LBR20 and WiFi 6

I'm really interested in the Orbi LBR20 as I currently have a Netgear LTE modem getting servive from ATT connected to my Orbi RBR50 and satellites. I'm reluctant to invest $400 on a modem to "upgrade" the system if it is not Wifi 6. While I don't currently have devices using the standard, it is obviously the future.  Am I missing something here? Why didn't Netgear release this as WiFi 6?

Re: LBR20 and WiFi 6

You are correct.  This would not be a good investment.

The existing LTE modem feeding RBR50/RBS50 units is superior to the new device.

Product development cycles are so long that this device may have been "in the pipeline" before WiFi6 was ratified.

I love my Orbi.
