WHY IS MY INTERNET AT HOME SO SLOW?

Most of us have faced this problem some time or another in our lives and we get so frustrated about it, especially after making a complaint to our service provider but there is still no change. Well, SHOUT! would like to share with you some new devices that might help improve your internet speed at home without the intervention of your service provider!
Sometimes, the wireless router provided by your service provider is not able to cater to the myriad of connected devices at home, this includes the laptops, the smartphones, the gaming consoles, the Smart TVs etc. This wireless router sometimes needs to be changed or maybe to be supported by other devices to meet the growing needs of your household. As the service providers will only provide basic connectivity to your home, here are some off-the-shelf devices that you might want to consider.

BAND WIRELESS ROUTERS

When dual-band routers can no longer do the job, these tri-band ones will help smoothen things up. This is especially true if you have multiple devices that are new and able to handle 5GHz  Wi-Fi. Wireless HD video streaming on these devices should be a breeze with this type of router.

WIRELESS RANGE EXTENDER/ ACCESS POINT

Wi-Fi signals can be blocked by walls or household equipment and the quality of the signal degrades over distance. There are instances where you might need to boost the Wi-Fi signal so that it reaches that room at the farthest corner of your house. This is where these wireless range extenders come in!

WHOLE HOME WI-FI SYSTEM

There are some of us who frown at the sight of a wireless router with their weird-looking antennas. For those looking at having good Wi-Fi coverage all around the house but also want to make sure that whatever equipment needed fits the décor and room colour can now opt for a whole home Wi-Fi system.
