Unlike some gear reviews which only recommend the latest and greatest, I appreciated how the Wirecutter told it to us straight:
“While many recent reviews tout Wi-Fi 6 as the solution to all your wireless problems, our tests and research led us to continue to recommend a Wi-Fi 5 (aka 802.11ac) mesh kit as our pick. Wi-Fi 5 (and some Wi-Fi 4) laptops, phones, and other devices will continue to dominate your home for the next few years, and the premium that Wi-Fi 6 demands just isn’t worth it yet.”
I don’t have unlimited funds for my home Wi-Fi and can’t afford to be an early adopter of all the latest and greatest Wi-Fi 6 hotness (yet!) so this advice was welcome and realistic for me .
