WiFi for a Streaming World

March 11, 2017

 

When it comes to home WiFi there is a lot of static out there but at ThomDigital we have done the work for you and selected the best solution.

 

On the surface these wifi solutions all seem to be the same but there are a lot of factors that need to come together to provide a positive experience for everyone. There are many different options for different needs but the Ubiquiti Amplifi HD  ($350) system is the best mesh router we've tested, in performance, reliability, ease of setup and style

The Amplifi line of products from Ubiquiti Networks comes in three flavors but we recommend the Amplify HD reviewed here as it is the most powerful of the three and is designed for large houses with obstructions, such as dense walls, floors, and other structures, ie New York living! It has six high-density, long-range antennas and 2 wireless mesh access points to cover up to 20,000 square feet and offers theoretical throughput speeds of up to 5.25Gbps. When looking at wireless coverage statistics a reasonable expectation is 1/10th of the advertised coverage in a home environment. This puts the Amplifi HD safely at 2,000sq ft.

Even with great WiFi in your home we still recommend hard wiring the most data or throughput hungry devices in your home. The Amplify HD base station has 4 gigabit Ethernet ports for connecting these devices.
