GHI Expert Verdict

While this mesh wi-fi network is expensive, it did a great job at extending the reach of our internet access. The chances are that you won’t find many wi-fi 6 capable devices yet, but that said, it’s a great way to future-proof your home’s wi-fi connection.

      We Liked

      This is the most powerful (and priciest) mesh wi-fi system by Netgear. It supports wi-fi 6, the newest, fastest and most efficient network connection possible. In our tests, it extended a 350Mbps internet service across the whole of a 2,700 square foot property – it even reached the bottom of a 50 foot garden.

        We Didn’t Like

        There are only basic parental controls included free of charge. You’ll need to subscribe for $4.99 per month (£3.82) if you want to access more thorough regulations. We also found that the wi-fi slowed down in the garden and wavered in one room that wasn’t in line with either of the system’s two units.

          All product information provided by the manufacturer is correct at time of publication.
