Google Wifi is easy to use, more affordable than competing mesh routers and delivers solid performance (if you get the three-pack).
The days of getting a single router and then filling in Wi-Fi dead zones with an extender might be finally over. Google’s Wifi (that’s how Google spells the name) mesh-router kit is an easy, fast and, at less than $200 for a three-pack, relatively inexpensive way to cover a home with wireless data.
But you’ll definitely need more than one unit to work effectively, as individual Google Wifi units have shorter ranges than those of any other mesh-router system we’ve tested. You’ll also need a phone or tablet, and a Google account, to set them up.
