There’s no cheaper way to boost your home Wi-Fi this Black Friday
If an unreliable Wi-Fi connection has been a constant cause of irritation at home, then this low-cost solution to your Wi-Fi woes is pretty much as good as it gets. The Linksys Atlas Pro 6 mesh Wi-Fi system has received a huge Black Friday discount, dropping to its lowest-ever price – and by quite some margin, too.
For a limited time, you can pick up a three-pack Linksys Atlas Pro 6 for just £250. Compare this to an average Amazon price of £401, and you’re looking at a massive saving of £151. Not to mention that this Black Friday bargain beats the lowest-ever price by more than £50.
The Atlas Pro 6 is a Wi-Fi 6 mesh system, which contains both a 2.4GHz radio rated at 600Mbits/sec, plus a 5GHz antenna capable of sending and transmitting data at up to 4.8Gbits/sec – that’s very fast indeed.
As for performance, in our original review, Darien Graham-Smith said that: “The Linksys Atlas Pro 6 performed strongly in all areas of my home, working out slightly faster overall than the tri-band Orbi RBK852”. For reference, that’s a mesh system that costs considerably more.
Consistency was the high point in our testing, however, with the Atlas Pro 6 delivering fast downloads to the extremities of our test building. As a result, it should boost Wi-Fi coverage in even the largest of homes.
Darien Graham-Smith concluded that: “Much as Linksys kickstarted the wireless mesh craze half a decade ago, we won’t be surprised if it now ushers in a new wave of faster, cheaper meshes. There’s no need to wait and see, though – the Atlas Pro 6 does a fantastic job today.” High praise indeed for a dual-band mesh system that currently costs this little.
