Granted, WiFi broadband have a lot of perks, but they ain’t perfect. This minute you may be enjoying fast internet connections, the other minute; you are struggling to load a webpage.

If you recently subscribed to an internet WiFi plan and are experiencing fluctuations in internet speed or your signal is weak, you should contact your provider as soon as possible.

Keep in mind that the issues you may be experiencing may not be from their end. Well, if that is the case, there are few things you can do to improve your signal strength. We are going to be looking at some of them in this article.

Router capacity

All routers aren’t made the same.

While there are (High end) models that can deliver stable internet connections to a home or office with lots of multiple devices, others will struggle with the needs of a single user.

So, if you are really serious about getting the most out of your WiFi plan, you should consider investing in a high-quality router.

Performance boosting features

See, you are never going to regret purchasing a high-quality router.

Many high-end modern routers on the market have unique features that enhance their performance. Below are some of these features.

  • Beamforming
  • Quality of service
  • Mimo

Note that older router models don’t have or support some of these features. If you have a new model that has these features, you may have to activate them manually.

Bandwidth Anchor

The reason why you are experiencing poor internet connection may not be because your signal is low or your router isn’t working properly. What you do on the internet can drastically reduce your internet speed.

For example, if you are streaming 4k videos on multiple devices, your internet speed is going to reduce.

To ensure that you enjoy a smooth browsing experience, you should be wary of bandwidth anchors.

Obstructions

Do you know that WiFi signals can be obstructed or blocked? Experts have found that objects like furniture, walls, ductwork and people can block WiFi signals.

Interference

Appliances like baby monitors, phones, radios, walkie-talkies, microwaves, and a few other devices can interfere with your WiFi signal. The reason for this is that they share the same RF band of electromagnetic spectrum, as the above devices.

Even with the best internet WiFi plans, there is no assurance that you will have a stable internet connection every time. Applying the tips discussed in this article will go a long way in helping you improve your WiFi signal. And if after your best efforts nothing changes, you should consult your provider or an expert.
