If you are looking to upgrade the Wi-Fi in your home, Black Friday is the perfect time to buy.

Cheap Mesh Wi-Fi Deals

If you just need to extend your Internet reliably around your home, then a cheap mesh system is likely the best bet.

All of these are dual-band systems, so the satellites won’t offer incredible speeds, but in general, it is faster than what you get from your ISP.

Prices accurate as of 8 am 27/11/2020 all links are affiliate

TP-Link Deco M5 – £139.99

It looks like these are the cheapest they have ever been on Amazon. I have found the TP-Link Deco system the most user friendly to set up, and the ethernet backhaul works well too.

BT Mini Whole Home – £73.49

Not the most advanced system but they are popular and affordable. You can find them around this price quite frequently so not technically an amazing deal.

Asus Zen Wi-Fi CD6 – £95.99

Not used any Asus Wi-Fi gear myself, but they are well-reviewed and offer great value for money. A 2-pack system should be good for most small to medium-sized homes.  

Amazon Eero – £149.40

Not used these myself butt hey are popular and at £150 they are a bargain, the downside is the 2 to 3 months delivery.

Tri-Band Mesh Wi-Fi Deals – For faster connections to the satellite devices

Tri-band systems use one of the Wi-Fi bands as a backhaul to the other satellites, this will dramatically improve the speed of the satellites. This is good if you transfer files around the hoise between devices, or have a very fast internet connection.

Netgear Orbi Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi System (RBK50) 2-pack for £229.99

NETGEAR RBK50 Router with 1 Satellite Extender NETGEAR RBK50 Router with 1 Satellite Extender No ratings yet £269.95

This used to be the top of the range Netgear system and it is still one of the best Wi-Fi 5 mesh systems on the market.

Not quite the cheapest it has ever been but close

Netgear Orbi RBK23 3-pack for £239.99

PreviewProductRatingPrice
NETGEAR RBK23-100UKS NETGEAR RBK23-100UKS 474 Reviews

Not quite as fancy as the RBK50 range, apart for the reduced number of ethernet ports, you probably won’t notice the difference. The RBK23 is the system I used to use personally before I wired the home up with Ethernet.

Linksys WHW0303 Velop for £219.99

Not used it myself, and it has a few mixed reviews, but £220 for a tri-band system with three devices is a bargain.

Wi-Fi 6 Mesh Wi-Fi 6 Systems

If you have bought s flagship phone or a new laptop recently, it will probably have Wi-Fi 6, offering a much faster throughput speed. Similar to the Wi-Fi 5 options, you have dual band and tri-band systems. This will have a big difference in price and the speed of the satellites.

Netgear Nighthawk MK62 – £159.99

NETGEAR MK62-100UKS NETGEAR MK62-100UKS No ratings yet

The Netgear Nighthawk MK62 is a dual-band system so the satellite device will drop in speed quite a bit, but the main router can connect at speeds up to 1200mbps. It is a bargain at this price and over £50 cheaper than it has ever been.

Linksys MX10600 – £479.99

Even with 31% knocked off this is still painfully expensive. This tri-band system is one of the best-specced options on the market and has an impressive 5 Ethernet ports per node, though no multi-gig ports

ASUS RT-AX92U AX6100 – £286.99

Being a tri-band system, it should offer a similar performance to the Linksys but at a much more attractive price point.

Wi-Fi 5 Routers

If you need to replace your ISP provided Wi-Fi router and don’t have a massive house, there are plenty of cheap Wi-Fi 5 options. I’d be inclined to go for Wi-Fi 6 for future-proofing, but TP-Link has some good buys.

Wi-Fi 6 Routers

Huawei AX3 – £44.99

The Huawei AX3 is the option I would buy if you want a cheap upgrade to the ISP supplied router. £45 and Wi-Fi 6 is incredible

Linksys MR7350 for £89.99

Double the price but more feature rich and the option to upgrade to mesh
