Telus Builds Wi-Fi 6 Router

Here's an oddity. Telus has introduced Wi-Fi 6 (802.11 AX), but their router is an in-house design. An extender is available, but its origin is not discussed.

And somebody loves the design.

Red Dot Design Award: TELUS Wi-Fi 6 Access Point (

Please, somebody, I hope you have a first-hand report on the devices.

I doubt that Telus fully designed that access point, or is it a mesh node? It looks suspiciously similar some other mesh nodes but with a more esthetic case.They may have designed the case or hired a manufacturer to do a design/build. Even Apple, the biggest high tech company on the planet, goes that route. It would not be cost effective for Telus to invest the amount of money required to fully design a new wifi 6 router, not to mention foolish, as wifi 7 routers are just a couple of years away. In any case, wifi 6 is a nice upgrade over wifi 5.
