Why do I have slow internet?
Worldwide distance learning and work from home have caused this question to be asked more than ever. While there are plenty of things outside of your control (like worldwide network utilization), there are several things you can do in your own home to improve your experience.
Most Internet service providers offer tools to test your maximum internet speed. Test occasionally to ensure there are no issues with your service. They take less than a minute to run. Test are best run on a wired ethernet connection.
If you are consistently getting much less than your contracted speed it is worth contacting your provider. Run these sparingly to minimize impact to others on your network.
This is by far the biggest issue people run into - because there are lots of things that can go wrong. These include interference, signal levels, capacity or device issues. Let TheNetWorks solve your tough Wi-Fi issues.
Learning to monitor your environment will make you a pro! Get started by searching your App Store for a “Wifi Analyzer”. This shows you the signal levels in real time of the access points around you. Just walk around to find locations maximizing your signal while minimizing your neighbors. Ensure signal loss is less than -65dBm (-40 to -65dBm is very good).
