I am not sure if I should buy the Ubiquiti Edgerouter 4 or the UniFi USG for 1Gbit fiber and yes that's up and down.

I know that with the UniFi I need a Cloud Key to use, I use UniFi AP's and switches at work.

Edgerouter 4: https://www.ui.com/edgemax/edgerouter-4/
UniFi USG: https://www.ui.com/unifi-routing/usg/

I am thinking about one of the two routers here from Ubiquiti because starting from next year should the fiber in my area should get opened up to more ISP's around the country which means cheaper 1Gbit fiber connections down to about £35/40 a month instead of £58 a month from the company that owns the fiber cables or my current ISP that wants £46.


I don't want a PFSense based router because currently working with them at work and not good experiences with them mainly because they run of all machines and I don't believe my own apu2c4 by PCEngine should have the same problems but I purchased this for some VPN testing but it didn't go off as I hoped with maximum speed about 50Mbit so not gonna use it.

If you want to use IPS/IDS and or QoS the USG won’t do gig at line speed. The edge will because you can’t enable that stuff anyway.

if you want those things you need to wait for the UDM pro to get out of beta.

Looks like the UDM is available at their own eu store.

I cannot read that much about the UDM Pro doe and I hope it's not gonna cost like the USG-PRO-4.

It is. I think the normal UDM can do line rate though with all the bells enabled. You just have to accept an AIO device.

I don't mind a AIO device, and I dropped the idea of encryption my whole networks in and outgoing traffic.
