I would suspect, that just like range extenders/repeaters, the mesh routers increase rebroadcasting signals, dropping (halving) throughput? I'm an advocate of powerline adapters (now up to 1000mbps), some models have a wifi secondary, which provide a range extender type functionality, but without the loss of speed of repeating. WDS also has been available on many brands for some time, providing mesh functionality. Another question would be how interoperable the brands are, is there a standard for mesh?
