On Thursday, Amazon unveiled the Eero 6 and Eero 6 Pro routers, which are designed to cover your entire home with fast Wi-Fi coverage. Both models can support connections to more than 75 devices simultaneously. As the names make clear, both new systems add in support for Wi-Fi 6 - the newest and fastest version of Wi-Fi.
The Eero 6, which goes for $129 as a single device, is a AX1800 mesh system designed for homes with up to a 500Mbps internet connection. It acts as a dual-band Wi-Fi router, with two Ethernet ports capable of covering 1,500 square feet. The same router doubles as a Zigbee smart home hub, enabling you to control all your IoT devices in the surrounding vicinity.
For larger homes, an Eero 6 two-pack is $199, which adds an Eero 6 Wi-Fi extender for 3,000 square feet of coverage. A three-pack will cost you $279 and includes a second Wi-Fi extender for 6,000 square feet of coverage.
The Eero Pro 6, is the more sophisticated of the two products. It's an AX4200-class router, meaning it supports two spatial streams down and two spatial streams up (commonly notated as 2x2) to deliver maximum theoretical throughput of 574Mbps on its 2.4GHz network, while its 2x2 5GHz network offers maximum throughput of 1,201Mbps.
The Eero Pro 6 will cost users approximately $230 USD. These devices will be released to Amazon on pre-order starting today, with release dates later this year.
