Our Testing Procedure
In addition to ongoing informal real-world usage testing, we set up a series of formal head-to-head testing scenarios where we measured and compared different combinations of gear.
We took a look at:
- Raw LAN Speeds
- WiFi-as-WAN Speeds
- Mobile Hotspot Tethering Performance
- Wi-Fi Range (Send / Receive)
We also take notes on user interface, reliability and general performance.
