Router price analysis: Amazon Australia vs Australian retail

We've compared routers from Amazon Australia to see how their prices stack up against other Aussie retailers.

While it’s easy to accept the router your broadband provider offers you, there’s usually much better options out there to suit your networking needs. For example, if you are moving onto an NBN connection, you may need or want to upgrade to a compatible FTTN router.

Maybe you’ve got a larger house and need multiple connection points. In that case, you might be looking for a mesh network like Google Wi-Fi or Linksys Velop. If you’re not looking to fork out the extra cash for a router, you can also see what providers offer over at our broadband plan comparison.

Whatever your needs, we’ve rounded up the most popular routers in Australia and stacked them up side-by-side so you can compare prices.

Prices were last checked between 20 Dec 2017 and 22 Dec 2017 and may be subject to change. Prices include any discounts but exclude potential shipping charges.
