Netgear has released AX1800 and AX6000 WiFi 6 mesh extenders in India

The new Netgear mesh extenders promise better speeds, capacity, and coverage.

Netgear India has expanded its WiFi 6 mesh extender collection in India with the new Nighthawk range of models. There is the Nighthawk AX1800 and AX6000, each of which is designed for a different use case. As their moniker might suggest, the AX6000 is the higher-end model and so it specced as such. It supports 8-streams with speeds up to 6Gbps and is targeted for big roomy spaces with up to 6 bedrooms. In comparison, the AX1800 might be the one you want if your home is small-to-medium in size with 4 bedrooms or so.

Netgear AX1800 is armed with WiFi 6 with speeds of up to 1.8Gbps and up to 1.5x stronger network capacity than WiFi 5. This facilitates 4-streams of WiFi which should be fairly broad bandwidth and less congestion for the connected devices in the network. It has got 2 antennas, which claims to be capable of covering small to medium-sized homes with up to 4 bedrooms.
