Amazon Eero, which makes some of our favorite Wi-Fi systems, launched two new Wi-Fi systems today: the Eero 6+ and Eero Pro 6E. Both routers offer gigabit speeds and, like Eero's other routers, can be configured as single device Wi-Fi systems or paired with multiple satellites to cover more space.

Amazon’s Eero makes regular appearances in our Wi-Fi coverage — we’ve recommended its routers for Wi-Fi systems in general, Wi-Fi 6 systems and mesh Wi-Fi systems. Here’s what to know about both of Amazon Eero’s new devices.

Amazon Eero Pro 6E Wi-Fi system

The Eero Pro 6E system is the company's “most advanced Wi-Fi system ever,” the company says. It’s also its first Wi-Fi 6E-enabled system — meaning it can tap into more portions of the wireless spectrum that the FCC had previously closed off for Wi-Fi 6 systems. The tri-band connection — which includes the 6-gigahertz band and the 2.4- and 5-gigahertz bands — can handle more than 100 devices at once, Eero says. And it can do so at speeds as fast as 2.3-gigabit-per-second speed, according to the company, broken down into 1 gigabit per second for wired devices and 1.3 gigabits per second for wireless devices. It also works with Alexa as a smart home hub for compatible Thread and Zigbee devices.

  1. Each Eero Pro 6E covers 2,000 square feet
  2. The 2-pack covers 4,000 square feet and is available for $499
  3. The 3-pack covers 6,000 square feet and is available for $699

Amazon Eero 6+ Wi-Fi system

Eero says this Wi-Fi 6 system is their most affordable system supporting gigabit speed, and the dual band connection — 2.4- and 5-gigahertz bands — can support 75+ devices on its connection. Like the Eero Pro 6E, it can be used as a smart home hub with certain Thread and Zigbee devices.

  1. Each Eero 6+ covers 1,500 square feet
  2. The 2-pack govers 3,000 square feet and is available for $239
  3. The 3-pack covers 4,500 square feet and is available for $299

If you’re interested in Wi-Fi 6E but less so in Amazon’s Eero, other Wi-Fi brands we’ve recommended, like Netgear, offer Wi-Fi 6E routers right now: Netgear’s Tri-Band Nighthawk WiFi 6E Router has earned a 4.1-star average rating from more than 5,000 reviewers on Amazon.
