I’m using the D-Link DIR-830L D-Link AC1200 WiFi Router so i did a side by side comparison between the two routers WIFI only since the Portal is design to improve the WiFi experience.
Currently with the D-link i’m averaging between 30-40 Mbps down obviously depends on network usage and airwaves congestion. At peak hours i would drop to 20-30 Mbps. With the Portal i was reaching speeds about 40 Mbps and it was steady, no dips or slowness.
I tested both routers by streaming HD and 4K videos along with gaming and to my surprise i really did notice a difference the D-link would dip in speed randomly while the Portal would stay consistent.
I’m pleasantly surprise that the Portal really delivers what it promises you do see a huge difference with the wireless speed and signal. In the past i never gamed over WiFi due to the usual slowness you get but now with the Portal i don’t have to worry about that.
I highly recommend the portal for anyone who uses lots of wireless devices and lives around many neighbors, I give the Portal a 9 out of 10 a great buy.
you can purchase the portal on Amazon.
