Netgear Orbi 960 Series Quad-Band WiFi 6E Mesh System Review

When it comes to your home network, it can be a daunting task to work out exactly what you require, as there are so many different technologies to understand, so many different brands, and a dizzying amount of products for every budget. However, today things are pretty straightforward as the Netgear Orbi system (also known as the AXE11000 Mesh WiFi System) is the Saurons ring of routers, with one router to rule them all, and all that jazz. No seriously, this thing is taking no prisoners, with a single unit costing £699.99, it’s making claims that it’s “The world’s most powerful whole-home WiFi system” and frankly, at that price, it has to be. However, it’s not £699.99, that’s if you only want one unit. You can buy it in a two-pack, three, or four. We have the triple pack, which is good for covering a 7500 sq. ft area, for £1699.99. A lot of money, I know, but as I said, this isn’t the sort of router Virgin or BT gives you for free when you sign up, this is on another level entirely.

Orbi 960 Series

Equipped with the latest WiFi 6E technology (yes, some WiFi 7 stuff exists, but that’s like when people were buying 8K TVs a few years back to no avail) it’s capable of delivering WiFi of over 10Gbps, over significant distances, making it a potent addition to larger properties with lots of users and devices, especially those with a lot of IoT/Smarthome hardware which often struggle if WiFi signals aren’t consistent. There’s also 10GbE LAN too, so if you’re lucky enough to be on a truly extreme fibre connection, you can reap those benefits too, or at least enjoy 10GbE internal networking.
