Wi-Fi in Your Home

Location, location, location! There are dozens of things that can slow down Wi-Fi and where you place your router matters. The further the signal has to go, or the more it has to travel through and around, the slower the speeds will be.

Wired is Faster than Wi-Fi

While Wi-Fi has improved over the last five years, it’s still not perfect. A wired connection will always be faster than Wi-Fi. With a wired connection there’s nothing coming between your device and your Internet signal.

Recommended Equipment: DOCSIS 3.0 or higher certified modem. Minimum of eight channels downstream and two channels upstream is advised.

Can your device handle the speed?

Some devices can’t support higher speeds – which slow down all the others. To see what speeds your device can support, check the owner’s manual or perform a web search using its model number.
