What is the difference between this the Velop Intelligent Mesh system and the Velop Whole Home system aside from cost?

If I can replace the modem I rent from my ISP with the AC1300, does it support dual bands - 2.4 and 5GHz?

I have EE Broadband with an OpenReach modem and EE WiFi router. The Velop connects to the modem and I have EE Broadband with an OpenReach modem and EE WiFi router. The Velop connects to the modem and authenticates using PPPoE - the WiFi router is not needed. If you have a combined router/modem as supplied with more recent broadband services you would need to put the router into bridge mode so it does the authenticating with your ISP but nothing else. Your Velop node plugs into the router and takes over networking duties. Do an internet search on how to do this. The answer to your second question - does it support 2.4 and 5GHz bands - is yes, it does.
