$99 for solar-powered wifi repeater
Meraki Networks, pioneer of the first consumer wireless mesh internet network designed to “unwire the world”, today announced the new Meraki Outdoor repeater and the Meraki Solar accessory, that together can cover entire neighbourhoods with wifi access.
Priced at $99 (that’s £50 in real money), Meraki Outdoor can transmit a signal up to 700 feet. When coupled with Meraki’s existing indoor $49 Mini, the Meraki Outdoor repeater can power access for dozens of households sharing one high speed connection. Meraki Outdoor can be easily mounted on a wall or a pole outside the house. According to the company, it marks another step forward in Meraki’s efforts to change the economics of wifi access, reducing the cost per household of high speed connections to $1 to $2 a month.
