Google’s updated Wi-Fi router is coming to Canada and Europe


You don’t have to splurge on Nest WiFi to get a Google-powered router outside the US. android font noticed that Google is now selling its refreshed “basic” WiFi router in Canada and 16 European countries, including France, Germany and the UK. Canadian prices start at CAD$140 for a single unit and $280 for a three-device mesh, while UK buyers will pay £90 and £190 respectively.

PA also figured out that Google is slashing US WiFi prices, although they haven’t changed from the original prices at the time of this writing. The revised router started at $99 for one device to $199 for three.

The updated device doesn’t offer the smart speaker functionality of the Nest WiFi and won’t include cutting-edge tech like WiFi 6. It still promises solid connectivity, offering around 1,500 square feet of coverage with a router (good for large apartments) and 4500 with three. It’s arguably a better choice than the Nest WiFi if you already have smart speakers or don’t need the extended range of the more expensive model. Remember that Google routers don’t have an abundance of Ethernet ports – you’ll want to look elsewhere if wired networking is important.
