    "I like...FAST !...The WiFi range easily covers a 1500 sq foot home and can also get a great signal outdoors while outdoors--2.4 ghz provides up to 70 more feet outdoors while maintaining data speeds; 5 ghz also reaches outdoors up to 70 feet but the speeds tend to degrade at that range....On the 2.4 gHz channel I have been able to get a stronger connection on all of my "plug in" electronics and the 5 gHz channel has been phenomenal on my Galaxy S7 to help free up some bandwidth and also give me internet speeds higher than my home internet provider guaranteed."
