Eero Introduces New, More Powerful WiFi System

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

Early last year, a savvy startup set out to solve a problem that plagued households across the country: home wireless networks with poor coverage. The average users expects WiFi in all areas of their home, and why wouldn’t they? We’ve all got a multitude of devices that require an internet connection: the laptop in the bedroom, the smart TV in the den, and the smartphone everywhere in between, from the front door to the bathroom. But that reliable coverage was hard to achieve. A typical wireless router might have stellar bandwidth at close range, but when you turn a corner, go upstairs, or close a couple of doors, your wireless signal may drop significantly.

Eero solved this problem by reinventing the way home wireless systems are propogated, using multiple points of network access instead of just a single router. The resulting mesh network blankets your entire home with full coverage, meaning that even in the nooks and crannies of your home, on a floor above or below your modem, you’ll have no problem tuning in an excellent wi-fi signal. We took a look at the Eero here:

Today, Eero released their second generation wireless system, improving upon the original by making it more powerful and even easier to use. Though outward appearance remains unchanged, the Eero wireless base stations have been upgraded with much-improved internals. A new antenna array and the addition of tri-band support give the new Eero twice the bandwidth and double the range of the original, letting your Eero network support more users while giving faster speeds with farther signal penetration.

Clearly a Good Option

Monday, December 28th, 2009

Have you heard of Clear Internet? If you are thinking about switching to 4G WiMAX, now is the time. If you sign up for a two-year Clear Internet contract at Abt Electronics or on Abt.com, you will receive an Epc1005haeu1x Netbook, a $299 value.

A great aspect of Clear Internet is the freedom it brings. Unlike WiFi, wireless we are all used to, WiMAX isn’t limited to a small area like your home, a store, or school. WiMAX has region-wide coverage. With Clear Internet, you are able to roam freely and still get internet at ultra-fast 4G speed. Clear Internet will even piggy-back onto other wireless signals if you are out of range—so you can stay connected anywhere.

Clear Internet is currently available in select cities. If you have questions or would like to see if Clear Internet is available in your area, speak with an Abt sales specialist in-store or on-line, today.
