Short answer, not worth the money.
You're always better off getting an access point
Was expecting free Broadband over Christmas and looks like it will be a while before that happens so really this kit is of no use to me!

If you a have a well equipped network, WiFi 6 devices, etc, I think so. They should all have 2.5/5/10Gb ports though. Skimping out a bit on a very expensive router.

10g routing would add at least £200 on top. It's very expensive still.

I'd be happy with 2.5, but happier with the above also

So do I get that speed on this without upgrading and will it send the Wiifi around my whole house ?

The 5ghz band will be stronger than your regular ISP routers. The range overall will be much better. The main benefit is the speed at which devices connect to the router as the available bandwidth is portioned up to suit each device's need. I have VM 500MB and really benefit from a router like this. If you have 30MB you won't really see much difference in speed. If you have a massive house or if the router can only be located on the bottom floor in one corner, you may still need a mesh device to repeat the signal from the router seamlessly. (a wifi booster isn't as effective and are becoming a waste of time now as you end up with two SSID's). If you don't want to bother getting the mesh (e.g. BT mesh Discs) at the moment you can always keep the 2.4ghz and 5ghz signals separate (turn of the smart wifi feature, which automatically allocates the appropriate frequency based on the device's speed requirements). This will mean that you can allocate the 5ghz network to your static devices that are in range (5ghz is faster but over a much shorter distance), and your mobile devices or devices far away from the router can be connected to the 2.4ghz band which will easily give you 100MBit connectivity throughout a large home.

TL:DR: If you have lots of smart devices like plugs, bulbs and alexas or are planning on having loads in the future, go for a wifi 6 router. If not, get the £100-150 AC router from one of the big names like asus, tp-link and netgear.
BTW from someone with a hell of a lot of knowledge about these routers (see the deals i've posted), this price is really good if you want to fork out for one of the top-end wifi 6 routers available. Compared to the price it has been this is one of the best prices I've seen it at. Ignore the temperature.
