Fast, Powerful Wi-Fi
When it comes to HD content, bandwidth is everything. Without it, you get video buffering, slow downloads, and dropped connections. Kindle Fire HDX solves this issue by using state-of-the-art dual-band, dual-antenna Wi-Fi. With this, you’ll enjoy fewer dropped connections and faster media streaming, plus you’ll be able to go further from your wireless hotspot than with other tablets.
Kindle Fire HDX features the latest 4G LTE technology for ultra-fast mobile broadband, letting you connect to the internet, stream, and download at speeds even faster than Wi-Fi. Kindle Fire HDX supports multiple bands ensuring that you always have the best and fastest possible connection on AT&T’s or Verizon’s expansive 4G LTE wireless network.
You can sign up for a data plan right from your device.
