With more and more things becoming possible through the internet to make our lives easier, the more we become reliant on always having internet connection. We’ve reached the point where it’s hard to imagine what life would be without internet, only seeing glimpses of this horror when the Wi-Fi drops.

The internet has infinite uses at this point. From streaming films and music, playing games, communicating with loved ones, to the newest demands of work from home jobs, the strain on your WiFi is consistantly growing. With so much of our daily lives revolving around your broadband, it is vital to have a broadband that can keep up.

Wi-Fi deadzones and slow internet can be a problem of the past with a WiFi Range Extender!

What are Wi-Fi Range Extenders?

Wi-Fi Range Extenders as an simple, afforable add on to your current router to extend your connection further throughout your home. By taking the existing WiFi signals from your router, Range Extenders can then rebroadcast this to cover a larger area than before. For the best results it should be placed between the router and the deadzone to maximize results.

Wi-Fi Deadzones

Do you have areas in your home where the Wi-Fi seems to dissapear completely? These are your Wi-Fi deadzones. This may be due to it being out of reach of the router, or due to the architectural integreity of the house blocking the signal. Luckily, there is a solution to both! A Wi-Fi Range Extender can rebroadcast your signal from a spot closer to this deadzone to increase the strength of the Wi-Fi signal, improving the connectivity available. This can also be useful to enable you to be able to use your Wi-Fi in your garden or garage too!

Slow Wi-Fi

The further you get from your router, the slower your internet becomes. This can be particularly difficult in larger houses where the Wi-Fi has further to travel to get from room to room. By dotting a Wi-Fi Range Extender or two around the home, you can boost the performance of your Wi-Fi for whichever room you’re in. Even without deadzones or slow rooms, a Wi-Fi Range Extender may be beneficial just to upgrade your current Wi-Fi to create even faster speeds or add new features.
