Starry WiFi Station Specifications and Release Date

Starry, Inc., a Boston- and New York-based technology company focused on revolutionizing how consumers connect to the internet, today unveiled its first consumer product, Starry Station. Starry Station is the world’s first ambient touchscreen Wi-Fi hub, beautifully designed to provide users with a window into their home’s internet health, Wi-Fi conditions and device connectivity, all through an interactive 3.8” capacitive touchscreen.

Loaded with features including Starry’s internet Health Score, full internet health monitoring system and built-in persistent auto-speed test, Activity Map and Device Finder, ScreenTime parental controls, and customer support assistance available at a tap, Starry Station is built with a dual radio that is 802.15 ready for future IoT features and has the ability to support a wide range of connected devices in your home or business. With Starry Station, users have the ability to understand, at a glance, how their internet and Wi-Fi connections are performing at all times.

Starry Station will retail at $349.99 and people will be able to reserve at Starry.com until February 5. After February 5, Starry Station will be available for sale on Starry.com and pre-order on Amazon Launchpad, Amazon’s innovative program for startups. All orders will begin shipping in March 2016.

“For most people, access to the internet and Wi-Fi is essential to the way they live and work,” said Alex Moulle-Berteaux, Starry Chief Marketing Officer. “Yet the connection to it is a hard-to-use utility box. We created Starry Station to completely reimagine the user experience. We wanted to improve reliability and give people visibility into their internet and Wi-Fi, through our ambient touchscreen display. Now people can see speed, health, and usage and not be in the dark about connectivity issues. Our belief is, if consumers have a better understanding of how their internet and Wi-Fi is performing, we can help improve performance and make life a little easier. Starry Station is our answer to a market that has long ignored design and usability.”
