Wi-Fi 7 routers are already arriving and they are not cheap

TP-Link showed the models compatible with this standard, which will be sold from next year.


Wi-Fi 7 is not officially certified, but several companies are already introducing the standard with their product line.

MediaTek “opened fire” with its Wi-Fi 7 compatible Dimensity 9200 mobile chip and now TP-Link is joining in with routers.

TP-Link showed its new line of routers, with models ranging from home use to business.

One of these routers is the Archer BE90 0, with which it promises speeds of up to 24 Gbps on Wi-Fi 7.

The futuristic design of this router reminds us of NVIDIA ‘s RTX 40 series cards .

The Deco BE-85 and BE-95 mesh systems were also presented , with speeds of up to 33 Gbps in the latter.

These were the models with a pre-sale price and date, although TP-Link is also listing more Wi-Fi 7 routers .

Wi-Fi 7 routers: How much do they cost?

The Archer BE900 router will start at $699.99, while Deco models start at $999.99 (two-pack).

These products will be on pre-sale in the United States beginning December 31 of this year, with shipments to be made in the first quarter of 2023.

Wi-Fi 7: How common will it be?

This standard is expected to be on more devices by 2024.

“( Wi-Fi 7) will be installed in computers like laptops by 2024…we expect it to appear in large markets in 2025,” Eric McLaughlin, vice president of Intel’s wireless solutions division, said during a conference for the Asia Pacific region.

The first to benefit from Wi-Fi 7 will be the users of high-end phones to be launched during 2023.
