The new wifi 6 standard models are probably around the corner soon...
Which is fair enough. It should still be more than enough for the next few years at least with it maxing at 1Gbps and cheaper than any updated model
Insane HEAT for 3 pack!!!
£189.05

Op needs to amend cheaper price, outstanding value for 3 pack even if new one is announced soon.

Rrp currently £329.
What do these improve over repeaters/access points you can get?

What do these improve over repeaters/access points you can get?




Basically everything! I was sceptical before getting my BT whole home system but the proof of the pudding is in the eating so to speak. Got one in the loft to work the Ring Floodlight Cam and have been known to get 130mbps speed on the patio! (with Virgin Media an their top speed package BTW). Had a repeater up there before and it was absolutely useless (huge lag on the Ring Cam).

Sounds like exactly what I need, will be moving soon and want to do it right from the get go. Thanks for your help
What's the difference between this and the bt whole home wifi @ £151 for the trio? I've read the bt is quicker

Can't comment on this one as I've never used it but I would highly recommend the BT system. IME it works faultlessly and, IMO, looks nicer too whilst also being quite a bit cheaper!

The Google system is the best of the mesh systems out there.
Gets excellent reviews all round...

Reviews seem remarkably similar to the BT whole home system. I don't think posters should fall into the trap of offering opinion as fact unless they have extensive knowledge of the competing products, personally. What other wifi mesh system do you have peronal experience of using?

Good info, thanks. Surprised herby247 didn't post this info.

j/k
I have the BT whole home. I have to say they are great. Minimal drops in connection and is almost full speed wherever in the home i am. I use with a vodafone router whose Wifi i switch off so there are no clashes. I have a 4 bed detached and 3 is more than enough. They dont look the nicest but not ugly by any means. I just like the GWifi better

Why am i getting this? It has got marginally better reviews in those i have read. The difference in price is only £50, although i got my refurbished BT 3 pack for £100. And i am a snob and i think it will compliment my white fur couches.........

According to their FCC listing the new "Nest WiFi" devices (likely announced on the 15th) do not support WiFi 6(ax).

Been using them with BT broadband for a few years with no problems. The only thing they don't include out of the box is the VDSL modem but you can use the Openreach supplied one for that role or get a cheap alternative like the Netgear DM200.
Edited by: "OrangeTeapot" 3rd Oct
Ive read you can use most ISP provided routers. You just have to switch on modem only mode, or like my Vodafone router, switch off the wifi.

I have 6 of them. Disconnected and lying waste as does wasn't great. Even 2 of them in direct line of sight world struggle to connect to each other with in 6 to 7 feet forget give internet. Used their help line the asked to try closer! Useless nodes such need to be connected via ethernet all around the house. Work in progress. Please note I bought 6 of these damn things and lying waste now.

You’re very wrong homeboy.
disable the wireless on your home hub, plug this into the RJ45 port and bosh, you’re done

You can even give the Google WiFi the same ssid and password as your “old” wireless network so that you don’t have to go round and put the new PW into all your devices.

Ever heard of getting a refund?
Failing that, buy new ones and take these back with that receipt. Bosh.
Have 3 of these. Set them up 12 months ago and never had to do anything since.

I imported a 3 pack as UK wasn't doing 3 pack then.
Speeds aren't the greatest. See many WiFi forums. With my bt ultrafast 2 fibre optic to home broadband I get 350mbps down and 50mbps up without needing these Google WiFi. Sometimes even on WiFi! But never with these Google units. Even 60 or 100mbps is an ask!

Did that, wasted an entire weekend trying to set this up on a home hub 6. Lots of info online about issues bt/google.
Great price, but Google wifi isn't the fastest mesh product out there. Unless you are particularly keen on the sytling of the Google over BT Whole Home, I'd go for the cheaper, faster BT product.

If you've mixed a UK unit in with those imports, that might explain it. They don't 'mesh' together from mixed regions.
You'd have to have a full US or full UK setup.

I spoke to Google directly. There are forum posts how to work them together. They linked after wired set up but then lost the link later.
I’ve got the BT one using Sky Fibre and it’s completely changed my life, faster Wi-Fi speeds available from the front garden to the back in an extended 3 bed property. Constant updates by BT and never had any issues with streaming films or gaming

Google mesh was expensive at the time so opted for the cheaper BT home Wi-Fi

It works as I'm with Virgin.
Just disable WiFi on the virgin hub, plug one of these into the hub and your good to go.

I have three of these... One in the living room, one in the conservatory and one in the master bedroom.

I use to get around 40mb/s WiFi in my bedroom but now get 110mb so it's definitely improved coverage for me.

What is your Virgin package? I'm on 350mb using powerline adapters and get nowhere near 100mb lol. Will these get me close to 350mb?

Not strictly true, if you make UK unit the primary one attached to your modem/router, the US units will take on the appropriate configuration and behave as they were UK ones.

We initally had a US import 3-unit bundle setup and then added a UK one afterwards. Couldn't get the UK unit linked properly to the rest initially. Had to make the UK unit the primary one and added the rest to that as additional access points in the mesh. Had to factory reset etc but has been working fine since.

Interesting. I wonder if this was a firmware change along the way as it definitely wasn’t the case in 2016/2017. Baffled the sheeeet out of me
