TP-Link Delivers Affordable Mesh WiFi to Consumers via Exclusive Relationship with Walmart

May 13, 2019

BREA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 13, 2019--TP-Link ®, a leading global provider of consumer and business networking products, today announced the Deco W2400 Dual Band Whole Home Mesh WiFi System. This 2-pack system provides fast WiFi coverage for your entire home at a budget-friendly price of $99. The Deco W2400 will be sold exclusively at Walmart and Walmart.com, making affordable internet connectivity and reliable mesh technology available to everyone.

“A mesh system is the perfect solution for consumers struggling with WiFi signal who need fast Wi-Fi coverage for their entire home. But, until now, the cost of mesh WiFi has been prohibitively expensive,” said Louis Liu, CEO of TP-Link. “That’s why we are proud to partner exclusively with Walmart in introducing the Deco W2400 Whole Home Mesh WiFi System. The Deco W2400 delivers fast and stable WiFi throughout the entire home, offering a robust solution at a price everyone can afford.”

Covering up to 3,000 square feet and capable of connecting up to 100 different Wi-Fi devices, the Deco W2400 provides a fast WiFi system that keeps devices connected anywhere in the home. With seamless roaming technology, your devices stay under a single network name and password so you don’t need to reconnect simply because you move to a new area in your home.* To help organize WiFi traffic, the Deco W2400 features adaptive path selection (APS), which ensures that each unit always chooses the fastest data stream and directs devices to the optimal WiFi lane.

What’s more, the Deco W2400 is incredibly easy to set-up and manage. Users can quickly get started using TP-Link’s Deco app for iOS or Android. The app offers a location feature that can help you find the best place to put Deco units throughout your home, optimizing coverage. Plus, the app also offers built-in parental controls that allow you to select when certain family members can use the internet and filter out inappropriate content for your kids.

Deco W2400 is a new addition to TP-Link’s Deco family of Whole Home Mesh Wi-Fi Systems. Giving customers a wide range of WiFi solutions to choose from that help fit their needs.
