Summer’s over, the nights are drawing in and the daily routine has turned from sunny play days to lessons and essays.  It can be a stressful time for parents, pupils and students alike.  The last thing anyone needs is slow internet, buffering and dropped connections.  If you’re a sufferer of these beleaguering symptoms and looking to boost home WiFi speed, you’re not alone!


Are you living with a WiFi whinger?

From research to rushing to submit that crucial project before the deadline, so much of the education system now relies on internet access.  Slow and unreliable WiFi is fast becoming a recipe for added anxiety.  And let’s face it, who needs that extra stress?

For the generation that grew up on iPads, Instagram and Netflix, wireless connectivity is akin to the air we breathe.  And if all is not well, to them the effects could be just as catastrophic.  (A point they probably aren’t shy of vocalising!)

If you’re on the receiving end of a resident WiFi whinger’s frustration, you may be desperately trying to find the best way to boost your home WiFi signal.  The trouble is, there’s a lot of options out there.  Because of this it can be hard to know where to start.


How not to boost home WiFi speed

Based on our customers’ experience, here are some of the typical steps people take to boost their home wireless signal:

  1. Get a cheap wireless signal booster, repeater or extender from Amazon or eBay.  It’s cheap, so worth a try, right?
  2. Spend a bit more and replace your free router with a new all-singing, all-dancing one.  The ad said the WiFi signal would reach Ryan Reynolds in a helicopter several hundred feet up.  Sold!
  3. Realise the above were a frustrating waste of time/money and cry quietly into your latte in despair.

There is good news, though.  It doesn’t have to be like that.


A better alternative to WiFi signal boosters, extenders and repeaters

Enterprise wireless technology has progressed to the point where it is becoming affordable to home users.  So why not take advantage?

Dedicated wireless access points can bring fast, reliable WiFi to wherever you need it.  Even the kids’ bedrooms.  Meaning they will probably get similar wireless speeds to those they are used to at school or college.

That’ll cure the WiFi whinges!
