Why?

It lacks AC2200 and AC3000 so isn't as fast as something like the Netgear Orbi.
Heat added. Is a new version about to come out and that's why so cheap?

Amazon is £69 but for me says "Save £ 3.45 at checkout" maybe accoutn specific but for £65 thats a great price.
I also own Google Wifi, great kit for this price as well! The wifi is so easy to set up and probably the most reliable I've had to date

I would return them if I could. Worst networking equipment I've ever purchased
like anything.. people love and hate.. i prefer to love more than i hate.. keeps me happier
Same price at Amazon.
John Lewis has it same price 2 years warranty
If i currently have a BT hub, does this work with it or replace it? My wifi coverage is shocking and only covers half of my house so looking to fix it at some point.

It would replace the wireless part. You’ll still need the BT hub to act as your DSL modem though

That's unfortunate, Is it still only AC1200?

If it was AC3000 it would still be a decent upgrade.

Thanks Op, seems like Amazon and John Lewis doing it at the same price now too!

Yes but 1-2 weeks for despatch. Means will likely cancel orders when they can’t fulfill. Argos have price matched.

Just curious why do you need such fast speeds. Is it so you can upload deals faster to help the community?

To download large files quickly...
To be able to stream to multiple devices at the same time in the household...

That broadband package gives me decent upload speeds, lower packages offer less. I also have a lot of devices on my wireless network, currently have 3 of these google WiFi units and ordered a 4th to boost it out to the garage/shed where I have gym equipment and currently have to tether my phone to use zwift. The 3 in my house run everything from CCTV to the many tablets, phones, tv’s etc. Have large detached house which is why I need so many units.

AC1200 is fast enough for anyone with a BB connection under 1Gbps....I see my 350Mbps virgin connection maxed through Wi-Fi on my Google Home mesh in most places in home

I have the same connection, that's good to know. I would have to sit on top of my Virgin Media Hub 3 to get that speed.

Google WiFi app gives you nice usage stats as well, viewable per device if you want to see which devices are hogging all the bandwidth. I've just picked up one of these Standalone packs from Argos to increase my count to 3, should give me a little more reach to the outbuildings.
