Google Wants You to Offer their Router

Google designed a new wireless router that it is selling - and is hoping that ISPs will offer it too. The OnHub wireless router has 2 versions - one by Asus and one by TP-Link. (I have a router from TP-Link; it was DOA and the tech support line is always busy.)  The designs for both are really nice. Non-boxy. Looks like Amazon Echo.

The Verge has a nice review. "With the OnHub, Google is trying to solve the three biggest pain points of routers — setup, coverage, and troubleshooting — and build a wireless portal for the future."

Wi-fi is how most people connect to the Internet. Google wants that experience to be better. So should ISPs. A bad wi-fi experience is blamed on who?
