5 Reasons Why StarHub Smart WiFi with Nokia Beacon 1 is the best for our home

Update: Did you read about the latest StarHub Smart WiFi Pro? Faster and even better! 

WiFi is as important for life as food, water and air! – Well, I might be exaggerating a bit but honestly, that’s the case with many [or most] of us. Especially during this Covid-19 period when country is under #circuitbreaker, we need WiFi more than ever. I am so so happy that we got StarHub Smart WiFi exactly when it is so much required.


When we moved to our new home before 3-4 months back, one thing we immediately noticed that the signal of the our WiFi was strong only in the living room. Ours is supposed to broad-band and hi-capacity WiFi as per the provider but it just didn’t work properly in Master bedroom, Kids room. So imagine, if we are relaxing in other rooms, it’s always our Data plan that we had to burn! Not done…Being in IT, we played with our routers and all but alas, it just didn’t give us better connectivity from most parts of the home. In fact, can you imagine that network just used to freeze with no signal when we moved from one room to another. Dead spots as they call it as. Time to get a MESH WiFi SYSTEM that addresses coverage problems within the home – we already knew!

When we searching for a few options for a mesh WiFi system, some of our friends recommended that why not we try out StarHub Smart WiFi. They were using it and really liking it. So we visited our nearest StarHub store and got started with our StarHub Smart WiFi. We were thinking that there is going to be a long procedure, documentation, setup before we actually start getting benefited from it but no, it’s so straightforward to ensure that there are no more WiFi woes at your home.


5 reasons why StarHub Smart WiFi really works for our home:

1. High speed WiFi from every part of the home:

StarHub Smart WiFi reaches every nook and corner of your home and what you get is a seamless and smooth experience. Video streaming or browsing social media or playing games have never been such a joy. No more drops or dead spots or disconnections of network in our home after setting up StarHub Smart Wifi.

I’m sure there must be still disruptions and uneven speed of Internet from the ISP’s side but StarHub Smart Wifi Mesh system monitors congestion, interference and signal strength and switches WiFi channels and frequencies automatically for the best data routes in every part of the home.

Parental controls as well as a WiFi heat map to help you identify the best location for your Smart WiFi units are added advantages. The app has an integrated customer care system in the form of a 24/7 in-app live chat. It indeed allows you and to seek expert technical help. Wow! it’s the first of its kind in Singapore.
