Why two are £99.99 and three £189 with something worth £34 'free' doesn't make sense to me.

A duo and single is cheaper than a trio but with nothing 'free'.
1 month of Google Play Music is included so surely worth nothing.

Buy two twin packs, sell a single for £40 and buy a Google Home Mini and you are a few pounds up.

Typical BT.

5% Quidco too

Isn't this stuff for rich folk who have massive houses?

So what are the complaints about pricing?

Been looking at this for a while. Hoping for a change of price through out this Black Friday week. Also been reading that unless you house is 3 story plus then you could be better off with just 2 discs. Has anyone tried this with 2 discs in a larger property?

But would 2 twin packs work with each other? Are all of the access points the same, or is one of them a "master", which has to be connected to your router? I suspect it wouldn't work, if you had 2 masters on one network.

This is mesh networking, not a WiFi extender. There's no master/secondary relationship. Yes one needs to be connected to the router to get the internet connection but then the other two (or three) all communicate with each other

Is it better to get this or to just get a better router

How big is your house to need three of these? We have a decent sized house that the Sky router struggled with but the new BT hub does fine.

Now google will be able to listen to your conversations in every room

True but also more money!

Not really that good a deal, since you could get the Twin Pack + Home Mini fo3 ~£135

GoogleWiFi wifi network is far worse. its only AC1200 vs this being AC2500

Lol. No its not.

What’s the difference between this mesh system or setting up two routers with Ethernet cables at either side of the house?. I am thinking of running my virgin Superhub 3 in modem mode and either having a mesh system or runnning two Asus routers using a wire connection (ac3200). Any help would be helpful before bitting the bullet. Looking to achieve coverage and speed.

plus google WiFi only has 2x2 mimo which means only 2 antennas vs whole home which has mimo 4x4 which is 4 antennas offering better coverage and bandwidth. Google WiFi also wants to do all the functions of your router such as DNS, DHCP and port-forwarding meaning you have to switch your router to modem only mode if it supports it. If you want to use your router for DHCP and port-forwarding you are only allowed to use one Google WiFi unit, google won't let you use more than one and also disables many features. Whole home is practically plug and play working with any existing router in your property the only requirement for better integration is that you switch off your routers wifi.

They differ from using 2 routers in the sense that they automatically move you between the 3 discs based on which one provides the best signal/speed for your device as well changing between 2.4ghz and 5ghz automatically depending on how far away you are. They also offer Ethernet back-haul meaning you don't have to have them linked to each other over WiFi you can link them both up by Ethernet depending on how far away you want them.

If the other person sets up the second router with the same SSID and password as his first, then he'll achieve the same thing. Unless I'm missing something obvious?

Currently have the VM Superhub 3 in the lounge, with port 1 running to a 24 port gigabit switch under the stairs via Cat6.

In the other side of the house, there is a cheapo £40 Netgear ADSL router running in access point mode (for some reason was £30 cheaper than the designated access point equivalent), connected via Cat6 to the switch under the stairs.

Both the 2.4ghz and 5ghz networks have the same SSID and password as their VM equivalents. If you use an app (such as Netscanner) you can see that your phone moves to whichever access point offers the better signal.

The whole point of these mesh networks is to move you easily between access points as well as give you better coverage, each disc constantly checks to make sure your on the disc with the best speed and band. Normal router setup you are a reliant on your phone or WiFi device making the choice to switch to the more powerful access point which often doesn't happen. Whole home does all the work automatically deciding which disc your device connects to something two normal routers can't do.

prove it Google WiFi 2x2 mimo AC1200 Vs BT Whole Home 4x4 mimo AC2500 show me where i am wrong

I've had this for about 8 months as there seems to be a lot of RF interference in my area, the bedroom is also above an extension which is effectively a double wall resulting in wifi being very hit and miss.

It works really well. Does need a reboot every couple of months but other than that I wander around the house and outside and the signal is much better than the single router I had.

Compared the different systems when I bought mine and the BT just won on value/performance. They have upgraded the firmware a couple of times so still improving and my understanding is a mesh network is much more resilient to RF interference than just a bridge system. I tried bridges they never worked and kept dropping signal and gave up, the BT just works, not cheap but I wouldn't go back.

When my brother use to live in the flat next floor down we shared wifi. Loads of people in these flats share with neighbours. I know 2 of my other neighbours share the cost in the next block over. My mum has a projector so we sometimes put the projector in the garden and streamed movies.

£12.98 for delivery (possibly because we are in the Highlands). No thanks!

Same deal on Curry's - free home delivery. Much better
