Christmas day is a time of kids happily opening their brand-new Xbox, smartphones and tablets, while Mum and Dad clean up their discarded wrapping paper, and Dad tries to actually turn them on.
But have you ever thought about how your router will handle all of those devices connected at once at your house? Will you be able to quickly connect your kid’s new devices and then sneak 10 minutes quiet while they are “plugged in” or will disaster strike and your Wi-Fi simply not cop? Leaving tears and tantrums Christmas morning.
In most cases, your broadband supplier is likely to have provided you with your router. Most routers can manage 6 to 10 devices easily. However, most homes in the UK have at least one device per person, often more than one when including smartphones, tablets and laptops. Add to this the other devices running in your home e.g. smart bulbs, smart thermostats, video doorbells, video game consoles, smart TVs and smart speakers such as Alexa. With all of these devices connected to your one router, it is likely that your router will not cope. If too many devices are connected to your router, it can slow down the speed of the Wi-Fi and in some cases can degrade the internet connection altogether. Combine this with everyone being home over the holidays and using their devices and the chances are your router will not cope.
Do not panic! We can still save the tears and tempers this Christmas morning! There is a solution to a slow internet speed because of all these devices; wi-fi distribution. Our wi-fi distribution solution extends a single seamless Wi-Fi signal throughout your home. Whether your house is large or small, or your wi-fi is struggling to get around (often due to the construction of your house), or simply the numerous devices are too
overwhelming for your router, or you have some devices that are hogging all the bandwidth, Wi-Fi distribution is the way to go.
If this is something you would be interested in then why not give us a call and we can come over and give you a free Wi-Fi survey. Remember WIFI is not just for Christmas seamless distribution is for all year.
