One of the rumors that popped up right before the Google event was something calledGoogle WiFi.Today, they officially announced the new router system. Unlike the OnHub, this new router will create a multi-point mesh network in your home. Instead of one central router that has to reach every corner of your house, a multi-point system uses multiple devices to blanket the area. The Eero is a good example of a multi-point system.
The price for one Google WiFi unit is $129 or you can get three units to spread around your house for $299. Pre-orders open in November and it will ship in December. We don’t know what this means for theOnHub router. OnHub has always been a strange product from Google. We’re not sure what Google WiFi means for the future of OnHub, but for the sake of everyone that has one, we hope it doesn’t go anywhere.
