Last week, Google released a wireless router on the internet called the OnHub, which was at work for a couple of years.
OnHub features a new cylindrical design which doesn’t resemble any typical router as it needs to be out in the open to sniff out and deliver the best signal possible with its 13 antennas (six 2.4GHz, six 5GHz and one to monitor congestion). You can easily setup OnHub using an app on your Android and iOS smartphone. You can share your SSID and password with others at any point by tapping on reveal the password. The app also provides details on the number of devices and data those devices were using at that time. Also, restarting your router is easy with a simple tap in the app which saves you from crawling to device searching the button.
The router is priced at $199 with 4GB of storage space for your updates and provides WiFi speeds up to 1900 Mbps. It was built in collaboration with TP-Link but Google also says it will be working with other partners to design more OnHub devices as they included a model from ASUS soon this year.
Pre-orders are live now for some retailers and you can expect it delivered to your door in coming weeks.
