    I love tech and hardware. I'm one of those who has boxes of cables and old routers etc that I can't throw out. I'm really keen to get all over wifi6. There have been routers out since last year. I've found it hard to find one that has solid user reviews and doesnt flake out or get hot etc. Anyone jumped on the wifi6 (AX) bandwagon yet and got a router they'd recommend?

    Also, looking for a new mobile and looking at ones that have wifi6 and 5g. Anyone using 5g?

    p.s I really want one of these but you have to order from China at the moment .... xiaomi ax3600

    Hi,

    Just got 5G mobile broadband last week to use indoors. It’s a Huawei router, but it’s great - getting 250mbps+ speeds sometimes (according to online speed tests)

    EE do a HTC router if the whole Huawei thing puts you off

    I’m an iPhone person, but for 5G Android phones I would go for OnePlus or if you’re into gaming Red magic (very good on price and top spec)

    OnePlus recently released a cheaper 5G phone at less than £400, worth a look

    If you wait until September, I’m sure iPhone 12 will have 5G.
