I've had that Orbi setup for a couple weeks now and my internet speeds are way better. I also have Spectrum 100mps and wiith Orbi I am getting a constant 115-120mps download speed. Coverage seems to be better. My house is concrete block on the first floor so once I go outside performance diminishes some. I have seen a huge improvement in my home network speeds just by adding the Orbi system. Of course individual results may vary.
