The TP-Link Wi-Fi 6E capable Deco XE75 mesh router is now available
TP-Link has launched the Deco XE75 mesh Wi-Fi 6E system. The tri-band routers can reach speeds up to 5,400 Mbps and support 200 devices. The new 6 GHz frequency more than doubles the available bandwidth to remove interference, and it can streamline the performance of non-Wi-Fi 6E devices.
The company claims that a pair of routers can support whole-home Wi-Fi 6E, covering 5,500 ft² (~511 m²). The AI-driven mesh ensures that devices have the best connection as they move throughout your home, all using the same login details.
TP-Link claims that its HomeShield package gives the device cutting edge network and IoT security features, such as parental controls and comprehensive reports. The HomeShield basic plan comes free with the device; users can opt to pay a monthly or yearly fee for the Pro Plan to unlock additional tools.
The gadget has three gigabit LAN ports and is fully backwards compatible with earlier Wi-Fi standards. TP-Link suggests that the device is suited to those who play VR or stream in 8k, given the ‘turbocharged’ gigabit speeds it can provide.
You can now buy a pack of two TP-Link Deco XE75s for US$299.99. However, it’s worth noting that recent reports claim that TP-Link routers are sending browser behaviour data to third parties regardless of customer consent.
