With a second Eero unit on the network, the connection is much slower, at close range, it averages 180 Mbps. When the distance is increased, the speed is 150 Mbps. With three units it averages just 70 Mbps at close range and 25 Mbps at a distance. To get the best performance, you need to place satellite units around the main router. See More
Eero WiFi System is available for just under $400. It includes three access points which will cover 4,000 square feet. However if this isn’t enough for you and you need better coverage with decent WiFi speeds, you can get more devices for an extra $199 each. This makes it at least a total of $600, depending on the size of your home. See More
Eero uses a mesh networking software called TrueMesh. It learns information about your network – modem, eeros, and connected devices. It determines how to pass traffic with the best efficiency, notices if there are any changes in your network, and automatically optimizes ways to transmit data. See More
Google WiFi uses built in software, called Network Assist technology, that works behind the scenes to deliver the best possible WiFi connection. When you're walking around the house, Network Assist seamlessly transitions your device to the closest WiFi point for faster connection. It also automatically connects your device to the fastest available band based on your location. See More
I bought Google Wifi to strengthen up my signal for gaming because I was getting ping between 25ms and 250ms. I wasn’t able to run cable, and powerline adapter didn’t work, so I gave Google Wifi a shot. It was awesome. Everything was super easy to set up, and I’m able to control it, and share passwords with visitors via my phone. I have the 200/50mbps package from my internet provider, and I was able to get a solid 150mbps/50mbps and 27ms ping. It’s one of my favorite purchases this year, and I highly recommend it if you’re looking for something simple, and powerful that works right out of the box. See More
The Google WiFi app makes setup very simple. Once you've downloaded the app, you'll have to scan the QR code on the bottom of the WiFi point, which creates a secure connection between the device and your phone. After that all you have to do is to enter the name and password and the app will do everything else in the background. See More
Each hardware unit is called a WiFi point and you can have up to three units. One unit will cover 1,500 square feet, and three units will cover 4,500 square feet. So depending on the size of your home you can choose how many WiFi points you need and place them where they are needed the most. See More
The Google Wifi app for Android and iOS allows complete monitoring and control of your network in a user friendly app. You can see which devices are connected and how much bandwidth each is using. You can prioritize devices for faster speeds when it matters most, even pause your kids' internet for dinner time. See More
It has an intuitive companion app that enables instant setup, includes powerful reporting metrics, and provides easy guest access. If there’s a network problem, you can resolve it via your app. There’s also constant reporting on network security. See More
In situations where two people would try to start video streams at the same exact time on different devices, one of them would be prioritized over the other and it would have to wait until the first had buffered a few bits of data for itself. But usually, you won’t notice a slowdown. This technology will be implemented with AmpliFi HD in the nearest future. See More
The Amplifi HD averages around 705 Mbps of throughput at a close distance of 5 feet. At 140 feet, that throughput drops to 177.5 Mbps — more than enough to share a 100 Mbps broadband connection, which is the top speed that majority of computers, phones or tablets can handle. See More
Plume WiFi uses cloud-based technology to figure out how you’re using the internet. It checks for interference from other devices and what devices are connected to each pod. It uses this information and over time optimizes its network to achieve the best possible performance. See More
With six pods, the system can cover a home of 1,800 square feet. Range of a single pod, with clear line of sight, is about 20 to 30 feet. If there are any obstacles, range decreases to about 15 feet. Beyond 15 feet you might lose connectivity. You’ll need a separate pod for every room and for each pod you'll need a separate outlet. If you have a bigger living room, you might even need two pods. See More
Plume WiFi is capable of a theoretical combined throughput of 1.2 Gbps. Realistically at a close range of 5 feet and a clear line of sight, the router registers throughput of 230 Mbps. When the distance is increased and there is no clear line of sight, throughput drops to 60 Mbps. See More
The OnHub can provide a maximum theoretical throughput of up to 1.9Gbps across its both bands. Up to 600Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and up to 1.3 Gbps on the 5GHz band. Realistically, at a close range of 15 feet (about 4.6 m), the router registers a throughput of 308Mbps. When the distance is increased to about 100 feet (30m), the throughput drops to 179Mbps.
