The rest of the email contained claims of Wi-Fi speed improvement of 300 to 400% "relative to testers’ old equipment. There was also a nod to Google’s OnHub announcement with some competitive positioning of eero’s multi access point solution vs. Google and all other single router solutions.

Pricing via Amazon is still at $199 for a 1-pack and $499 for a 3-pack, with availability still showing "This item will be released on December 1, 2015".
