Amazon is buying popular mesh Wi-Fi company Eero
It's currently unclear how much Amazon's paying for Eero.
Mesh Wi-Fi networks are essential if you want good wireless coverage in a larger home/apartment, and while the market for these routers is huge, Eero has managed to stick out as one of the best options out there. As of February 11, 2019, it's confirmed that Amazon is buying the company.
In a press release issued by Amazon, Senior Vice President of Amazon Devices and Services, Dave Limp, said:
As for how Eero's reacting to the news, here's what its CEO and Co-Founder, Nick Weaver, said:
Around this time last year, Amazon made a similar deal with its acquisition of smart doorbell-maker Ring. Add that together with this new purchase and the company's own efforts with its Echo and Fire TV devices, and it's obvious that Amazon's serious about tackling smart hardware in every way that it can.
It's undisclosed how much Amazon is paying for Eero, but for what it's worth, the company paid $1 billion for Ring last year.
