It’s that magical time of year again! Which means we can all officially eat chocolate and watch lots of movies without feeling bad about it.
It’s also party time. So, if you’re thinking of hosting a holiday gathering at your place, don’t let the fear of bad internet affect your festivities.
This Christmas, Fibre Heroes are here to make sure your house is ready for epic holiday gatherings. Whether that’s the ultimate festive gaming session, the party with the best sounding tunes streamed seamlessly, or a Harry Potter binge in Ultra HD. Get your Megabits ready for the mega bits this season by following these simple steps:
Make your router the centre of attention.
As in, actually get it to a central location so you can give the signal the best chance of being evenly distributed through your home.
You could also elevate your router.
The higher the router, the better the signal will be.
Extend your WiFi with either a repeater or extender.
This will amplify the signal and extend its range so more people in your home can use it.
Make sure your routers firmware is up-to-date.
Manufacturers often release firmware updates that improve performance and security.
Give your router a bit of a re-start before your Festive gathering.
This will help to clear any temporary bugs or glitches that may be there, but that you may not know about.
For the more techy broadband users, you could get your hands on a WiFi analyser.
This will troubleshoot any problems you may have with your WiFi and router: it will show you signal strength, channel usage, and other information that will help you improve your Wi-Fi performance.
Of course, you can also just get ultrafast full fibre internet and then you’ll have enough megabits for everyone to stream on their devices seamlessly. ‘Tis the season to Eat, Stream & Be Merry!
