Is the router you got from your cable company not cutting it anymore? If it’s slow, laggy and doesn’t cover every room — especially if you live in a two-story house — you're in luck. There’s a way to get a fast internet connection everywhere in your home without being forced to huddle in one room. And this early Prime Day deal makes it more affordable than ever.
Enter the Amazon eero 6 mesh Wi-Fi router, a compact wireless router that gets the job done as seamlessly as possible. It’s on sale for $83, a sweet $46 off for Prime members only. That’s the all-time lowest price for this popular gizmo.
And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
Fast and reliable internet speeds
Here’s how it works: Simply connect this Wi-Fi router to your modem and place it in an open space. Once synced with your internet provider (it’s compatible with most major services), the eero 6 mesh Wi-Fi router can cover up to 1,500 square feet with speeds up to 900 Mbps. Unlike a Wi-Fi extender, which sacrifices speed for coverage, this mesh router can handle both. No lag, hiccups or dropouts! And shoppers are just in love with it.
"This device is super easy to set up and lightning fast," raved a very happy Amazon shopper. "I was able to stream two 4K movies and three HD movies on five devices at once with no lag. Set everything up in less than 10 minutes..."
Multiple device support
The eero 6 mesh Wi-Fi router can support up to an impressive 75 internet-enabled devices, so you can keep building out your smart home with reliable internet signal strength. You can also control all devices on your network with the eero mobile app to give more or less signal strength to devices that might need it.
For example: A Roku Streaming Stick or Fire TV Stick for 4K video streaming might need more speed, while your kids’ laptops could use slower speeds — especially if they’re supposed to be studying instead of watching YouTube videos. It even works with the Echo Dot and Alexa voice assistant for hands-free navigation. It’s also easy to set up!
"This router is amazing! This router was well worth the price and is possibly one of the best purchases I have ever made," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "We were having a hard time getting and keeping connections in certain areas in our home so we decided to try a new router and get rid of the one from the cable company. After researching and comparing different routers, I decided to pre-order the new Eero and try it out. I am so glad I decided on this one because not only did it get rid of our connection issues but it made our internet so much faster!! Both my husband and I agree that we have never had internet this fast! As of right now, I’m thrilled!"
"...This is the best thing ever! We use all streaming services, don’t have good cell phone reception and internet used to lag," added another five-star reviewer. "Since installing the eero 6, we have had no issues and I can’t believe the speeds we are receiving. It’s as if you are plugged into the modem with Ethernet cable everywhere in the house."
Tractable has raised $60 million in a late-stage funding round led by investors Insight Partners and Georgian, which values the British artificial intelligence start-up at $1 billion. Over 20 of the world's top 100 motor insurers use Tractable, the company said, including GEICO, the United States' second largest motor insurer. The COVID-19 pandemic had an impact on Tractable's revenues as fewer drivers on the roads led to lower claims, said Alex Dalyac, Tractable CEO.
The Irish airline and Manchester Airports Group said they will lodge High Court papers on Thursday to seek a judicial review over the transparency of the system, the report said. Under the government rules, travellers returning from green countries take COVID-19 tests but do not need to quarantine. "The current opaque way that decisions are being made is undermining consumer confidence in the traffic-light system and makes it impossible for airports, airlines and other travel companies to plan for the recovery of international travel or work with the government on future reviews," the report quoted the two companies as saying.

The Lilly King Show is headed to Tokyo. In a sport where most athletes obediently stay in their lane, in and out of the pool, King is willing to speak her mind on pretty much any subject that comes her way. As long as she can remember, King has never been too concerned about rubbing others the wrong way.
Bolivia's opposition leader, conservative former President Carlos Mesa, said on Wednesday the country's socialist government was seeking to hobble rivals by trumping up charges they mounted a coup in 2019 against then-leader Evo Morales. Bolivian prosecutors under President Luis Arce, a close Morales ally, have in recent weeks taken testimony from more than 30 former officials over the ouster of Morales, who resigned and fled the country two years ago amid widespread protests. In a power vacuum, he was succeeded by right-wing lawmaker Jeanine Anez, who was interim leader until late last year when Morales' socialist party returned to power.

Dustin Johnson may have missed the cut at the last two majors but the world number one said on Wednesday he still likes his chances at this week's U.S. Open so long as he can control his driving at Torrey Pines. The U.S. Open prides itself as being the toughest test in golf and this week should live up that billing given the thick rough that lines both the narrow fairways and green complexes at the par-71 layout. Johnson, who vanquished the demons of near misses at the majors with his 2016 U.S. Open triumph at Oakmont, has plenty of experience at Torrey Pines but has not exactly thrived on the layout that sits atop the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

This as opposed to the Honda Integra we already knew about that was just like our Acura Integra but with Honda badges sold in different markets. A sedan popped up that looked suspiciously like a mid-90s Honda Civic, but there was a shiny Integra badge on the back of it. The Honda Integra SJ exists, and it’s essentially a rebadged Honda Civic Ferio.
