I have Verizon's latest router for the 3 services. I want to increase the range and was looking into the Netgear Mesh router over Orbi. Can I use the mesh router with Fios? Has anyone used it yet? Thanks

Saying "Orbi" and "Netgear Mesh Router" make me think of the same thing, since the Orbi is a Netgear product. Is there something specific you're looking for?
Any router can be used with FiOS. The only requirement is that you must keep a FiOS router in the mix if you have FiOS TV service (especially with the VMS/Quantum boxes). Ideally the FiOS router stays as the primary and you use a mesh product or an access point to extend the coverage of your Wi-Fi network, disabling the FiOS router's Wi-Fi if it is unneeded.

However the one verizon sells is locked down to Fios as in another post where they could not get a firmware update from Verizon and Netgear had one which could not be used on the Verizon bought one.
