AmpliFi is one of the many brands in the mesh Wi-Fi router market, first launching its cubed router with a circular display in 2016. As the consumer brand for Ubiquiti Networks, AmpliFi today announced an expansion of its product line with the AmpliFi Instant whole-home Wi-Fi system, which is smaller than its previous router and more streamlined, since it can be set up in under two minutes.

amplifi instant
AmpliFi designed the new router to be compact and instantly accessible to customers who want to upgrade and improve the Wi-Fi in their homes. AmpliFi Instant uses 802.11ac Wi-Fi with both 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz radios, and comes with a WAN port and a Gigabit Ethernet port on the router, as well as a Gigabit Ethernet port on the MeshPoint extension.

Like other mesh systems, AmpliFi Instant comes with a base router that you can extend the range of using a MeshPoint extension device. This allows Wi-Fi coverage to be evenly and reliably spread across your home, without potential disruption from Wi-Fi extenders.

amplifi app
During the quick setup process, AmpliFi Instant connects to an iOS or Android app, where users can also configure the router, check out their network's stability, adjust parental controls and remote access features, and provide access to guests. The installation process is sped up thanks to the MeshPoint, which comes pre-paired with the router so customers simply have to plug it in where Wi-Fi is needed most.

AmpliFi Instant launches today for $99.99 for just the router, while the AmpliFi Instant Kit is available for $179.99 for a router and MeshPoint. The device is being sold both on AmpliFi's website and on Amazon.

It’s so cheap too for what you get. And I’m not kidding when I say Google is always updating and improving the app.

A 3 piece system is less than 250 and a 4th is 99 bucks. No brainer, strong fast secure WiFi
It’s only cheap if you don’t value privacy at all.

I’m not even sure what this means.
The reason Google WiFi is so cheap is because you pay for it in both dollars and data.

I use Gmail. I don't pay Google for Gmail, but Google still makes a profit off me. It's a nice little exchange, I get arguably the best webmail client there is for no dollar cost; and Google gets to mine all my emails for data, which they collect into a comprehensive profile of my interests, demographics, and habits; which Google sells to advertisers. In this case, I find the exchange to be worth it.

Google does the same with Google WiFi. Sure they're probably selling the hardware at cost or even a small loss, but you still pay for it with your data. You may think it's worth it, like I think it's worth it for Gmail. But make no mistake - we are still paying with our data.

Google isn't the only one. It's the same reason the Amazon Echo is so cheap.

I know I’m gonna catch heat for this but I’ve switched from a TC to google WiFi and 4 nodes.
LOL, why would you catch heat for using a superior product? Apple isn't the best anymore at making anything. You're fine dude.

Just my take, for those mentioning Google WiFi: Are you freaking crazy? After all the revelations about what Google is doing behind our backs and under the covers, you want to hand then the opportunity to inspect every packet of network traffic in and out of your home? Really? Sure, I bet it is the best bang for the buck ... for a reason, and it ain't 'cause they're generous folks, either.

There are other ways to pay for something, other than dollars.
