A Better Router
by Fox Van Allen for Techlicious
It’s rare to have legitimately exciting news to announce in the world of Wi-Fi routers, but today we do: Tech giant Google has just unveiled a new $199 smart router called OnHub that lets you manage the traffic on your home Wi-Fi network via smartphone app.
Aside from an aesthetically pleasing design, OnHub offers 802.11a/b/g/n/ac connectivity – basically, it will work with any device you have and support the fastest data transfer possible, up to a max of 1900 Mbps. It’s also designed to support a range of smart home devices via Bluetooth Smart Ready, 802.15.4 (ZigBee) and Weave (Nest). It’s future-proofed, which you should expect given its premium pricetag.
The OnHub also comes with an impressive smartphone-based user interface.
