TP-Link has announced two new Wi-Fi 7 products – Deco BE85, a BE22000 Tri-Band Mesh Wi-Fi system and Archer BE800, a BE19000 Tri-Band Wi-Fi Router.
Both products are available at more than 200 Best Buy retail locations, and online at Bestbuy.com and Amazon.com. Seems like we just got Wi-Fi 6 routers a short time ago and now we’re in for a new generation of wireless networking.
TP-Link is trying to cement its position as a leader in technology and innovation by bringing widespread availability of Wi-Fi 7 router and mesh systems to the consumer and business markets.
With newly compatible Wi-Fi 7 clients and internet service plans reaching more than 5 Gbps, users now can experience Wi-Fi speeds over 3 Gbps on devices for real-world downloading and streaming. MLO-enabled clients will hit higher peak multi-gig speeds when paired with an adequate internet plan to support them.
