I've heard they tend to confuse americans.
Think of them as "traffic lights where you can turn right on red if it's clear" and then swap the sides of the road. They can work a lot more effectively than lights, if designed right.

When I had 25Mb/s I could still stream (Roku) on two TV's at once. All this sales pitch that you need 100 Mb/s200 Mb/s 980 Mb/s - I don't get it - unless you're sharing with an entire sorority or something (in which keys I, at least, would be busy with other things).
Basically, with net congestion as it is, who'll send you data fast enough to need much of that at all? Spammers and telemarketers, I guess.
I specifically requested a straight up router (no wifi) from my ISP and have always used my own router for wifi. Mostly this is because I run several web services through a static IP and need to manage the routing to the server. Even if they had delivered the wifi capable router, it probably would have the settings I needed. (or the option to turn off DHCP and wifi)
Welcome to the new age! I would hate to have to reset all the wifi devices in my house...last time I looked there were around 30 devices. (2 phones, 6 tablets, 1 doorbell, 3 alexas, 3 tv receivers, multiple laptops, a dozen light bulbs, etc.)
