Google has announced the launch of a new WiFi router, called the Google OnHub, the device is designed to make using a WiFi router easier and also bring improved performance over standard routers.
The Google OnHub is designed to be simple to setup, it will give you WiFi speeds of up to 1900 Mbps and it features 13 antennas, six 2.4GHz and six 5GHz, there is also another that is designed to monitor congestion.
Ugh…not again. You get home at the end of the day, and sit down to stream a new movie or upload vacation photos — and your Wi-Fi slows to a crawl or just stops working. Instead of relaxing in front of the screen or sharing those photos with friends, you spend it unplugging and re-plugging cords, trying to decipher blinking lights, or contemplating a call to customer support.
While we count on Wi-Fi more than ever to be entertained, productive, and stay connected, we’re streaming and sharing in new ways our old routers were never built to handle. So today, with our partner TP-LINK, we’re launching OnHub, a different kind of router for a new way to Wi-Fi. Instead of headaches and spotty connections, OnHub gives you Wi-Fi that’s fast, secure, and easy to use.
The OnHub also comes with a mobile app which will be available on both Android and iOS, the app will tel you how much bandwidth each device is using.
The Google OnHub was developed in partnership with TP-Link and Google has said that they are also working on another OnHub device with Asus.
Google will launch their new WiFi Router on the 31st of August in the US and the device will retail for $199, you can find out more information at the link below.
