It’s 2017 and the days of spotty home Wi-Fi are officially dead. Wireless internet used to be a constant source of frustration and struggle thanks to poor coverage, slow speeds, and constant hiccups that could only be resolved with a reboot. It was infuriating. Then came mesh Wi-Fi systems for the home. These multi-device setups are a perfect compromise between low-cost routers and high-end commercial multi-point wireless systems, offering dramatically improved performance and coverage without a dramatically increased price. That’s especially true on Amazon, where the two best mesh systems out there — the AmpliFi HD and Google Wifi — are both discounted right now.
