between 400-650Mbps on the 5GHz band on a 1000Mbps uplink.

Connect even
more devices.

Unlike traditional routers, you can connect a multitude of devices to HUAWEI WiFi AX3 with greater efficiency.

Supporting OFDMA multi-user technology, the AX3 is capable of sending data to multiple devices simultaneously.* And, it is capable of connecting up to 128 devices overall on dual bands.** No matter how crowded the space, it will serve different users and devices promptly.

* Maximum 4 devices on 2.4GHz and maximum 16 devices on 5GHz.
