Expert solutions to improve your WiFi connection at home

Here are some quick fixes we recommend to greatly improve and optimise your broadband connectivity at home!

Option 1: Smart WiFi network management by WiFi Mesh



WiFi mesh forms a WiFi network when two or more mesh nodes are within range, thus expanding your home broadband network’s wireless coverage without the need for wiring or trucking. WiFi mesh nodes should be placed a maximum of one wall apart, and in a central position for better coverage and data transmission quality.



Consider WiFi Mesh if you experience WiFi connectivity issues caused by the following conditions:
  • There is a long corridor at your home,
  • You are far away from the wireless router,
  • There are more than 2 concrete walls in between where you are and where the wireless router is, or
  • Your home is a multi-storey property

With the WiFi mesh, you can enjoy a multitude of benefits, including:

Reaching more places at home wirelessly
Each additional WiFi mesh node further expands the wireless coverage. You can simply add more nodes to extend your coverage, based on the size of your house.

Staying connected constantly
Mesh intelligence allows the WiFi connection of your device to be seamlessly relayed to the most optimal node available. The relay process is transparent to you, so you can enjoy fast WiFi connection as you move around in the house.

Doing more on your WiFi
WiFi mesh nodes use the 5GHz band to communicate with each other. This ensures fast connectivity throughout the coverage area. No wiring installation is required between mesh nodes.

Watching Singtel TV on more TV sets
WiFi Mesh lets you watch Singtel TV on more set-top boxes, without additional wiring.

WiFi Mesh is exclusive to Singtel! It is a plug-and-play solution for the home with devices that are pre-paired, so no installation or wiring is required. A pair of WiFi mesh units costs $10 per month on a 24-month contract. Customers living in bigger homes can consider opting for an additional unit at $5 per month on a 24-month contract! Get yours now at any Singtel Shop or Singtel Exclusive Retailer.

Option 2: Access Point to effectively extend your WiFi coverage



Access Point is an additional wireless router that acts as a WiFi extender or repeater by boosting and rebroadcasting the WiFi signal to further locations. Position the access point at a strategic location with an optimised setting and your WiFi coverage can be expected to extend beyond structures such as corners, bomb shelters or zig-zag pathways. What’s more, the Access Point rebroadcasts the same WiFi network ID so you won’t need to switch to another WiFi network as you move within the extended WiFi range.

How do I get an Access Point?.

Our installers will help you install and configure the new wireless router. Also, if your home does not have existing structured cabling and data points in the correct locations, we will also install additional wiring during the surface trunking for the access point.

We hope this helps! If you are still experiencing connectivity issues, you may be facing specific location factors that can largely hinder WiFi transmission.
