Starry Station is $350 and it say it Works with your existing Internet service, including cable, fiber, and DSL.

Starry, seems to be going to offer us gigabyte internet without wires in the future. But there current product which is going to be introduced next month seems to be a very expensive replacement for my $40 Cisco WiFi Access Point and router. It seems to offer only a few diagnostics at a very expensive price.

Am I missing something?

Ambient Mode
With a simple glance, you’ll be able to see your health score and find out if there’s even the slightest issue with your service, Wi-Fi conditions, or any of your devices.

Interactive Mode
When Starry senses that you’re near, the screen changes to show you an overview of your Health Score, Internet speed, and online devices. Starry dynamically runs frequent Speed Tests, so you’ll know if you’re getting the speed you’re paying for.

Device Activity Map
Starry gives you a real-time view of all your connected devices (blue is healthy, red is not) and what’s using the most data. Have lots of devices? Toggle between the Activity Map and List Mode to find what you’re looking for.

ScreenTime
Help your kids learn to balance their time on- and offline with network-level parental controls. You can use presets such as School Nights and Weekends or create your own rules around when certain devices are restricted and when they can be used.

Starry has the answers you’re looking for.

By dynamically monitoring your Internet health, speed, and connectivity, Starry shows you trends over time. Suspect your Wi-Fi is slow at 6 p.m. every day? Curious about the speed you’re getting? With day- , week- , and month-long data views, the answers are at your fingertips.

You were never going to remember TCXQBV!1027TRD24.

Starry displays your Wi-Fi name and password on the touchscreen, so it’s always just a click away. At setup, you can either customize your own or use our Name Generator as inspiration.

Thank you for that article. It's a low cost version of buying a 4K television in 2012 while waiting for the blu-ray disks to come out in 2016.
