Thanks to the collaboration between Google and Chinese company TP-LINK, the advertising giant was able to bring to the public, a high-speed router called OnHub. Since the router is filled with an abundant number of features, do not expect OnHub to come cheaply.
Google OnHub Will Retail For $199.99; Provides Mobile And Wireless Device Users With An On-Going List Of Options
Not only is Google OnHub fast and easy to use, the router is beefed up in terms of preserving the security of the network. In terms of aesthetics and shape, the router is unlike anything we have ever seen before. With smartphones taking over the globe, it was high time that a smart router would be placed in a household and work all the magic that would prevent us from carrying out the manual tweaking process by ourselves.
It just so happens that OnHub searches the airwaves and selects the best channel for the fastest connection. Since the router features a unique antenna design, you will not be able to see any visible antennas and thanks to the smart software, OnHub will avoid interference in order to keep the network at its optimum level. Remember when we said that the product was very easy to use? We were not joking about that bit because OnHub is very simple to setup and manage your Wi-Fi network.
The mobile app is available for both Android and iOS, and when you fire up the application, it will tell you all the crucial statistics such the amount of bandwidth all devices are using. Additionally, OnHub will automatically update its software with new features and the latest security upgrades, all the while providing you with undisruptive connectivity.
Apart from TP-LINK, Google has partnered with Taiwanese company Asus to roll out more OnHub devices later in 2015. Starting from today, this router is available for pre-order for $199.99 from online retailers in the U.S. including the Google Store, Amazon, and Walmart.com. It will be available for sale in retail stores in the U.S. and in Canada in the coming weeks.
