Final notes: Which model should I choose?

If you’re on a tight budget, the AVM FRITZ!Repeater 600 is an excellent choice, as for just over £30 you can effortlessly extend the range of your Wi-Fi connection. However, bear in mind that this repeater is limited to the Wi-Fi 4 standard, and has a significantly lower peak speed.

Overall, for the average user who wants to extend their Wi-Fi connection and who will be connecting multiple devices at the same time, and performing bandwidth-hungry tasks, the FRITZ!Repeater 1200 is the better alternative of the two. Personally, I’d go for the latter. Yes, it’s more expensive, but it offers higher performance, and has a clearly superior level of features.

If Wi-Fi 5 is not essential for you, or if you are going to make a rather basic use of the Wi-Fi connection in the areas where you are going to extend it, the AVM FRITZ!Repeater 600 would be the winning option, without a doubt.
