There is more than meets the eye in the Telstra Smart Modem Gen 2. Inside this smart, white box is world-leading connectivity features that can take your home into the future.

Coverage and speed are two of the greatest pain points that disrupt Wi-Fi users the most. Now that we’re all working from home more, having dependable and fast Wi-Fi is super important. That’s why we created the Smart Modem Gen 2 and the Smart Booster Gen 2 to ensure a great home Wi-Fi experience when you need it most.

Today’s connected homes depend on Wi-Fi to deliver a range of services from video calls to online gaming and streaming movies. With all the new connected devices in the home – from TVs right through to security cameras on the edge of the home – we need to make sure that users can connect what matters most quickly, easily and reliably.

We’ve worked hard to make sure that the Smart Modem Gen 2 is one of the most capable home broadband modem around. It’s not only incredibly powerful, but also relentlessly simple to set up.

As soon as you take the Smart Modem Gen 2 out of the box, the 4G mobile backup is ready to go. That means you can connect to the internet as soon as you plug the power in, even if your home service hasn’t yet been activated.

As soon as you switch on, you’ll be able to connect to your new wireless network. Smart band-steering means that a single network name can spread around your home, intelligently switching between 2.4GHz and 5GHz when you connect each individual device so you don’t have to fiddle with the settings.

With EasyMesh built-in, you can use our plug-and-play Smart Booster Gen 2 to create an in-home mesh network for whole-of-home coverage if you need a bit more range. The EasyMesh-compatible Smart Modem Gen 2 creates an environment where you can use your devices around the home without having to worry about where you will and won’t get coverage.

Experiencing consistent coverage means your home is ready to connect a whole range of future-devices, including smart appliances, lighting, sensors and entertainment systems. We’ve also built the Smart Modem Gen 2 and the Smart Booster Gen 2 for speed, with speedy 802.11ac and multiple antenna channels for better performance (4×4 MIMO).
