The latest version of Amazon’s eero mesh WiFi system is the most affordable to date: a single router sells for $99.
But like any mesh networking system, the idea is that you can use multiple devices throughout your home to ensure a stronger signal. While Amazon says a single eero route can cover up to 1,500 square feet, the company also sells a 3-pack for $249. It should blanket up to a 5,000 square foot home with WiFi.
The latest model also returns to an earlier concept: a 3-pack really gives you three identical routers that you can use interchangeable. the previous-gen eero system consisted of a router + two beacons that could be used as extenders.
That said, the older model is still available for $399, and the primary router supports tri-band WiFi if that’s something you need.
The new routers are pretty compact, measuring about 3.9″ x 2.4″ and each model features two Gigabit Ethernet ports and a USB-C port for power.
Each supports 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0 LTE.
