New Eero announcement  



What is the thinking in Eero releasing a new WiFi router without stated WiFi 6 support?  Am I missing something when they say; "Dual-band Wi-Fi radios, simultaneous 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, 2x2 MU-MIMO, beamforming, IEEE802.11a/b/g/n/ac".  Does the MU-MIMO foreshadow some firmware update to support ax?  Are there plans to release a monster 8x8 base unit that can integrate with this mesh?  I am keen on the $99 price.


My guess is that this is an answer to compatition from other less expensive mesh networking vendors.

Then they can focus their premier product on WiFi 6 in a future announcement.

I like what I read about this new eero unit. Same CPU/RAM/Storage config as the eero Pro, too, which I presume means that it will perform at the same level for all the BufferBloat/SQM and security/filtering tasks.
