Orbi Whole Home WiFi System keeps Everyone Connected

I have received Orbi Whole Home WiFi System in exchange for this post sharing my experiences with the product. All opinions are my own. 

I have always had terrible luck with internet services no matter which home I live in or which device I am trying to connect.

It’s almost like those people who inhabit some kind of high energy or magnetism that causes every watch they wear to break. My dad claims he is one of those people, I never had that problem with watches but for me, it’s an internet black hole that follows me to every home I live in.

My husband and I have joked about it because it is like being in the Twilight Zone, nobody knows why it is happening and no matter what we do, we just can’t remedy the issue.

Every time we order a new service from a different company they claim their product is superior somehow and we give it a go because we have nothing to lose at this point. Of course, when the installer comes out he sets everything up and shows us top speeds coming through on his handheld device before he has us sign his paperwork and send him on his way.

Once we use the service for a couple of days we realize that our speeds are nowhere near the numbers that we are paying for. When we call the provider to complain it is usually the same hoops of fire we need to jump through each time before they take our issues seriously and actually attempt to investigate what is going on.

The first step is to usually turn something off and wait for about 60 seconds, sometimes we just need to restart a device, unplug something, and on occasion, we actually have to go outside to look at something.

Sometimes this leads to another call and almost always a transfer to the department that specializes in my particular problem.

The next step is usually sending someone out who then blames my equipment and tells me that with the computers, phones, televisions, or whatever devices I am using, I can not possibly get the speeds I am paying for.

At this point, I have had enough of this torture and have decided that even if I am paying for triple-digit speeds and have only been receiving single-digit speeds.

It’s not worth dealing with crappy customer service and having the installer who statistically speaking is likely to be a criminal in my home over and over again knowing the outcome will always be the same.

So I decided to try something different, an actual solution to my problems! Orbi Whole Home WiFi System has improved my internet speeds and allowed me to connect from every room of my home!

After installing, which took less than five minutes and very little know how, I was ready to put the Orbi Whole Home WiFi System to the test, the Speed Test that is.

Now keep in mind that the internet speed is going to fluctuate throughout the day so the numbers will read differently when testing multiple times but you can get a good idea of what the Orbi Whole Home WiFi System is capable of if you test it compared to your old internet connection back to back.

The first test I ran showed the Orbi Whole Home WiFi Systems speed at 50+ and the old Internet speed at slightly less than 6! I tested again later and the Orbi actually reached triple digits, this has never happened in my house so I was pretty happy with that!

I ran a couple of speed tests this morning to share the photos with you as you can see in the screenshots that are both dated and share the time they were taken.

The Orbi Whole Home WiFi System is named FBI Surveillance Van ( I hate my neighbors) and the one labeled Internet (Real Creative I know) is what I was using before I had these magical devices.

You can see from the above screenshot that I was getting a 7.6 mbps at 8:16 am. On the below screenshot taken just a couple of minutes earlier you can see with the Orbi Whole Home WiFi System, my speed was an impressive 30.1 Mbps.

The reason they were two minutes apart was just because that is how long it takes me to do a screenshot, open up paint, paste it in there and then do another speed test.

Now that you can see the Orbi Whole Home WiFi System work, let me share some information I have received that explains why Orbi is so great!

Orbi covers up to 5,000 sq. ft. and comes equipped with NETGEAR’s unique tri-band technology, giving families, couples and individuals the bandwidth they need for the growing number devices in their home. Plus it supports Amazon Alexa and Circle with Disney to connect to your smart home and provide the parental controls necessary at home or away.

No matter how many people you have over for the holidays trying to jump on your WiFi, Orbi will make sure everyone gets those desired speeds and you don’t have to worry about the high traffic slowing down your WiFi.

The Orbi creates a high capacity superhighway that would slow down other units but now that is a worry of the past. Let everyone connect because with the Orbi Whole Home WiFi System, you can share, in fact, this holiday season it really is, the more the merrier!

That sounds like a great home wifi system. And I think that is what we need over here because nothing is more annoying than a super slow wifi.

I need this. I really really need this. We are so connected and put the wifi through the wringer with everything we use (all at the same time of course) so we never have the speeds we need. This is our answer.

Sounds like a really cool system! We have a killer system at home but my brother is moving in a couple weeks and is looking for a wifi system. I'll be sure to forward this to him! Thanks!

This sounds like a great device. Might be something I would need to look more in to. I'll have to check with my husband to see on this product.
