The best USB WiFi adaptes for 2022 header image

Small. Yet mighty.

The one little device making a big difference in business connectivity.

The need to have instant access to the internet is now pretty much a staple of most businesses. Customer queries, online invoices, business plans, order status, etc. are but a few aspects that require instant access. The faster you can have access to the online elements of your business, the less time you waste. And time is much more valuable than just being limited in relation to financial transactions, as the phrase ‘time is money’ embodies. A faster connection means you are faster. Problems can be solved quicker, information can be gathered and provided quicker too. Streaming in HD (with the right HDMI output), or even up to 4k is possible. And turnaround times on product updates can also be faster. These are some of the areas which can really add value to your company, and as a healthy byproduct, grow your business further. So, if you’re looking to ramp up the speed up your WiFi connection* on either your laptop or PC, we think our pick of the best USB WiFi dongles/adapters should get you underway.

*Connection speed ultimately depends on the connection speed of your broadband package, and, of course, whether you are in the range of a decent signal.
