At its device event in Arlington, Virginia this week, Amazon dropped details about its latest Wi-Fi device, the Eero Max 7 – a router, repeater and range extender all in one.
With wireless speeds of up to 4.3 Gbps and wired speeds of up to 9.4 Gbps, this is Eero’s fastest tri-band mesh WiFi system. Two 10 GB and two 2.5 GB Ethernet ports enable multiple wired device connections, Amazon says, and let customers use Internet plans up to 10 Gbps.

At that speed, a user could download a 4K movie in just 10 seconds. A 50 GB video game would last less than a minute.
If you’re not familiar, Eero is a mesh Wi-Fi system that works with an existing internet connection to deliver a reliable signal over a larger area than traditional Wi-Fi. It uses a number of factors such as the layout of the building it is in, interference from other Wi-Fi signals, and the number of connected devices to automatically send data via the fastest route. Instead of one access point for the Internet connection, there are several.
A single Eero Max 7 device covers approximately 2,500 square feet. For comparison: the Honor 6 had a range of approximately 1,500 feet per device. Eero devices can be connected together to form a mesh network with better range and performance. It’s worth noting that Amazon Echo devices can also serve as a Wi-Fi extender in the Eero network.
“With tens of millions of Eero devices around the world,” said Nick Weaver, co-founder and CEO of Eero, “we know that customers notice even a millisecond delay when streaming a movie or gaming, and want reliable connectivity in every corner of the house and always look for faster speeds.” He went on to call this device “a whole new class of Eero.”

Eero Max 7 works with all major internet providers and takes just seven minutes to set up, Eero says. At the touch of a button, the Internet can be paused or network information can be shared with a friend. It is also backwards compatible with previous generations, making it easy to upgrade an existing network.
