Google Wifi uses access points you can place throughout your home instead of a single router.

When we reviewed Google Wifi in 2016, we called it "the best way to blanket your entire home with Wi-Fi." Starting Tuesday, more countries will get to take advantage of Google's fast, user-friendly mesh Wi-Fi system.

After expanding to Spain and Austria last week, Google Wifi is launching in the Philippines, Italy, and Portugal on Tuesday. Google Wifi helped popularize mesh Wi-Fi systems, which use overlapping signals from multiple access points to blanket a large home in Wi-Fi, instead of relying on a single router to complete the same task.
