You’re likely reading this because you’re not happy with the speed and provision of your Internet access at home. In some parts of your abode, you find that Internet access is slow at best and just non-existent at other times. You decide you want to test my internet speed, and when you do, the test confirms your slow internet speeds.
Reaching out to your ISP (Internet Service Provider) hasn’t yielded much help, and now you’re unsure what to do next. If you hate your Internet speed and lack of connectivity in certain parts of your home, here’s how to fix the problem with some actionable steps:
Change Your ISP
First of all, if you’re unhappy with the service provision offered by your ISP, it’s time to change to another provider. Doing so means you can get a better level of Internet and customer service. Plus, you could potentially pay less for the same billed access speeds.
Many ISPs exist, so it’s worth doing some research to determine which ones offer the best service. You may even find a provider with an introductory sign-up bonus, such as reduced fees for the first year or a welcome gift.
Get Structured Cabling Installed
Do you have desktop computers in your home or Internet-connected devices like smart TVs that use Ethernet connectivity for Internet access? If the answer’s yes, it makes sense to have some network cabling contractors install structured cabling for you.
Structured cabling is what you’d likely find in modern office buildings, but it’s becoming increasingly popular with homes that demand fast wired Internet connectivity. You can easily upgrade your home to have Ethernet access in every room if you wish.
Upgrade to Mesh WiFi
Now that you have your wired Internet access problems resolved, the next step is to fix your wireless Internet. The trouble with WiFi Internet is that the wireless solutions offered by ISPs for home users are mediocre at best.
Many householders frequently experience problems like short range, slow Internet access, and routers that ‘freeze’ and need to get rebooted due to firmware or hardware problems. You likely experience some (or all) of those issues in your home too!
Thankfully, mesh WiFi or a “wireless mesh network” will resolve all those issues and provide complete and fast wireless Internet connectivity in all areas of your home. In a nutshell, mesh WiFi involves the installation of wireless nodes arranged in a mesh topology.
Mesh WiFi differs from existing WiFi repeater solutions on the market in several ways. Firstly, you don’t have separate WiFi networks that share the same SSID. That means there’s no constant disconnecting and reconnecting from your devices.
Additionally, you won’t experience poor connectivity issues due to still being connected to a WiFi repeater node in another part of your home. Mesh WiFi works by splitting data transmitted across short hops between nodes.
Conventional repeaters do not work cooperatively as with mesh WiFi nodes. That’s why when you first start using mesh WiFi in your home, it will feel like every room is where your main Internet router got installed!
By following the above actionable steps, you’ll soon have supercharged Internet access in your abode. Good luck!
