Google OnHub Wants To Improve Your Wi-Fi Experience

Google / Tech

Google OnHub is Google’s foray into the realm of consumer based computer networking and it’s looking really slick. Google is selling the hub as a solution to slow Wi-Fi speeds and as a designer piece. Playing on the fact that most of us hide our ugly black and white square routers in a cabinet with the wires dangling out. Whereas Google OnHub is a well designed piece of artwork that you’ll want to display out in the open. Whether or not the thing looks good is a matter of opinion, but one thing I do agree with Google on is that your router will work much better in the open.

  • Built-in speaker
  • IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac
  • AC 1900 (Up to 1900 Mbps)

Google OnHub works with an app paired to your Android or iPhone and sports some nifty features such as prioritization. Now you can assign Internet priority to a device from the app giving you the ability to allot bandwidth to specific devices at specific times. For example, when I am writing articles for the site, I would prioritize my MacBook Pro and give less bandwidth to my Apple TV which the kids usually watch while I work, the best part is it can be done through the app. Google also touts that OnHub’s hardware was built with the future in mind so you don’t have to worry about it becoming obsolete too quickly. You can even maintain the hub when you’re away from home.

Google OnHub looks promising. Will you be ordering one? Let us know in the comments below or on Google+, Facebook and Twitter.
