Wireless Performance and the Active Difference
DO NOT judge your service by your Wi-Fi connection…… Wireless speeds can vary dramatically for many reasons especially in condensed living areas.
At Activenet we understand the frustration associated to slow internet speeds, however there are things we cannot help. The reason Internet Service Providers are unable to guarantee internet speeds on wireless is that there are so many contributing factors which impact performance e.g. Cordless phones, Microwave, Air Conditioners/Heaters with wireless connection, walls, distance from device to modem etc….. The only true way to test your actual service speed is to connect directly to your modem.
With the above aside there are ways we can help. Wireless has two different radio wavelengths, 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz. The most commonly used frequency is 2.4Ghz which is also the radio band that is impacting many users. In 95% of cases when you experience slow speeds while connected via Wi-Fi, connecting directly into the modem will, in some cases, improve performance by up to 500%. The way to improve your wireless performance is to have a modem/router that can transmit dual radio wavelengths (2.4Ghz and 5Ghz), The issue is these devices are well over $300.
