Upgrading your router to the latest Wi-Fi standard, such as Wi-Fi 6, can significantly improve internet speeds and ensure that you fully realize the speed you’re paying for across all of your devices.

Let’s delve into the details a bit. Older Wi-Fi standards, like Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n, have limitations in terms of maximum speed and bandwidth. For instance, routers with that Wi-Fi standard can only transmit data at speeds up to several hundred Mbps, unable to fully utilize our modern high-speed fiber internet connections. In contrast, the Wi-Fi 6 router that comes with South Slope Wi-Fi can fully deliver our speeds, supporting even the most demanding internet applications like 4K video streaming, online gaming, and video conferencing for those working from home.

Wi-Fi 6 provides additional benefits to enhance overall performance:

  1. Increased bandwidth: Wider channels for more bandwidth, enabling faster data transfer and reduced latency.
  2.  Improved efficiency: Our systems use advanced technologies like MU-MIMO (multi-user, multiple input, multiple output), allowing multiple devices to receive data simultaneously, reducing congestion and improving overall network efficiency.
  3. Better coverage: Beamforming technology focuses the Wi-Fi signal directly towards a device, enhancing signal strength and coverage.

If all of this seems too technical, don’t worry. Our South Slope Wi-Fi service takes the complexity out. Our technicians will assess, install, and optimize your entire home network, ensuring that your internet speeds are fully realized and that all devices on your network benefit from faster speeds, increased bandwidth, improved efficiency, and better coverage.
