“We have about 1000 SQ ft single level condo and cable internet. The cable line comes in through the back of our place but we do most of our work, TV, security camera in the front. We didn't want to have to run an ugly cable line through our home and have the modem visible in the living room. Now the modem and router are in a closet in the back and we get big speeds in the front with just one Bee in the living room.”

“My router is on the second floor of my house; because of the distance, I always had connection problem in the basement. Most of the time there’s no signal at all. The M2 hive system I bought from Mercku successfully solved the problem. After placing a Bee in the basement, I now can enjoy an internet speed at around 20M, allowing me to surf, voice chat, and play mobile game .”
