Today’s smartphones are nothing without a fast Wi-Fi connection, so Huawei is taking things into its own hands. Joining the likes of Google and Samsung, who each have their own mesh Wi-Fi system, Huawei unveiled the Q2 hybrid 5G powerline hybrid home Wi-Fi system, so your new Mate 10 Pro can stream clearly from any room on your house.
Speaking of speedy streaming, the WiFi Q2 “can provide a hybrid connection of up to 1867Mbps by bonding the speed of PLC and mesh Wi-Fi,” which Huawei says makes it the fastest Wi-Fi backhaul network in the world. However, most users will never see anything close to those speeds, as the fastest home broadband speeds max out at around 250Mbps. And most homes have Internet connections that are much slower than that, with average speeds hovering around 50Mbps in the U.S.
