Whole home wi-fi solutions are all the rage nowadays, and every major network gear provider has skin in the game—and so does Google. Even Apple’s Airport and AirPort Extreme products offer similar functionality, and the price point doesn’t seem to be as big of a deal as it used to be.
What’s more interesting, though, is that our houses aren’t really getting bigger. I mean, per capita, average square footage doesn’t seem to have increased at the margin that the need for whole home wi-fi solutions indicate they may have. What has changed, though, is the need to always be connected regardless of where in your house (or your yard) you happen to be.
