This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

I've finally bitten the bullet after weeks of umming and arring and it was the 20% discount for Amazon Prime members that did it.

I've only ordered this morning, so I'm not yet in a position to review the Amazon eero as I'd like to, but hopefully I'll be able to sing its praises later today (or tomorrow).

For the more savvy, this isn't the cheapest eero has been, it was £69 earlier this month

I got same day delivery (between 6pm and 10pm tonight) and the Amazon Prime discount drops it from £99 to £79.20 It's also worth noting that the discount is applicable on the 3 pack version also, bringing it down to around £200. That's not the cheapest that pack has been though.

This review on the product sealed the deal for me, after months of headache with the Virgin Media Hub 3

"I had a Virgin Hub 3 before getting this.

380mbit download speed with LAN but only 100-200mbit on WiFi (when next to the router). I also had very weak signal in the far corners of my house (4 bed - thick walls) - so devices were dropping - and this is the issue I wanted to fix.

I plugged in 1 Eero and instantly all my issues went away. I'm getting 300-370mbit in most of the house now - and a minimum of 100mbit in the corners.

I tried using the extra two Eeros - and (annoyingly) the internet speed dropped on several devices - although in the far corners it probably went up a little.

I have decided to just use 1 to replace my Virgin Hub 3 (which you still need - but set to modem mode).

The app itself is brilliant as well - and incredibly simple to set up.

Very happy.

Eero?


Oh, I forgot to get that out of the way...

I need a Eero
I'm holding out for a Eero 'til the end of the night
It's gotta be strong
And It's gotta be fast
And Its's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a Eero
I'm holding out for a Eero 'til the morning light
It's gotta be sure
And it's gotta be soon
And It’s gotta be larger than life!
Larger than life

At this price point I recommend considering the Unifi Amplifi HD which can be had for not much more on ebay. I also abandoned my Virgin Superhub 3 for this & 2 mesh points and it's rock solid. You can get the router on its own for around £100 or with 2 mesh points for the mid 200s. It's a very well regarded make & they do a lot of business networking equipment.

I prefer buzzard.

You not changing your profile to your real name like the others Jeffrey?
Sounds like a clever wee thing, there is nothing worse than paying a premium every month if your not getting the most out of your connection, I think we've all been in a situation where we have settled for whatever we are getting even if its pants just because we can't be bothered with the hassle of phoning, proving your case etc etc.
I know if I was a heavier user and paid some of the expanded prices for my service I'd definitely want something like this to put mind at ease, could save a lot of headaches in the long run.
Definitely one to think about. Thanks for making me aware of it.

No problem I was totally unaware of it until a couple of weeks ago, and we're massively already into the Amazon ecosystem now, so this will fit in nicely.

I've just done a speed test from my upstairs on my Virgin Media 350mb connection and it hit an impressive 25.4Mbps I did contact them, but as expected they made no effort to help, although offered me the chance of a booster, at +£3 a month. Personally I think requesting further expenditure from the customer for something that is clearly an issue with the hub is a bit of a p take, so here I am, putting all hope into the Amazon eero

Do add a short review later on this Amazon mesh Buzz as I'm looking to replace my current Netgear router which I think has a broken gigabit port so I'm down to 3 decent ones which is not really enough :(. I'm considering going wifi-6 but not decided yet. Heat added btw

I'm using a Google WiFi device and had similar results to you (also using a Virgin Hub 3).

What's the app like? that's probably the best thing about Google WiFi is being able to see how much data each device is using in real time and prioritise or restrict them.

You've got a legitimate problem you should haggle mate. Ring VM, ask for retentions, whilst on hold google their competitors' offers page and say you are leaving.because BT offer xy and z, then just sit back and let them try and retain you, it's really easy and if they don't play ball (one person recently offered me 70p compensation for a week without internet) just hangup and redial.

The WiFi on the VM Superhub is pants. The end. I live in a small house and need to use a powerline WiFi booster to get the WiFi into the downstairs toilet less than 25 foot from the router. Fair enough it is through two walls. my TP Link router I have in Spain works through multiple concrete walls and floors down into the street with ease.

Whilst these are good if you have flaky coverage, be aware if you have Sky Q then the Sky boxes (main, mini and boosters) all work as Wifi AP's on a mesh system so maybe worth looking at your config of these if you have Q and having wifi issues.

do you think this might be a bad idea

Sky has it's own internal mesh for the sky viewing side of things. If you reboot a q box you will see a hidden ssid visible for a min or two until it links up.

Thanks for this, Saw the deal yesterday lunchtime, took the plunge and bought it. Came last night, same day Prime, set it up within minutes.

I have a Virgin Hub 3, on my third one. No end of problems with each box, the customer service at Virgin is so horrible that I've let the problems go on for months cos I'd rather deal with those than waiting for Virgin to a) answer the phone and then b) understand that I know what I'm talking about and the problem is with their equipment and then c) hang up on me at a convenient moment.

So with only one evening and morning of use, I can testify that I know have over 113Mb/s on my up to 100Mb/s contract, and all the intermittent connection issues have vanished.

If this stays the same, I'll be ridiculously happy, not least to never have to (try to) speak with Virgin again!

Did you just switch your virgin box to modem mode?

Do the ethernet ports then still work on the hub?

I'm still on hub 2,which is meh, but hub 3 coming on Monday which I'm now worried about!
Yes, popped it onto Modem mode. There's a spare ethernet port on the back of the eero which I plugged my Hive hub into, as it just seemed easier to come direct out of there, plus it then shows up on the eero app.
The first Hub3 box worked fine for about a year, but then it just started resetting itself, which meant it kept losing the network name I'd given it!
I'm assuming you've not paid anything for the Hub3? Just see how you get on with it, and if it's not great, then think about getting something like this eero...

Great thanks,

Yeah didn't pay anything for it but this hub2 is reaching end of its life!
I also have the VM Hub 3 with Ultimate Oomph package so 500mb BB and the WiFi throw was incredibly poor. I went the BT Whole Home route (when Amazon were offering a 2 pack for less than £85 so got 2 and sold one of the discs for £60 making the remaining 3 disc system effectively £110 ish). Works fantastically well (even get well over 100mb in the garden!). Just a shame we have to invest like this further to get decent whole home WiFi but I guess that's what happens when the isp's have decided to get customers it's a race to the bottom price-wise.

The Hub3 is generally reckoned to be even worse than the Hub2. Ask the engineer to leave the old Hub2 with you & to leave it activated just in case you need to revert to it.

Just took delivery of this and must say I'm pretty disappointed.

The above results are from four different rooms in the house (top to bottom: Kitchen, Living Room, Bathroom, Bedroom - with the WiFi , which is a virgin hub 3 I think, the white one anyway, in the bedroom)

As you can see, marginal improvement in the poorest performing rooms (kitchen and bathroom) as well as the bedroom, but that performance drop in the living room is mind-blowing. Frustratingly the upload speeds in all rooms had improvements, but who cares about that?!

As others have commented though, install was ridiculously simple and fast, so points for that. Can't say it was worth the £80 outlay mind

I'm not far behind you mate it's literally just behind, if not on par with the VM Hub.

The ping is fantastic, and the Eero app is showing 384Mbps in, so I'm not sure why I'm being restricted on WiFi heading out.

Based on some arbitrary ytube reviews ive seen while trying to decide on a mesh solution, amplify gets an honourable mention but orbi and nest are the speed champions (albeit more expensive).
From a settings and configuration perspective amplify is probably better suited.
Not arguing a point just adding a bit more info.
I tried the deco M4 3 node mesh with the virgin hub and it was ok saw a few WiFi disconnects. I then swapped it out for a Linksys Velop 3 node mesh I found it a bit cheaper on Amazon warehouse and it's been rock solid
