    For whole home or office Wi-Fi coverage, you should consider upgrading to a mesh network setup. Mesh Wi-Fi connects two or more mini routers or pods that communicate directly with your main router to create a strong and seamless wireless signal throughout your home. They’re easy to install—some simply plug into a wall outlet—or you can get mesh devices that are stand-alone plug-and-play units.

  • How can I upgrade to wireless and achieve faster speeds?

    A router is the gatekeeper to your wireless connection, transforming your Internet connection from wired to wireless. But, the more devices you add to your Wi-Fi, the weaker your signal will become. You can achieve faster speeds by upgrading your router—but how do you know which one is right for the speed you need?

    Single-band routers offer a single band of 2.4GHz and are the most basic, entry-level routers. They’re more affordable, compatible with most devices, and the lower frequency is better at moving through walls, doors and more. If you mainly use your laptop for e-mail or casual browsing, a single-band router is enough to support your wireless needs.

    Dual-band routers provide two separate frequencies—a 2.4GHz band and a 5GHz band. The 2.4GHz is a lower frequency that’s compatible with most devices, and the 5GHz band is a higher frequency that’s designed for achieving speeds that newer tech can reach. If multiple family members or friends are on your network at once, a dual-band router can keep everyone connected at the same time by balancing more devices across both bands. A dual-band router is ideal for quick file transfers, video conferencing, 4K videos, HD streaming and gaming.

    Tri-band routers have three bands to share heavier traffic, which makes them perfect for households or offices that have multiple people connecting simultaneously throughout the day. There’s one 2.4GHz band and two 5GHz bands—ideal for supporting triple the bandwidth and multiple devices without slowdown or interruption. A tri-band router will make your life easier if your family loves streaming Crave or Netflix, or if you have a gamer at home streaming their 4K-gaming marathons.
