Whole home mesh wifi system. Includes 3 discs to completely cover your home and eliminate wifi dead spots.

I've been watching the BT Whole home system also from Currys that was £99.99 for 2 discs and is now down to £89.99. I need 3 discs though to boost wifi throughout my new home and into my Man Cave garage and was keeping tabs on the 3 disc system which is currently £169.99 in Currys.

Upon reading reviews the Tp-Link system appears to be slightly better but at the normal rrp of over £230 I couldn't justify spending the extra. However, at only £10 more now than the BT system I'm finally pulling the trigger and buying! Hope this helps some others out too.

Can't you just buy 2 of the bt 2 disc systems and give you 4 discs for the same price?
Yes you could I suppose. Although I have read that the TP ones are slightly better in terms of performance. 3 will more than suffice for my needs but each to their own I guess
Can't decide between the Deco and BT.
Only have a relatively small property, single level. But would like reception to reach out into the garden if possible.

Leaning towards the Deco as my router is TP Link anyway but wondering if it would be overkill.

Deco £162 with cashback. BT £80-£100.

Hmm..

Addendum. Ordered TP Link.

I have a large (ish) home which normally suffers poor wifi due to loads on metal (EML) in the walls. I previously went for the BT home version and I'm really happy with it. Consitent wifi throughout the house and garage.
Having used both, Deco much better than BT.

Hi! If you don’t mi d me asking, why is it much better? Is it just better coverage, or does it have better features etc?

Exactly what I did yesterday after weeks of deliberating on these systems. TCB was 10% so it should end up at around £161 for 4.

So far I've only deployed 2 discs and have to say I'm very impressed - admittedly though it has only been a day. I presumed I'd need 3 discs but I have 1 in my lounge at the front of the house and 1 in the 4th bedroom at the rear and the entire house (1930's semi, brick internal walls) seems well covered. Both are plugged into ethernet rather than linking wirelessly which probably helps, but I was fully expecting to have to place 1 in the 2nd bedroom roughly half way between the two units. So far they're exceeding expectations so I may end up with a redundant 2-pack, but we'll see!

This is a good price for these though, if it had been yesterday I would probably have ended up with these as they have more features like dual ethernet ports (although there are privacy concerns as you need to register them using a TP-Link account, according to one review).

Deco ones are easier to set up with the APP and has better coverage. You can also adjust the deco units via the app for your priorities, eg. streaming, browsing, so wi-fi gets diverted to that preference first. You also have parental features and antivirus if you want (I don't bother with those). You can place the units further apart from each other than the BT ones and they don't lose connection. BT ones kept losing connection at random times. I bought the BT ones when they were advertised on here a few months ago but got sent back pretty swiftly. Purchased these a week ago and are much better. Deco ones are also smaller and less obtrusive.

I have these, and they are very good. I'm getting the full 70mb download that my ISP offer in most rooms, now.

The only downside is that it has started interfering with my Nest thermostat. Previously I had no connection issues with Nest, but now I've configured 3 of these mesh routers, the Nest thermostat would constantly lose its connection with the Heat Link, as this happened wirelessly.

So while these devices are good at bathing your house in wifi, it isn't such a good thing that it interferes with other wireless systems in the house.

Still, I'd rather have reliable internet than central heating anyhow.
