WiFi 6E operates on a 6GHz band, enabling faster connections and lower latencies will enable you to connect more than 150 devices.
AX offers 160MHz channel support: This allows the router to use the wider 160MHz channel, which can provide theoretical speeds of up to 9,608Mbps.
Most can also be controlled via an APP. And allows for Hyrbrid 6GHZ.

OFDMA: OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access) is a new technology that helps to improve the efficiency of the wireless spectrum. This means that more devices can be connected to the network without experiencing any slowdowns.
MU-MIMO: MU-MIMO (Multi-User, Multiple Input, Multiple Output) is another new technology that helps to improve the performance of the wireless network. MU-MIMO allows the router to communicate with multiple devices at the same time, which can significantly reduce latency.
Tri-band Wi-Fi: The router has three bands: 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 5GHz (160MHz). This allows the router to provide more bandwidth for more devices.

GoCompare – A newer simple one click service
uSwitch – Free-to-use service that analyses your broadband speed in seconds. Gives stats on your area. We found this to be stable and easy to use.
Speedtest.net – Unofficial but very popular
UK Broadband– Stuttery and gave incorrect upload speeds.
How does the internet speed test work?
When you start the speed test, our StreetStats tool checks your broadband speed by downloading and uploading dummy “packets” of data sent to our UK servers via “pings”.
