The Google Nest Wi-Fi Pro, which we called the best choice for people new to mesh Wi-Fi systems, sells for $220 for a two-pack. That’s 27 percent off, which is the best price all year and just $20 more than the lowest price it hit on Black Friday last November. A set of two should provide coverage for 4,400 square feet. If you have a particularly large home or difficult areas due to thick walls or other obstructions, you may want to the three pack. This set is marked down to $319 after 20% off.

Mesh Wi-Fi systems allow you to add a distributed set of smaller nodes around your home, solving many connectivity issues, including ISP-provided equipment and dead zones in far-flung or inconvenient corners. The Wi-Fi 7 standard has just been released, but few devices still support it, and the speeds the protocol can potentially deliver (along with the price) are probably too much for the average household. Wi-Fi 6E, on the other hand, is mature and much more affordable. It is very capable of providing superior wireless performance to the home for those coming from previous Wi-Fi generations.

In our review, Engadget’s Daniel Cooper noted that the Nest Pro system is neither faster (although it is quite fast) nor more responsive than its competitors, but it is one of the most affordable Wi-Fi 6E systems. It’s also incredibly easy to use, even for those who have never worked with mesh routers before. The Nest Pro should particularly appeal to anyone who’s already purchased Google’s smart home ecosystem, as it makes good use of the Home app, where many of your automation controls may already reside.

One of the bigger selling points is Google’s promise of regular software updates, which means you should be able to set up the system and not have to think about your Wi-Fi configurations for several years.
