Wi-Fi 6 is a new Wi-Fi standard, with many Wi-Fi 6-ready devices already available in the market. Wi-Fi 6 allows for 30% faster speeds on Wi-Fi 6-enabled devices (such as phones, laptops, and tablets), and for more devices on a single network without slowing down Wi-Fi speeds. Wi-Fi 6 also improves battery life and provides greater security with WPA3.
With Google Fiber 2 Gig, customers will receive the Google Fiber Multi-Gig Router and tri-band Mesh Extender. Both support the Wi-Fi 6 standard. A dual-band device has a 2.4 Ghz band and 5 Ghz band, but our tri-band Mesh Extender adds an additional 5 Ghz band for devices to connect to. The tri-band Mesh Extender extends Wi-Fi coverage, connecting to the router and creating a seamless mesh Wi-Fi network that lets you roam throughout your home without having to reconnect or restart your device.
