AVM has a new WLAN router on the market that outperforms all previous models and offers top speeds. Those are the details.
With its own Fritz!Boxes, AVM is one of the most popular router manufacturers in Germany. But the routers from AVM are not only popular, they also regularly do "very well" in our tests. This also applies to the latest model, the Fritz!Box 6690 Cable. Not only did it score "very good" in the CHIP laboratory, but it is also the best AVM Fritz!Box in our list of the best, taking second place there. Only one router from the competition is currently better: the Asus ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 (for testing).
The 6690 Cable is a high-end router with great speed, lots of features and a wide range of features. In terms of functionality, the Fritz!Box can even secure the top mark of 1.0. However, the quality also has its price: At around 280 euros, the router is not cheap to buy. The comparatively high power consumption also contributes negatively to the costs.
Our verdict at the time of testing
"In the test, the AVM Fritz!Box 6690 Cable shows excellent speeds via WLAN. The new premium router for cable Internet has fast Wi-Fi 6, very good equipment and many practical additional functions. Several antennas ensure good coverage. Only the power consumption is a little higher than with the other Fritz boxes. In addition, the router is also quite expensive, for many users of cable Internet it is probably enough for a number smaller." For the detailed test.
