  • App design is well
  • Little expensive
  • Automatic Update without any manual need


  • Relatively weak Satellite unit performance
  • Two Ethernet ports

Now, let’s focus on the different points.

Internet Speed

There is nothing wrong with the internet speeds from the primary routers of the respective company. Both of them provide superior internet speed up to 100 Mbps download, and 35 Mbps upload speed.

With this much speed provided by the primary routers, it will never let you feel a lack of speed. From this point, we can say that Google WiFi is the better option.

Performance of Satellite Units

The satellite unit of Orbi provides the as same results as nearly the main unit. The Orbi satellite unit offers 99.9 percent of the download speed of the main unit. As compared to this, the performance of Google WiFi satellite unit is relatively weak. It achieves only 57 percent of the main unit’s download speed. That means it can get a download speed of just around 70 Mbps.

Considering this point, we must go with Netgear’s Orbi.

Cost Consideration

After internet speed and satellite unit’s performance, the price is always the main consideration. If you look at the rate of Google WiFi with Three packs, then it costs you around $300. On the other end, Two packs of Orbi will cost you about $380. However, both the router can cover the same amount of square foot area. But, as usual, the price will always play a significant role.

So, if you want always to have a maximum download and upload speed, then Google WiFi is preferable. And if you are not satisfied with Google WiFi’s satellite unit performance, then go with the other one. For you, if money doesn’t matter, even then you can have the best option is Netgear’s Orbi Router.

In the end, the choice is always yours!
