Cause Google won't be worse from a surveillance perspective?
I just prefer staying in the Google world vs. Amazons.
Support will eventually be outsourced overseas. One of the things I really like about eero - their support and the fact that I'm speaking to someone here in the US and actually understands me and I can understand them.
I'm planning to upgrade my wifi system in the next 12 months; haven't decided if I'll do it before or after I upgrade home internet service the end of the year.
I don't know if I'll go with a smaller company like Plume...and risk them going under as the industry is consolidated by the huge tech companies buying up the competition. Or, my current preference of Netgear Orbi, which is a pretty good sized and big brand networking company -- assuming they don't integrate Alexa into all their devices. Or do I need to go against my preferences and have my wifi go through a company who's core business is hoovering up all my data to sell me off to the highest bidder, in order to have a product that will be supported for the next several years?
Interesting times. Interesting times.
I'd opt for Google Wifi. I don't have anything to hide so this whole privacy paranoia thing doesn't bother me.
If you are Android, Google is the way to go. Integrates nicely and works great. Plus it's so compact in size.
Google WiFi isn't currently the performance/value leader based on reviews and comparisons I've read. That might change next year. And the choice also depends on your home layout and particular needs. Anecdotally, I have a friend with G wifi and likes it a lot. It's a fine solution. But recent reviews are Google's product has stagnated the past two years and there are better choices in 2019.
Add in the privacy / data collection concerns, and I'm glad there are still excellent options besides Google and Amazon.
