Google WiFi Latest News & Update: Smallest And Cheapest, Outperformed Eero; Fast Internet Speed With Parental Controls; Can Prioritize Other Users?
Internet is now considered as an important possession as many people rely on it for some reasons. Most information is now gathered by connecting to internet. That is why Google has created Google Wifi to help its loyal customers' internet signal strong within their houses or businesses.
Ideally a Google Wifi is a mesh-router system which creates a "mesh" network, where if multiple units have been installed, have the ability to communicate with each other to provide a strong connection. It can provide a fast signal throughout the house instead of a single Wi-Fi router which might not probably reach a certain area of a certain house.
What AreThe Key Specifications Of Google Wifi?
A single-unit of Google Wifi can cover a 1,500 square-foot home, while a three-pack will run at about a 4,500square-foot residence. Each unit is a compact, unobtrusive cylinder that can be placed anywhere in the house which looks like a white-painted two hockey pucks which don't look like a piece of computer equipment.

It also has an AC1200 2x2 Wave 2 capabilities and supports both 2.4GHz and 5GHz 802.11a/b/g/n/ac networking. It is secured with the standard WPA2-PSK protocol.
Remarkable Features Compared To Others
Google WiFi is not only small and convenient to set-up but it is by far the cheapest mesh-router system. It costs $129 for a single unit but can be purchased on a three-pack that cost $299 unlike Eero and Orbi as these cost $499 and $399 respectively, The Verge added.
The internet speed is also worth the note."The system also had excellent signal hand off, allowing you to walk around your house, seamlessly connecting from one unit to another without getting disconnected from the internet."
It even has parental controls which pause Wi-Fi devices on a specific device or multiple devices at the same time by grouping them together, as Computer World further added. It also can prioritize other WiFi users and easily create a guest network.
Indeed Google has nailed internet equipment that is not only small but cheap. Do you think it is worthy of its price?
