Singtel WiFi Mesh

We have received several questions about WiFi Mesh and would like to share more about its benefits with everyone here!

WiFi Mesh ensures consistent video streaming from any part of your home. It helps to ensure wider home WiFi coverage without the need for wiring or trunking. Unlike WiFi range extenders or boosters, the smart WiFi Mesh technology enables the devices to “talk” to one another to select the best wireless transmission path for your device from any corner of your home. With band steering capabilities, it switches your device to the optimum band (2.4GHz/5GHz) whenever you move from one room to another, ensuring seamless wireless surfing. WiFi Mesh can be easily connected to a Singtel-issued router to extend WiFi coverage in your home.

On the other hand, range extenders or boosters like home plugs are more suited for boosting WiFi connection in designated rooms in the house. For better connection in an extended number of rooms, you’ll need to daisy chain the home plugs, although it may lead to poorer performance of wireless connection. Also, the SSID is different for the homeplugs, even if they are configured to have the same SSID. Lastly, since there is no AP steering, there’s no guarantee that you will be able to obtain seamless connection in all parts of your house.



Benefits of WiFi Mesh:
  1. Easy, wireless setup – Just plug and play. No additional configuration or wiring is required.
  2. Better WiFi coverage – Each WiFi Mesh device expands WiFi coverage at home
  3. Stay connected constantly – Access Point and Band Steering features ensure seamless and constant connectivity to the best WiFi signal.




Singtel Broadband customers can purchase the WiFi Mesh at any Singtel shops and Singtel Exclusive Retailers!
