If you have a simple router that you purchased for like $20 then you might face some problems with it. The issue of dead Wi-Fi spots in the home is widely documented and startups like Luma and Eero have created their Wi-Fi products to take care of this problem. Now, the big gun in jumping in. Netgear today launched the Orbi Wi-Fi system which promises to blanket your entire home with wireless internet but the privilege does come at a price.
The new Orbi Wi-Fi system from Netgear uses Tri-band Wi-Fi to eliminate dead spots and provide reliable and faster connections. Setting up the Orbi is easy through a few clicks in a browser or a mobile device.
Customers get a router and a satellite with each Orbi kit. Both of them are pre-paired together so that customers can easily set up the product out of the box.
Netgear says that an Orbi system with a satellite and route can provide coverage in an area up to 4,000 square feet. The company is also going to offer additional kits for those who have homes bigger than 4,000 square feet.
The company is going to release the Orbi Wi-Fi system with one satellite and router, it will be sold via major retailers in the United States starting next month with a price tag of $399.99.
