One of the first Wi-Fi 6 mesh networking kits available, the Netgear Orbi WiFi 6 (RBK852) takes its place at the top of the food chain, becoming one of the best mesh routers available.

Netgear’s two-piece Orbi RBK852 hits the mark for Wi-Fi 6 homes with a mix of good throughput, a dedicated backhaul channel for data from the satellites to the router as well as extra online security.

Far from perfect, the Orbi RBK852 is large and pricey – so expensive it may be a reach for some digital households. But if you want unbeatable performance throughout your home, it's one of the best Wi-Fi 6 routers you can get and one of the best mesh routers on the market. We even name it the mesh systems to get among the best gaming routers. Our Netgear Orbi WiFi 6 (RBK852) review proves that it's the Wi-Fi 6 mesh system to beat.

Editor's Note: We periodically update our reviews to make sure that pricing and information is up to date. The rating and recommendations in our Netgear Orbi WiFi 6 (RBK852) review is unchanged from when it originally published in November of 2020. 

Netgear Orbi WiFi 6 (RBK852) review: Pricing and availability

It may seem like alphabet soup, but the RBK852 kit comes with two units: a preset RBR850 router and RBS850 satellite. They continue to use Orbi’s tri-band topology where data moves to devices on either the 2.4- or 5GHz bands and data travels back to the router over the system’s second 5GHz channel. This dedicated backhaul channel can potentially reduce congestion and data packets banging into each other.

It’s among the most expensive networking gear you can buy at $700 for the router and satellite that can cover about 5,000 square feet, according to Netgear. With the router and two satellites, the RBK853 kit costs $1,000. On its own, an extra RBS850 satellite costs $380. 

The Netgear Orbi Wi-Fi 6 system is also available in a 3-pack and 4-pack, or you can purchase additional satellite add-on units individually.

  • 2-Pack Orbi AX6000 Mesh WiFi 6 System (RBK852) - $699
  • 3-Pack Orbi AX6000 Mesh WiFi 6 System (RBK853) - $999
  • 4-Pack Orbi AX6000 Mesh WiFi 6 System (RBK854) - $1,299
  • Single Add-on Orbi AX6000 Mesh WiFi 6 Satellite (RBS850) - $379

Available in packages of two, three or four units, the Orbi Wi-Fi 6 AX6000 system can cover a lot of area. The 2-pack seen in our review can cover up to 5,000 square feet, while the 3- and 4-unit packages cover 7,500 and 10,000 square feet, respectively. And if you find yourself needing more coverage, you can always expand your mesh system with an additional Orbi satellite unit, which adds 2,500 square feet of coverage to whatever Orbi AX6000 system it's added to.  

And, since all of the Orbi Wi-Fi 6 AX6000 options are designed to operate with the same range and performance, we're confident in recommending any of these options just as strongly as we do the 2-pack featured in our Netgear Orbi WiFi 6 (RBK852) review.

Netgear Orbi WiFi 6 (RBK852) review: Design

Netgear updates its Orbi mesh networking kits for the Wi-Fi 6 (aka 802.11ax) era with the Home Tri-Band Mesh WiFi 6 System. It’s a lot easier to call it the RBK852. Like its predecessors, the RBK852 gear is big and continues with the tall, oval cooling tower look that makes them hard to hide. Both the RBR850 router and RBS850 satellite measure 10.0 x 7.5 x 2.8 inches, making them enormous compared to the likes of the TP-Link Deco X20 or Google Nest WiFi

Still, the RBK852 devices can sit on a bookshelf or desk, but there’s no built-in provision for wall mounting them. However, Netgear breaks new ground by offering a wall mounting bracket ($19) for its devices, instead of relying on third party accessories.

Both the router and satellite have a single LED band near the bottom, serving as a status indicator. When the device is starting up, it blinks white and remains blue when data is freely flowing back and forth. When the light is purple, there’s something wrong because it is offline and requires attention.

Inside each unit are eight smart antennas that aren’t replaceable or aimable. With its Qualcomm Networking Pro 1200 chip, the router and satellite supports 4X4 streams of data. Using the latest MU-MIMO technology to support lots of connections and beamforming to tailor the signal to each device’s needs, the system is capable of moving a theoretical 6Gbps of data back and forth. 

The router has a single 2.5 gigabit per second (Gbps) WAN input port for use with the newest modems. Both the router and satellite have four 1 Gbps LAN ports for connecting things like a printer and NAS storage, but no USB port. Both have a recessed reset button.

Netgear Orbi WiFi 6 (RBK852) review: Performance

The Orbi RBK852 uses Qualcomm’s newest Networking Pro 1200 Wi-Fi chip with 1GB of RAM and 512MB of capacity for storing firmware and settings. It’s all powered by a quad-core processor that runs at a maximum of 2GHz. It has an AX6000 rating.

Overall, the RBK852 set provided excellent throughput on most of our tests using Ixia’s IxChariot networking benchmark software, which created a busy Wi-Fi network in my 100-year old 3,500-square-foot home. It easily outpaced Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) and many Wi-Fi 6 routers. 

With just the RBR850 router set up, it moved 883.6Mbps to the receiving device 15-feet away. While this is off the pace set by high-performance routers, like the Netgear Nighthawk AX8 (RAX80) (at 1.389Gbps), it easily beat out other mesh kits, like the TP-Link Deco X20 (at 622.1Mbps) and the Arris SURFboard mAX Pro (at 820.3Mbps). 

This throughput dropped off quickly to just 124.4Mbps at 50-feet, where the Deco X20 took the lead by sending 255.4Mbps to the test system. This throughput trend held up at 75-feet, where the Deco X20 still led with 112.7Mbps versus 85.9Mbps for the Orbi RBR850. It lost contact at 85 feet, 10-feet short of the Deco X20’s 95-foot range.

The Orbi RBR850 router’s ability to punch a strong signal through walls and ceilings was unequaled. It delivered 782.9Mbps through a wall 20-feet from the router and moved 670.1Mbps through a ceiling to a room directly upstairs from the router. By contrast, the Deco X20 could only manage 556.5Mbps and 320.5Mbps on the same tests.

With the RBS850 satellite online, the mesh network came close to filling my 100-year old 3,500 square foot house. To start, with the satellite on the same floor but 40 feet away and the receiving test machine a farther 50-feet away, it delivered a disappointing 39.1Mbps, versus 125.8Mbps we saw in our Asus ZenWiFi AX (XT8) review. This rose to 405.5Mbps when the satellite was set up on a floor above the router and the test machine was 40-feet away. By contrast, the ZenWiFi AX pushed a similar 389.3Mbps. A third Orbi device might have done the trick at my home.

Over a week of heavy use, the RBK852 kit worked well for everything from watching a Twitch gaming feed to checking email to downloading large files. It passed our saturation test by delivering high-quality video to an iPad Pro tablet while a Macbook Air was playing an Internet radio station, a ThinkPad T470 was viewing videos and an HP dragonfly notebook moved data onto and off of a network-attached RAID storage system. 

While the router used 11.2 watts and the satellite used 9.1-watts, the network is moderately expensive to operate. Its annual estimated cost for electricity is $24.40 a year if you pay the national average of 13 cents per kilowatt-hour of electricity. That’s about what it costs to use the Asus ZenWiFi AX kit, but $10 a year less than the Arris SURFboard Max two-piece kit.

Netgear Orbi WiFi 6 (RBK852) review: Setup

If you’ve ever set up an Orbi router, you’ll feel right at home with the RBK852. Like its predecessors, it uses Netgear’s Orbi app. If you’re new to Orbi, the app’s illustrated steps are easy to follow. There are apps for iOS-based iPhones and iPads as well as Android systems but both are vertically oriented with no way to use it in landscape mode.

I started by plugging the RBR850 router’s AC adapter into a power outlet and its WAN port into my broadband modem using the included patch cable. Then, I plugged in the RBS850 satellite about 50-feet away. Using the network name and password printed on the router’s sleeve, I connected to it using my iPad Pro and fired up the Orbi app. After creating an account with Netgear, I snapped the QR code on the router’s sleeve to identify the device. After a minute, the app found the router and satellite.

The app started its setup routine by asking me if I wanted to use the iPad’s TouchID to log in and require two-factor authentication for an extra layer of security. Happily, the system required that I change the administrative password. (Many don't, creating a big gap in security for users who don't know to change their passwords when setting up a new router.) This password change was followed by asking two verification questions.

After restarting, the RBR850 base unit let me change the network’s name and password to something familiar and updated its firmware. Finally, it asked me if I wanted to add a satellite, which took a minute to find and configure. All told, it took 12 minutes to create a house-wide network and both the router and satellite worked on the first try. The router put out 185Mbps while the satellite managed 165Mbps from my 200Mbps connection.

Netgear Orbi WiFi 6 (RBK852) review: Configuration

Like so many mesh kits and previous Orbi devices, the center of attention for making changes is the accompanying Netgear Orbi WiFi System app. Its Dashboard is easy to read and use but the app offers less configuration potential than using a connected browser. 

The app’s main screen shows the basics with the network’s online status as well as the number of satellites and connected devices. There’s a section for what’s connected and the included Armor security software. If you want to see how fast it’s running, tap the Internet Speed section to get a Web speedometer. 

Dig a level down under the device security section and you can change the network’s name and password, or share that information via a QR code. There are tools for  adding a satellite and rebooting the network, and there’s a place to update the system’s firmware.

To really get into the nitty gritty of the Orbi RBK852 kit, you need to log on via a Web browser interface. There’s a useful main page dashboard as well as Basic and Advanced sections. In other words, there’s something everyone.

The categories in the basic menu include things like Internet, adjustments for IP address, port aggregation and Domain Name Server selection, as well as Wireless for changing the network’s name and password, data channels and the encryption method. The Orbi online interface lets you add an extra satellite in a step-by-step fashion. 

While many won’t miss it, there’s no provision for heavy duty optimization. In other words, forget about extending the data width to 160MHz channels or changing the fragmentation threshold. There’s also no provision for adjusting the transmission signal strength.

A big plus is that the Orbi RBK852 kit comes with the company’s Armor security package. With unlimited licenses for the equivalent of Bitdefender Total Security software, Armor can protect an entire family’s computers regardless of whether they’re PCs, Macs, Androids, iPhones or iPads. A year is included free, but after that it costs $70 a year.

Netgear’s one-year warranty is second best compared to the three-years of coverage offered by competitors like Linksys and D-Link. Plus, Netgear only provides 90-days of free customer support. It should be plenty of time to get the system up and running, but pales to its competitors. You can buy two years of warranty and support for $120.

If you do need help, the support that Netgear provides is excellent. In addition to 24/7 access to helpful technicians, you can call, chat or email them.

There’s also a link in the Orbi app to get help that takes you directly to the Netgear support page, which is full of DIY assistance for troubleshooting and optimizing your mesh system. From a thorough manual and lots of FAQs to problem-specific articles and how-to videos, there's enough help offered for free that many customers won't need to worry about the 90-day window to speak to live reps.

Netgear Orbi WiFi 6 (RBK852) review: Verdict

If you’re looking for the easiest and fastest mesh networking kit on the market, the Netgear Orbi WiFi 6 (RBK852) does the trick with excellent performance, particularly for those in older homes with lots of walls. Its tri-band design with a dedicated backhaul data channel continues to be the best mesh approach and the RBK852 delivers on the promise of Wi-Fi 6, although each device is huge and you might need a third device. 

The rare router that puts security first, the RBK852 combines Touch ID and two-factor authentication with malware software from Bitdefender to keep your online home squeaky clean. But, at $700 for the two-part kit, the RBK852 is one of the most expensive ways to distribute Wi-Fi at home and it only includes 90-days of support. 

While larger and much more expensive than Google’s Nest WiFi mesh kit, the Netgear Orbi RBK852 brings Wi-Fi 6 technology and higher performance but lacks the Nest’s built in smart speaker and microphone; to get Orbi’s take on a mesh kit that listens to your commands and plays music you need to get the RBS40V Voice kit that, like Nest, still uses Wi-Fi 5 technology. As far as up to date gear goes, there are cheaper approaches from TP-Link’s Deco X20 but they fall short on performance. It may be costly and large, but the Netgear Orbi WiFi 6 (RBK852) kit is the leader in Wi-Fi 6 mesh networking by pushing data where it needs to be: everywhere.

Meet the fastest mesh router we've tested yet

How fast? Let's compare it to the Nest Wifi, our current top pick in the mesh category. We clocked that system's top wireless transfer speeds at 612 megabits per second at a close-range distance of five feet. The Netgear Orbi 6 hit a top speed of 666Mbps -- at a distance of 75 feet. Up close, the number was 871Mbps, which is the fastest speed we've ever seen from a mesh router in that test.

How impressive? When I took the two-piece Orbi system home and tested how fast I was able to connect throughout my house, I saw average speeds at the farthest point from the router that were 95% as fast as my average speeds up close, in the same room as the router. No other mesh system I've tested has managed to get any higher than 82% in that same test. Most come in below 60%.

Still, as capable as the high-end Orbi system is, it's overkill for most folks, especially if your internet connection isn't at least 500Mbps. In my home, where my fiber internet plan nets me speeds of up to 300Mbps, my average speeds throughout the house came in at 289Mbps with the Netgear Orbi, which is better than the whole-home average of 222Mbps that I saw from the Nest Wifi, and better than any other mesh router I've tested. But it wasn't noticeably better. Both connections felt comparably snappy as I browsed the web or streamed TV. Pick one of the two at random, set it up in my home, and ask me to spend a weekend using my network like normal, and come Monday I wouldn't be able to tell you which system I'd been using.

And, if it's the Netgear Orbi's support for Wi-Fi 6 support that's tempting you, know that a number of new Wi-Fi 6 mesh systems are set to debut in the coming months. That includes a few options that you'll be able to score for $250 or less, like Netgear's own Nighthawk-branded Wi-Fi 6 mesh system. Almost everyone looking to upgrade to a mesh router this year should start with systems like that before blowing the bank on more mesh than they need. But credit to our new speed king -- if you simply want the fastest, best-performing mesh money can buy, look no further.

Mesh 101

Mesh routers are systems that include range-extending satellite devices. You plug the router into your modem like normal, and then plug the satellite in somewhere else in your home. The satellite maintains a strong connection with the router and serves as a signal booster when you're connecting from afar.

In other words, a mesh router is a solid choice if you're looking to spread a speedy Wi-Fi connection throughout your home and eliminate annoying dead zones. They don't offer top speeds that are as fast as standard, single-point routers, but they do offer much better coverage. And, since your home's internet plan almost certainly caps your top speeds at rates well below what any modern router is actually capable of, that superior coverage will make a much more noticeable difference in your internet experience.

But does it have to cost $700?

No -- you've got plenty of mesh alternatives that cost hundreds less, including well-reviewed options like the Nest Wifi, Eero and the dual-band, Wi-Fi 5 version of the Netgear Orbi, which is a much more budget-friendly option at $199 for a three-pack. With the Wi-Fi 6 version of the Orbi, a three-pack costs $999.

It's not necessarily Wi-Fi 6 that makes the higher-end Orbi (which I'm calling the "Netgear Orbi 6" to avoid confusion with other Orbi systems) so much more expensive. Like I said, Netgear's own Wi-Fi 6 Nighthawk mesh system costs just $230 for a two-pack. The real difference is that the Netgear Orbi 6 beefs things up with a faster processor, faster top speeds and -- most importantly -- a second 5GHz band that the system uses as a dedicated backhaul connection between the router and its satellites. That lets the system move data around as you're connecting in a much more efficient manner, and without any extra interference, all of which lets you enjoy faster connections at a distance, when the satellite is in play.

It's an especially killer feature in combination with Wi-Fi 6, because the router and satellite can take full advantage of new Wi-Fi 6 features in order to move data around faster than ever. Even if you don't yet own any Wi-Fi 6 gadgets capable of taking full advantage of the speedy new standard, the end result is that connecting to the internet when you're close to the satellite should be nearly as fast as when you're near the router itself.

orbi-wifi-6-back-ports

Other high-end hardware touches include the multigig WAN port on the router that can support incoming speeds as high as 2.5Gbps (2,500Mbps). Prior to last year, the WAN port on most routers capped your incoming speed at 1Gbps, and many still do. As internet speeds continue to rise and more and more of us gain access to gigabit speeds, single gig WAN ports like that will become even more of a bottleneck.

Netgear's not alone in this new premium tier of triband, Wi-Fi 6 mesh routers. The newest version of Linksys Velop offers a nearly identical pitch, and retails for $700 as well. Same goes for the AmpliFi Alien, from Ubiquiti, which costs $700 for a two-piece mesh setup. Meanwhile, the Arris Surfboard Max Pro costs a little less at $650 for a two-pack.

Later this year, in addition to that new $230 Wi-Fi 6 Netgear Nighthawk mesh system, we'll be testing out dual-band Wi-Fi 6 mesh routers from D-Link and TP-Link, both of which will cost a fraction of what the Netgear Orbi 6 costs. They won't perform at the same level without that backhaul channel, but they'll still be a lot closer to the sweet spot for most shoppers.

Setup and performance

As I said at the top, the Orbi 6 is our new speed leader as far as mesh is concerned. In our lab, we used that multigig Ethernet jack to connect the Orbi's router with a local server, then we used a Wi-Fi 6-equipped laptop to connect to its wireless network. We were able to download files from the server at speeds of up to 871Mbps at close range, which is as fast as mesh systems like these get. At a distance of 75 feet, speeds only fell to 666Mbps, which is excellent.

That's a lot of speed, but I also wanted to see how the system performed in a real-world setting. So, I set it up at my house, a 1,300 sq. ft. shotgun-style home with a 300Mbps fiber internet connection, and started running dozens upon dozens of speed tests from different rooms. Throughout all of it, I streamed live HD video to my TV in order to simulate typical network congestion.

Speaking of setup, it was relatively painless. You'll download the Orbi app to your Android or iOS device (or connect to the Orbi web portal), then follow the instructions. Just plug in your router and satellite when instructed, give your network a name and a password, and wait for Netgear to get you up and running. The process took slightly longer than with the Nest Wifi, Eero or AmpliFi, but it worked perfectly and had my network up and running in about 10 minutes.

From there, you'll be able to manage your system from the Orbi app. The controls don't go as deep as you'll get with something like a gaming router, but you at least get options to pause the Wi-Fi to specific devices, or run a quick speed test.

mesh-wi-fi-router-real-world-speeds

Speaking of speed tests, the results in my home were, again, impressive. My average speed in the living room, where the router is located, was a perfect 300Mbps -- and that average hardly dropped at all as I moved around the house. My back bathroom is the farthest spot from the router, and it's a common dead zone if I'm testing a standard, single-point router. With the Orbi 6, my average speeds back there only fell to 288Mbps, which is 95% of what I was getting in the front of the house, up close to the router.

That's a ridiculously strong result. Compare it to the Nest Wifi and the triband Netgear Orbi Voice, the two strongest Wi-Fi 5 mesh setups I've tested. Each of those was able to hit an average download speed of 164Mbps in that back bathroom.

The Orbi 6 was also a standout in terms of signal strength. We tested it by taking it to the 5,800 sq. ft. CNET Smart Home, where we used NetSpot software to measure the signal strength from the router and the satellite across dozens of points on the main floor, where both devices were situated, and also in the basement below. The stronger the signal in a given spot, the faster you'll be able to connect to your network.

mesh-router-coverage-grid-nest-wifi-netgear-orbi-eero

The result is that heat map above, where blue is bad, green is good and yellow is great. At close proximity, the Orbi router and satellite each took us past yellow and on into orange territory, which none of the Wi-Fi 5 mesh systems we tested last year were able to do. Our early results for other Wi-Fi 6 mesh systems we're testing, including the Arris Surfboard Max and the new Linksys Velop, are looking strong, too.

That said, note that while the coverage was definitely adequate throughout the majority of the home, the signal wasn't as strong down below in the basement, where things looked to be more on par with what we saw from mesh systems that support Wi-Fi 5. 

That tells me that while the Orbi 6 might offer stronger connections at distance, it also might not be any more of a magic bullet for multistory homes than existing mesh systems already are.

Feel the need for speed?

The Netgear Orbi 6 is proof positive that mesh networking and Wi-Fi 6 make for a pretty killer combo. When the router and its satellite are able to use Wi-Fi 6 speeds and features to pass data back and forth, everyone benefits -- most notably with faster connections at a distance.

Still, at $700 for a two-pack, this is a very difficult system to recommend. You'll need an internet plan of at least 500Mbps before you'll notice much of a difference between the Orbi 6 and less expensive alternatives like the Nest Wifi, Eero or even Netgear's own budget-priced, Wi-Fi 5 version of the Orbi. At $700, the Orbi 6 is more than twice as expensive as all of those, and it doesn't include unique extras like built-in smart speakers or a device prioritization engine. And if it's Wi-Fi 6 that you want, then you should almost certainly wait to see how the less expensive, dual-band Wi-Fi 6 mesh systems due out this year perform in our tests. Either that, or wait for a significant sale.

What it's like to install and use the Netgear Orbi AX6000 mesh Wi-Fi 6 system

orbi-ax6000-lifestyle-image-2.jpg

Fast internet speeds and great Wi-Fi coverage are a must for anyone working from home, or who likes gaming or steaming content. In other words, most people. 

Mesh Wi-Fi systems offer a level of coverage and speed that is far superior to single-point, stand-alone Wi-Fi routers. These systems pair a router with range-extending satellite devices, which are often called "points" or "satellites" depending on whether you're buying from Google or Netgear or another manufacturer. 

More about artificial intelligence

It was time for an upgrade in our household, since we needed to eliminate dead zones and boost the overall Wi-Fi speed. We opted for the Netgear Orbi AX6000 mesh Wi-Fi 6 system. Wi-Fi 6, also known as 802.11ax, is the next-generation wireless standard and it's faster than 802.11ac, aka Wi-Fi 5.

The Orbi AX6000 uses Wi-Fi 6 standard, which is so new that most current technology isn't yet updated for it, meaning future-proofing is a major plus of this set. 

SEE: The future of work: Tools and strategies for the digital workplace (TechRepublic free PDF)

Our particular Orbi AX6000 system, with one primary router and a single additional satellite, can cover up to 5,000 square feet, far more than 1,575 square feet of my home. Using the combined 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi bands the Orbi AX6000 can reach up to 24000 Mbps, and even has beamforming on each of the Wi-Fi bands to improve simultaneous streaming to multiple devices, taking advantage of one of the prime improvements of Wi-Fi 6. It has a dedicated wireless backhaul 5 GHz Wi-Fi link between the router and satellites for faster data transmission between the two devices for consistent performance by both the primary router and secondary satellite.

The installation process

The Orbi AX6000 is simple to install. All instructions are delivered via the Orbi app, and it walks users through each step of the process without any of the confusing complexities that once made setting up a home network a pain for anyone who wasn't an IT tech. 

The process with the Orbi AX6000 largely boils down to resetting and disconnecting devices from the modem, plugging the Orbi router into an outlet and the modem, and letting the app do the work. The Orbi app further simplifies the setup process by advising that by keeping the network name and password the same as it was prior, all previously connected devices will be able to connect without re-entering the network information. 

Surprisingly, the process of setting up the two Wi-Fi towers included in the Orbi system was the smoothest we've had with any Wi-Fi installation, other than a blip of issues from the ISP servicing the house.   

Where to place the router and satellites

The placement is up to the user, though the satellite provides a convenient led indicator that changes color depending on the connection strength to the main router. We placed the main router where our previous one was located, in the room used as the office in the back center of the house, as the modem was also already there, and it is a relatively central part of the house. We placed the satellite in the living room due to the concentration of network devices used in that room, along with the adjacent bedroom. Both rooms serve as frequent workplaces, ironically far more often than the office area.

The Orbi app uses Speedtest.net to check upload and download speeds. Our speed tests confirmed that we are now getting speeds of at least 100 Mbps in every room of the house, with speeds of 238 Mbps in line of sight with the router and satellite. 

How it all works

The Orbi app has a dashboard for the maintenance and monitoring of your home network. Within it, users can see and disconnect currently connected devices at will, test speeds, manage a guest network and more.

The Orbi has greatly improved coverage areas in the house, eliminating former dead zones that are now viable workplaces. This elimination of dead zones seems to be due to an increased capacity for penetrating plaster walls, at least in comparison to our previous mesh router set. 

Using the Orbi AX6000 router, our dead zones are totally eliminated, and the reach of our network has expanded far beyond our previous limits and even current needs. In nearly every room of the house, in our garage, in our driveway, and even across the street, we can now expect download speeds up to, or often at 230 Mbps (give or take 5 Mbps), and upload speeds up to 12 Mbps (give or take 2 Mbps). These meet and even exceed the quoted speeds of our Spectrum plan. Important caveat: these speeds were observed at non-peak usage times, but the consistency of these tests suggests the reach and strength of the network will remain, even if speeds may dip somewhat at peak usage hours.

Within the rooms the satellite and router occupy, speeds are peaking at either the maximum the respective device supports, or the top speed afforded to us on Spectrum, whichever speed is lower. 

We found that coverage for the front bedroom, which previously had been practically nonexistent, now delivers speeds in the range of 100-150 Mbps. Devices in the same room as the router or satellite can hit 238 Mbps, which is, again, a speed actually above what our ISP says it provides. 

The Orbi has a $700 price tag but it's worth it
