Today, Google announced it is bringing Google Wifi to Singapore, in partnership with StarHub. Google Wifi is a mesh networking system that replaces traditional routers, putting an end to dead zones at home and ensuring strong and fast signals for all your connected devices. Singapore is the first country in Southeast Asia to introduce Google Wifi.
Set up and control your network with the Google Wifi app
With Google Wifi, you no longer need to schedule an appointment with a technician to set up your new router. Google Wifi makes it so easy that you can do it yourself. Simply download the Google Wifi app available on Android or iOS and follow the step by step instructions, so you’ll be online in no time.
With the Google Wifi app, you can also see which devices are connected to your network and how much bandwidth they’re using. Streaming your favourite scene from Descendants of the Sun on your TV? Give it more bandwidth and a faster connection by selecting it as a “Priority Device”. Now you can sit back and enjoy that episode uninterrupted by other devices in your home.
Giving you fast Wi-Fi anywhere, anytime
Singapore has the world’s fastest broadband speeds1 but sometimes it may not feel like it. Traditional Wi- Fi routers aren’t always built to support the increasing number of devices we use or high bandwidth activities like gaming or watching videos. Most of us just want our Wi-Fi to work fast at home, without spending time managing our network or pushing the reset button on the router.
With Google Wifi , your device will always be placed on the channel with optimal Wi-Fi connection. Even as you are moving from room to room, Network Assist will automatically transition your device between the Google Wifi system points, keeping you connected to the point with the strongest signal so you avoid dead spots or delays.
Helping your family with special everyday moments
We know it’s tough to put a pause on your kid’s FIFA video game or get everyone to the dinner table. The Google Wifi app lets you pause Wi-Fi on your kids’ devices or create scheduled pauses for dinner time and bedtime, so you can fully engage in that mealtime conversation or squeeze in one more session of bedtime storytelling. Lights out, Wi-Fi out!
Martin Geh, Managing Director, APAC Hardware Partnerships at Google said, “Having a fast and reliable Wi- Fi connection is important to Singaporeans. Google Wifi provides seamless coverage at home, solving common issues like dead zones, spotty Wi-Fi connections, confusing set-up processes and so much more. Parents will also have greater control of their family’s Wi-Fi network, enabling them to spend quality time with their children whenever they want.”
Google Wifi in stores on 31 August
Starting 31 August, customers in Singapore will be able to buy 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.
Mr. Howie Lau, Chief Marketing Officer, StarHub said, “Mesh networking is quickly becoming popular, and we are thrilled to be Google’s exclusive local partner for Google Wifi, which has set the standard for ease-of-use, performance and affordability. With Google Wifi, our home broadband customers can easily enjoy wireless broadband connections at every corner of their homes.”
