New Netgear Subscription Service

Just learned about the upcoming Game Booster product coming this spring from Netgear.

$50 annual subscription after 30 day trial. Yet another fun thing for the Orbi 'app' to manage.

(It's toward the bottom of this article: https://gizmodo.com/netgear-has-a-new-slightly-cheaper-wi-fi-6e-router-1848278849 )

I love my Orbi.

Wondering how this will compete with NGs XR gaming routers though. Of course, for those with Orbi, something they can add later on as a feature.

Re: New Netgear Subscription Service

I'm a little nervous by the number of additional subscription services Netgear is launching. A live ping map I'm sure costs them (some) money to maintain, but let's be clear the rest should be part of the features of the router, I.e. that piece of hardware we pay $1000+ to own.
