Re: Request for WiFi 6E or WiFi 7 on Roku Ultra

It makes zero sense for me to switch to another wireless provider. Because, I also have verizon fios bundle for internet. I get a pretty good discount of internet and wireless. Unless, AT&T, t-mobile, or Google runs fiber in my area, I will be staying put with verizon.

Re: Request for WiFi 6E or WiFi 7 on Roku Ultra

I personally would love to see ROKU make their players or at least the ULTRA player with WiFi 6 or WiFi 6E option. The WiFi 6E option would be preferable since many advanced networks these days are 6E networks that are by their design, able to carry significantly more data over their wireless connections and thus would allow for less interference from the plethora of other devices that connect to wireless networks and this would also help many who are in an apartment type situation where there are a ton of 5G network devices nearby and so 6E would offer a great advantage! It's sad to see that ROKU's Main competitor has already come out with WiFi 6 connectivity! You'd think that ROKU would be on top of things and stay competitive but that doesn't appear to be the case? unfortunately....

Don't forget about WPA3. Roku forces you to have a less secure environment. Wireless 6 came out in 2019 and brought WPA3.
