Welcome to the world of Google Wifi, which is now available in Singapore in exclusive partnership with telco StarHub.
Google’s first foray into home wireless routers backs up the IT giant’s push for the Internet of Things (IoT) with a mesh networking system to ensure users enjoy complete home coverage to all their devices, and Singapore is the first country in Southeast Asia to introduce Google Wifi.
Available from 31 August exclusively to StarHub customers as a three-pack Google Wifi bundle at $15 per month over 24 months when they sign up for or renew selected StarHub Broadband or Hubbing all-in-one plans. Google Wifi, like similar mesh wireless systems, was created to meet the proliferation of smart devices in homes with a single networking system that is powerful, smart and easy to customise – with Google Wifi setting up the nodes and controlling the entire network is simple via the Google Wifi app for both iOS and Android devices.
Each Google Wifi node utilises AC1200 2×2 Wave 2 Wi-Fi network technology with simultaneous dual-band Wi-Fi (2.4GHz/5GHz) supporting IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac. For LAN/WAN connections every node comes with two 1-Gigabit Ethernet ports.
