The firmware that comes with it is great, but when Google (big brother) updates them, it makes it pretty average (i.e. equivalent to any £15.00 router). If so, why spend £174.00. I have one, and (paid £230.00 per pair) and waiting for my "Karma" to finish (say another 6 months to make it 2 years) and then throw away this crap.


What a muppet! Great product, no issues here.

Got three of these. Cover a large house over three storeys quite well, no seeming dead spots.

Why does the update make it worse?

Do you know what the lowest speed you get is roughly? And if you do, what construction are your walls? Just trying to compare speeds with what I currently get to see if it's worth it. Cheers.
Got google wifi a few months ago - tried various routers over the years and these are the best I've had. I would recommend them....
Are these not a posh WiFi extender with a couple of extra security features?

seen them and true bt dish ones and wondering what’s the point as they seem expensive

What are you on about? None of that made any sense.

One of the biggest selling points is the constant firmware update. Get all security updates direct from Google to ensure your WiFi is secure, unlike most other routers

So in my bedroom, connected to the point in my kitchen with my phone, I get 5mbps. Installed a point in the bedroom and I get 50mbps (internet is 76mbps)

Pretty good uplift I think.


I can also monitor my internet speed. It self tests and keeps a record. I now know I need to call bt and complain that my fiber to home is not quite performing as it should...

wish these came in a 3 pack like in the states. 2 is not enough and 4 is too many. might just have to bite the bullet and sell the spare on ebay
Really awesome solution for consumers - but if you are a little more ‘tech savvy’ I would check out the Ubiquiti UniFi access points that are a similar price but arguably much better performance. Keep in mind they don’t offer the same simplicity

You can't use cat5 on that extension. Not is the app as good
I ordered bt home WiFi twin for £99. Do you think this one worth extra £75?

I'm in the same boat. I'd like another, but don't really want two more!

Not really, no.
Have you tried looking this information up on the internet?

Well if hard wire is only plus then i will be ok with bt.

I think you may need to keep your router with BT. This runs off my open reach modem. I believe from the reviews that the Google ones get the best connection strength of any mesh system. The app is also great.
