Minim Unveils True Gigabit-Speed Motorola Modem at Most Competitive Market Price and Powerful Modem/Router Paired with Award-Winning Mobile App to Fuel Retail Expansion

MANCHESTER, NH, March 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire – Zoom Telephonics Inc., doing business as “Minim" (OTCQB: MINM), the creator of innovative internet access products under the globally-recognized Motorola® brand, today announced nationwide availability of next-generation DOCSIS 3.1 networking devices and an intelligent mobile app. The intuitive app, powered by Minim, delivers essential security and management for consumers and small businesses.

Now launching in BestBuy.com online and in stores nationwide, the products will also be available at Micro Center, Barnes & Noble, B&H, Newegg, and Staples this Spring. Barnes & Noble, B&H, and Staples mark new retail channel expansions. Walmart, Target and Amazon are also active Motorola sales channels.

These product launches establish new leadership positions for the innovative Motorola brand. The new Motorola MB8611 Cable Modem with 2.5 Gig ethernet ($169.99) delivers true Gigabit-plus speeds at the most competitive price point on the market. The new Motorola MG8702 Gigabit Cable Modem with built-in AC3200 4X4 Router ($269.99) includes a bundled mobile app that saves consumers with smaller homes from purchasing a separate WiFi system for advanced security and network management features.

“Motorola continues to be an innovative, trusted brand with great performance,” said Tom Derouin, Owner of Select Sales, consumer product retail experts and Best Buy partner. “As retailers and their customers embrace DOCSIS 3.1 to deliver high speeds, these Motorola products are hitting the mark.”

Gigabit internet availability in the U.S. has surged in the past four years – from 2.4% in 2016 to 56% in 2020 – according to Broadband Now.

“Our award-winning mobile app will be included with each go-forward modem and router combo, enabling consumers to take full advantage of speed testing, data tracking, guest network management, malware prevention, ad blocking, parental controls, and more— all in one device,” said Alec Rooney, CTO of Minim. “We couldn’t be more excited for consumers to realize full Gigabit service with the Motorola MB8611, and to personalize their network with the Motorola MB8702 and mobile app.”

“The line between work and life is blurring,” said Katherine Jacques, Associate Category Merchant at Staples. “Bringing advanced Motorola networking products into the Staples portfolio makes perfect sense as we empower our customers with solutions to keep their teams productive, connected, and inspired— wherever and whenever. We are particularly looking forward to educating customers on the security benefits that the Motorola MG8702 brings to the remote worker home. The comprehensive network threat blocking will be a great tool for teams to protect their corporate data across home networks.”

“Micro Center is pleased to add the new Motorola DOCSIS 3.1 products to our shelves,” said Greg Leser, Sr. Merchandise Manager at Micro Center. “Having served over 22 million customers, Micro Center has been a trusted Minim retail partner for over 30 years. Our customers benefit from our Micro Center staff’s deep technical expertise and guidance. With in-depth training, we are ready to consult customers on maximizing their network performance with the Motorola MB8611 and Motorola MG8702.

“As a comprehensive smart home electronics specialist, B&H is eager to expand our extensive product portfolio to a new category of cable products with cutting-edge Motorola devices,” said Menasha Zupnick, Head of Retail Marketing at B&H. For 28 years, B&H has flexed to meet our customer’s electronics needs, landing us recognition as a leading electronics retailer in Consumer Reports. Now, our Motorola product set will help us address B&H customers’ needs, starting with the critical home edge.”

“We are excited to launch the next generation of Motorola high-speed products in Newegg,” said Felix Wu, Category Manager at Newegg. “As a leading tech-focused e-retailer with global reach, we are deeply committed to superior product performance and customer service. We are confident that the MG8702 and MB8611— backed by a two-year warranty— will be a great addition to a growing category in our unparalleled product selection.”
