Google may be giving its OnHub Wi-Fi router a few friends to boost users’ coverage and still have the network all under one umbrella.

Sources to Android Police and Droid Life say that in addition to the several products Google will launch on October 4, we’re also looking at Google Wifi, Google-made routers that will work like what Luma or Eero would with router modules that would expand Wi-Fi signal from the router attached to the modem. Each module would be verified by Google’s signing process and then get added as part of a single network.

Each Google WiFi would put out 2.4 and 5GHz, have dual ports, 802.15.4 and Bluetooth radios and have a max potential of 1.2Gbps. Theoretically, users would have access to smart features like instant bandwidth adjustments and IFTTT automation because it is likely that the OnHub app would control Google WiFi. One device would cost $129.

We aren’t sure if the product will be maintained as just a modular Wi-Fi extender, not optioned for a primary router. Any relative details between Google WiFi and the OEM-made OnHub routers are unclear, if there are any besides app control. We also don’t know if Google will give a discount for multiple unit purchases and, if so, how much of one.

We’ll have a few weeks to figure if the rumors turn out and turn on, but apparently, Droid Life has tips of this project going back a while.
