Mesh Wi-Fi, something of Interest?

I'm sure you're like me in always seeking to maximize your broadband speed and generally Wi-Fi is the weak link, so interested to find out folks thoughts on mesh wifi. Too expensive or just the thing you're looking for?

 

Here is an interesting NYT article on mesh wifi outlining the tech.

 

Cheers

We've had our own Vodafone Mesh WiFi units for a short while now.

I haven't tried them, but the features of a mesh setup are pretty compelling.

Hi, do Vodafone sell/rent Mesh Wifi units - TP Link Deco M5 that can be added to the bill? We have a big house and the tech guy has been around to swap the modem out, but still have very patchy wifi. Thanks, Jonathan Swan
