Chances are you've ordered something from Amazon recently.

Eero is responsible for introducing two major trends to Wi-Fi routers: mesh networking and subscriptions. But after Plume — another mesh router startup — said earlier this week that it’s going to start requiring a subscription just to buy a router and keep it fully functional, Eero has said it doesn’t plan to follow suit. “We’ve never had plans ever at Eero to do that,” Eero CEO Nick Weaver said on a phone call. “We’ve never had plans and certainly don’t have any future aspirations for requiring a subscription with the core product we sell.” Though Eero does offer a premium subscription plan, it includes services above and beyond the basic functions of a router. For $99 / year, Eero adds content filtering, malicious site blocking, and subscriptions to other security products, like 1Password and a VPN.

Mesh Wi-Fi networks are the new thing. And that's great because mesh networks can put fast Wi-Fi where you need it without getting complicated. There are some great products available that are easy to setup and keep running with Google Wifi, Eero's Home WiFi system, Netgear's Orbi, and Amplifi's HD system.

There are a couple things you should consider before you dust off your credit card. More: Google Wifi vs. Orbi vs. Eero vs. Amplifi: Which mesh system should you buy?

The best solution is to set up a multi-router network, but it can cost several hundred dollars to create one.
