Here’s How To Set Up Your Home Broadband & Utilities Easily

Follow these steps for a hassle-free process.

Congratulations on getting your new home! If you’re feeling both excited and anxious, that’s normal. After all, there are still many things you have to settle before moving in.

If you haven’t begun thinking about home solutions and utilities, well, it’s time to do so. First-time homeowners commonly search for the best broadband providers in Singapore, but consider asking yourself a different - and perhaps even better - question: are there any all-in-one service providers?

Good news: M1 is one such digital service provider. They cover wireless broadband, smart home devices, and even electricity plans following a tie-in with Keppel Electric - just about everything you need to get your home in move-in condition. Read on to find out just how easy M1 can make it for you!

Start with a strong foundation: fast and stable wireless broadband connection

Be it for gaming, making full use of your Netflix subscription, or attending online meetings, a fast and stable Wi-Fi connection is the foundation of any household. The recommended broadband speed in Singapore is 1Gbps to ensure smooth usage.

You may think high broadband speeds = high cost, but that’s not necessarily true. At only $39.90 per month (for a 24-month subscription), M1 has one of the cheapest 1Gbps fibre broadband subscription rates across the country. You can connect more devices, enjoy faster download speeds, and experience little to no lag while playing your favourite FPS games.

If, however, you are concerned that your new home may have potential dead zones, consider integrating a mesh Wi-Fi system. A mesh Wi-Fi router will provide better coverage within your home and is the ultimate solution to this problem. Instead of spending time scouring for one, simply top up an additional fee (from $10/month) for M1’s own mesh Wi-Fi router.

This brings us to the next category of things to get for your new home: smart devices.

Next step: connect smart home devices to your fibre broadband

Smart homes are all the rage these days, and for good reason. Not only does it make your life much more convenient, but it also boosts your home’s security and gives you greater control over your energy usage.

Start building your smart home with M1’s packages. By topping up $15/month, you can get a Google Nest Wi-Fi, which comes with built-in Google Assistant and also functions as a smart speaker.

Simply add whichever package you choose onto your fibre broadband subscription, and you’re well on your way to creating a nice, modern home.

Third step: find a plan that covers multiple utilities at once

To make life easier, look for a utilities package that includes both home broadband and electricity, so you can save yourself time and cross off multiple essentials in one transaction.

Yet again, M1’s broadband services can do that for you. Apart from the other add-ons mentioned above, you also have the option of adding electricity plans with Keppel Electric. As a bonus, you’ll get 3 months free 1Gbps fibre broadband subscription (worth $119.70) when you sign up for a 2-year plan!

Finally: have your digital service provider settle the installations for you

There are a thousand and one things to unpack after your move and setting up all the above will only add on to that. It’s also pretty tricky to do so, so if you’re not especially handy with technology, it may just leave you feeling frustrated.

In addition to free delivery, M1 will also settle the installation for everything - and yes, that applies to your mesh Wi-Fi router, smart devices, and even your broadband services! It’s a sure-fire way to ensure a hassle-free experience from start to finish.

Get up to 3 months’ worth of free broadband subscription with M1

From now to 30 September 2021, sign up for any of M1’s broadband plans or home solutions bundle deals and get up to 3 months free 1Gbps broadband connections.

Each of these plans also come with a free Wi-Fi 6 router, with an optional top-up to a mesh Wi-Fi router from $10/month. Find out more about their packages by clicking on the link below!
