Google even stopped updating the firmware for onhubs as you can see from the latest firmware update, Google onhubs was not part of it.

Wow wasn't aware. Disappointing, considering there's nothing wrong or obsolete about onhub's hardware.

According to this thread, the OnHubs will continue to get security updates, but I guess no new features will be added moving forward.

We have some connectivity issues upstairs, planning to just buy the one and if it's really bad I would drop another $129 for another. Home is about 1200 sq. ft, what do you guys think?
The ASUS will most likely be better since this is a single device. I found two Asus 1900s to be better than three Nest hubs (newer models).
