How Wi-Fi Boosters could help in your home
See examples of how a Telstra Smart Wi-Fi Booster Gen 3 can improve Wi-Fi in different homes.
Helping a big household stay connected at the same time
The Joneses are a big family in a big house. In their home, there are often three or four people online at the same time. As their house is so large, their Wi-Fi connection was weak in some parts of the home.
To address this issue, the Joneses took up a Telstra nbn plan and added a Wi-Fi Booster for only $12 a month. With the included Wi-Fi coverage guarantee, the Joneses were able to get in-home tech support and an extra booster, to help them make the most of their nbn connection in every room.
Boosting Wi-Fi through double-brick wall
Kaya and Ty recently moved into an old, solid brick apartment building. Because the interior walls are so thick, the Wi-Fi signal from their modem struggled to penetrate the brickwork between rooms.
To remedy this, Kaya and Ty added a Wi-Fi Booster to their Telstra internet plan for $12 a month. As our boosters use the latest Wi-Fi 6 mesh and come with a Wi-Fi coverage guarantee, Kaya and Ty now get Wi-Fi coverage in every corner of their apartment. Take that, brickwork!
Bending Wi-Fi around corners
Amy rents a long, L-shaped house. Her modem connection point is in her front room, so she can get great Wi-Fi speeds there. But her office is at the other end of her L-shaped house, where the Wi-Fi connection is weak and the speeds are slow.
To help to ensure she can get better speeds from her nbn connection in her office, Amy added a Smart Wi-Fi Booster Gen 3 for $12 a month and placed it in her hallway. Now she can make the most of her Wi-Fi from one end of her L-shaped house to the other.
Frequently asked questions
A Wi-Fi Booster is a device that boosts or extends your Wi-Fi coverage to areas in your home or office where the modem signal is low.
Wi-Fi Boosters work by pairing or ‘meshing’ with your compatible Telstra Smart Modem and amplifying its signal. Your modem and boosters then work as a single Wi-Fi network with better coverage and improved Wi-Fi speeds.
Telstra Smart Wi-Fi Boosters are exclusive to Telstra customers on an eligible nbn plan and only work with these compatible Telstra Smart Modems:
- Telstra Smart Modem 1.1 (DJA2030)
- Telstra Smart Modem Gen 2 (LH1000, DJA2031)
- Telstra Smart Modem Gen 3 (Cobra XH)
Telstra Smart Wi-Fi Booster Gen 3 is also compatible with Telstra Smart Wi-Fi Booster Gen 2.
How do I get the free modem upgrade if I don't have a compatible modem?
If you're on an eligible nbn plan and you don't have a compatible Telstra Smart Modem, then you'll also automatically receive a $0 upgrade to a compatible Telstra Smart Modem 3 when you add on the Telstra Smart Wi-Fi Booster 3.
Wi-Fi 6 is the next generation of Wi-Fi. It lets you run many more devices at once on a single network – from Ultra HD TVs and gaming consoles to smart appliances – at faster speeds.
Wi-Fi 6 mesh works by ‘meshing’ your modem and boosters together into one powerful Wi-Fi network. There’s no manual switching from modem to booster: once set up, devices automatically receive optimised coverage as you move around.
Once meshed, place your booster where you need more Wi-Fi coverage - all you need is a power outlet.
Yes, if you’re not happy with your home Wi-Fi coverage and we can’t fix it for you with extra support and hardware, you can cancel your remaining booster repayments without further charge. Any additional boosters must be returned within 14 days when you cancel. We will send you postage paid return satchels to do this. A $200 non-return fee applies.
Yes, if you’re moving to an address where you can connect to Telstra nbn and you take up an eligible nbn plan with us, your Smart Wi-Fi Boosters will mesh with the new Telstra Smart Modem 3 that is included for use with your new home internet service (excl. 5G Home Internet). If you leave within 24 mths, simply return your modem or pay a $200 non-return fee.
If you have lots of users at home with lots of devices connected to your modem’s Wi-Fi, or a larger, non-standard home with low coverage areas, then a Wi-Fi Booster can help.
Wi-Fi Boosters work by amplifying your modem’s signal, giving you better coverage and improved Wi-Fi speeds.
Telstra Smart Wi-Fi Booster Gen 3 comes with our Wi-Fi guarantee that you'll get wall-to-wall coverage - or you can cancel with no further charge.
Wi-Fi extenders, also called Wi-Fi repeaters, take your modem’s Wi-Fi signal and re-broadcast it. This usually means you'll see two network names on your devices - the modem and the extender – and you'll need to switch between them manually as you move between the two.
Wi-Fi Boosters are different because they pair or ‘mesh’ with your existing modem and create a single, enhanced Wi-Fi network. Your devices only see one network name and can move seamlessly from modem to booster signal as you move around the house.
