With the 5G technology stepping in, and Bluetooth gearing towards new trends, why not take a step forward towards Wi-Fi 6 as well. Who doesn’t need faster speeds and look for efficient data deliveries? At CES this year, both of your wishes have come into reality. Plenty of Wi-Fi 6 compatible devices were seen taking the limelight. And worry not this time, they have cared for your budget as well. And that’s definitely the arresting part.
Better in quality, while being lesser in price, is all that we crave for. Last year CES promises coming true this time. Multiple routers have been launched that are lighter on the pockets but surely offer better speeds and efficiency. Doubting my word? You can even search for models below $200. Dragging it down a little more, a low-end TP-Link is presently costing just $70. And this year, the successors of high-speed routers and mesh systems are announced within the range of $100 to $200.
Talking about the Consumer Electronic Show, 2020, Netgear presented the Nighthawk Mesh, taking the credit of a pioneer mesh router offering Wi-Fi 6 while being really affordable. On figures, a two-pack shall cost you only $230, and the speed it’ll offer shall be 400 Mbps.
When it comes to mesh routers, the need for faster speeds become inevitable. The more bandwidth is occupied, the slowly your data gets delivered, hence, the more patience you need to deal with. It has become a must part of bigger houses. An up-gradation of which has come first in the priority list of service providers. Lining up in the row, TP-Link, Arris as well as D-Link have also added Wifi 6 to their mesh routers. Apple leading them all has already put in the technology in its products. iPhone 11 and 11 Pro has already been sold equipped with the upgraded Wi-Fi. Not staying back, Lenovo, Samsung, and Asus have also announced incorporating the WiFi 6 support on their laptops.
Clarifying the benefit a little more, WiFi 6 is more about allowing more devices to be connected to your home internet and working at a good speed rather than boosting the internet for a single device. Still, it would take some months before this technology makes a home in your pockets and offices.
Crowding your mind more with some technical terms and cracking near future suspense, the next in line is WiFi 6E – though a dream at present! It surely expands the current day WiFi speed and capacity. The swath at which it shall operate will be 6GHz. But to experience that, you need to have a lot of patience as there isn’t any timeline announced with surety yet.
