Best modem/router

HI

 

I am currently using the vodofone hg659 bridged with a Netgear Nighthawk® AC1900 Smart WiFi Router on naked broardband. I got the Netgear as the wifi on the HG659 did not have the range.

 

I am now getting fibre and plan to get it wired into the middle of the house where I currenty have the netgear router sitting. Vodafone have also sent me a new ultrahub modem.

 

I want to now just use one modem router.

 

Question: should i use the ultrahub or the netgear, which is better??

 

Thanks for your help in advance

I know you posted a while ago, but from a wifi point of view, either one in the same location will actually provide much the same wifi coverage. They have the same wifi spec.

It really comes down to if you need the rextra features the netgear has or not (eg better parental controls)
