I disagree with the home use part. You will get better speeds across longer distances and especially where interference is involved with WIFI 6. For example, I can get 250 mbps over WIFI across my entire house. With WIFI 6, I can actually get 600+ consistently. Is this important for the average user, no; however, for me it is.
It's been really good and a huge upgrade over the AirPort Extreme. Coverage is exceptional in a 4,000 sq ft house and speeds are very good. Now I just need to run some Cat6 so I can put some things on gigabit ethernet. I have fiber and Speedtest shows that my Mac mini is doing quite well at around 410 Mbps down and 474 Mbps up over WiFi.
I figure I can't lose spending $129.99 and keeping it for a few years once WiFi6 or 6E becomes more affordable.
There’s a ****** $100 router WalMart sells with WiFi 6, it’s utter *******. Just because the chipset supports WiFi 6 doesn’t make it a half-decent device.
You need coverage, speed, and reliability for the home. You can get a Google WiFi, Orbi, or Eero now. No need to wait two more years with mediocre home WiFi to try and snag something with WiFi 6 on the tech specs, when that won’t even translate into a tangible benefit for use in a home.
