is it worth upgrading to wifi 6 from wifi 5

Im using the RBR50v2 sytem with 2 satellites in a 3 storey house over 3000 sq feet.

Have 200 mbps broadband speed.

Getting over 200mbps nearly everywhere and even at the end of my garden-about 80-90 feet.

Have over 20 devices connected to the router. Is it worth paying double to get the new Orbi WiFi 6 System AX6000?

Im currently using the RBK53|Orbi AC3000 Tri-band WiFi System, only bought in March 2020.

Model: RBK53|Orbi AC3000 Tri-band WiFi System

Its not really going to get you any better speed or coverage if you're already maxing out your speed and able to provide the coverage you need. 

I'd hold off if it was me. 

CAX80->GS716v2->RBR50->RBS50-RBS40V-RBS50Y
