Google Nest Wifi.

We get our wifi through Cincinnati Bell. We have a 500mbps plan. In theory, it should be pretty fast. It’s worked really well for us. But then again, we haven’t really pushed it too hard. With all the working at home for the last few weeks, I’m always downloading and uploading pretty sizeable files, and our wifi has struggled to keep up especially when it comes to all the video conferencing for meetings. We decided to replace our Cincinnati Bell provided router and try a router and point for Google Nest Wifi

I’m a designer, not an IT professional so I don’t completely understand all of this. But a traditional, single router provides relatively limited coverage. It becomes spotty the farther away you are from it. Google Nest wifi claimed to blanket the whole house in fast, reliable wifi that keeps buffering at bay without the need for wifi extenders. One Nest router with one point provides coverage up to 3800 square feet. The white one is the router and the blue one is the point…

The website said it’s strong enough to handle up to 200 connected devices (I need more devices) and it’s fast enough to stream multiple 4K videos at a time. We put the router in our front bedroom on the second floor…

And we placed the point down the hallway in our office…

And each Nest point is also a smart speaker with the Google Assistant. The wifi set-up was ridiculously easy through the Google Home app. And now are internet speeds are off the charts. This the speed test from Google Home…


But I mainly use an app called Meteor to check our internet speeds. This is what our speeds were with our old router from Cincinnati Bell…

And these are our speeds with the Google Nest wifi router and point…

And here’s the speed mid-morning when everyone is on the network…

Night and day difference. Our wifi is so fast now. It’s really great. To me, Google Nest is definitely worth the money! And once we return the router to Cincinnati Bell, we’ll be saving $10 a month on our wifi bill. So eventually, the Google Nest wifi will pay for itself some day. 😀📡❤️

Genifer also got this new rug for our master bathroom…

I love it.
