Leading telecommunications service provider, Airtel Nigeria, has launched a new device called Airtel Smart Router, a 4G router capable of connecting up to 10 devices, with the additional benefit of offering a smart TV experience on a regular television set.

The Airtel Smart Router is programmed to leverage both wireless and ethernet connections to provide users with a smart TV experience directly through their television screens. With embedded applications, users can effortlessly access popular entertainment streaming platforms such as Netflix, Hulu, and Showmax, dramatically elevating their viewing experience with personalized, immersive, and current content.

Commenting on the launch, Chief Commercial Officer, Airtel Nigeria, Femi Oshinlaja, said the new Smart Router represents a major leap forward in how people experience entertainment at home.

“With the Airtel smart routers, we can now deliver affordable and superior entertainment content from multiple streaming services to the home of many Nigerians without a non-smart TV set. By integrating advanced connectivity and a user-friendly interface, we are offering our customers the ability to unlock a world of digital content directly on their TVs,” he said. 

This cutting-edge device will advance home entertainment technology, offering seamless connectivity and access to a wide range of digital content.

In addition to the smart TV advantage, the Smart Router, which is SIM-based and 4G capable, can connect up to 10 other devices concurrently, allowing a mix of entertainment, security, work, or leisure devices all on the same internet subscription. 

“Users can connect smart cams, smart doorbells, tablets, smartphones, laptops, and TV at the same time,” Oshinlaja noted.

He also disclosed that intending users can purchase the Smart Router online via https://airtel.com.ng/hbb-discover-new. “After purchasing the device at N25,000, unlimited data awaits customers for 30 days, and a 100% bonus for six months when they recharge the N10,000 – N15,000 bundle,” he said.

These bundles, he explained, could be purchased via Airtel.com.ng/HBB, *370#, bank apps, Quick teller, or any other airtime/data purchasing apps.
