Singtel WiFi Mesh is a broadband add-on that helps users mitigate Wi-Fi dead zones within their home, improving customers’ surfing experience.

“APAC registered the largest absolute growth in internet user numbers with an impressive 12% year-on-year growth, the global operators are seeking for more stable and reliable broadband solutions to satisfy their customers, and AirTies meet the market needs. In Singapore, we are pleased to be working exclusively with Singtel, the largest broadband provider in the country,” said Philippe Alcaras, CEO, AirTies.

Singtel WiFi Mesh with Client Steering technology actively switches devices seamlessly between APs (access points) dynamically, to improve Wi-Fi performance from any corner of your home.

Unlike Wi-Fi 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 or 5GHz) whenever you move from one room to another, to ensure seamless wireless surfing.

WiFi Mesh can be easily connected to a Singtel-issued router (Aztech 7000, 7002, 7003 and 7009) or your own router to extend Wi-Fi coverage in your home.

AirTies was at CommunicAsia in Singapore and I got a peak at the range of Wi-Fi mesh boxes they have on display.

Depending on your home layout and size, you can choose the number of WiFi Mesh devices you need at home.

“We launched Singtel WiFi Mesh to enhance our superior broadband coverage and connectivity for some of our customers with multi-level homes or complex home layouts. Singtel WiFi Mesh expands and optimises coverage so our customers can enjoy their Singtel Broadband and TV services to the fullest,” said Goh Seow Eng, Managing Director of Home at Singtel’s Consumer Singapore group.

A Basic Dual Pack comprises 2 WiFi Mesh devices and is available to Singtel Fibre Broadband subscribers as an add-on at $10 per month over 24 months (or S$238 one-time). Setup cost is free.

The Basic Dual Pack is adequate for 4/5-room HDB/Condominium apartments.

For larger apartments or multi-storey landed properties, subscribers can get the Basic Dual Pack plus additional devices at $5 per month each, over 24 months (or S$120 one-time).

10Gbps Fibre Broadband plan customers can get Singtel WiFi Mesh free.

Although the devices work with any Internet connection, you have to be a Singtel Fibre Broadband subscriber to purchase the devices from the telco.
