I have spectrum 200mb and get full signal everywhere in a 3100 sq ft two story home.
I got that one too. Kind of backed into it by accident - I needed a better system after COVID moved me to WFH, and that was all Costco had left. Figured it was worth a shot, and we've been happy with it.

Is there a mesh wifi system that does not collect and share personal information/browsing history? Does using VPN make this a moot point?

Yes, Unifi is great if you are a techie and like to be able to configure your system exactly the way you want. Eg: different settings on different access points. The Wifi 6 access points are still in "early access" though, ie. beta.
Whenever our Google Onhub bites the dust, I'm considering an mesh from Amplifi - Ubiquiti's consumer line. But so far so good w/ ancient Onhub.
+1 for Amplifi. I don't need mesh as I've got several Ubiquiti APs to cover my house. If I went mesh, I'd avoid the Google one for privacy concerns.

The Wifi6 LR and Lite APs are available for pre-order in the main store now.
