INTERNET OVERLOAD

It won't be long before children and college students will be back in school, although, unlike last year, they'll likely be able to attend in-person throughout the entire school year. Still, most students will need almost daily access to the internet for school-related activities.

College Students — Students who attend local community colleges are online almost every day, whether they enrolled in an online course or two (or more), or if they need to do research for a homework assignment. Even in-person classes require fast internet speeds to keep up with emails, postings from instructors, etc.

High School, Middle School, etc. — Children at every level, including elementary school, are likely to have assignments that require access to high-speed internet on a fairly regular basis. 

Adults — In the past year, many adults have switched from their corporate environment to working part-time or even full-time from home. Quite a few of the companies they work for are deciding to make these changes permanent. Of course, remote-working adults will still be expected to deliver high-quality results, even though their children may be using the same internet access this fall. 

Leisure Time — In addition to education-related internet access and work-related access, families still want to have plenty of leisure time online access as well. Now more than ever, many households are switching to streaming TV and movies, and they still want to have plenty of bandwidth available to access their favorite social media sites, check email, etc.

IT’S TIME TO UPGRADE

Many people are experiencing slower home internet speeds due to the increase in people using their networks to attend classes and work from home, using up the internet providers bandwidth. Average speeds will only continue to slow as school starts in the next few weeks, and service providers are overloaded with traffic. You can have a backup option using your smartphone's hotspot feature, but this will eat up your cellular plan's data limits. You need a more reliable solution to deal with the long-term effects of social distancing, as working and learning from home becomes the new normal.

UPGRADE YOUR INFRASTRUCTURE

Now is the perfect time to address your home networking infrastructure. If your Wi-Fi signal is weak in individual rooms, consider adding wired connections to your home office and the place where your children are attending classes, so the connection is more stable. Another option is to invest in a mesh Wi-Fi system that allows you to connect multiple wireless access points, blanketing your home in a more reliable connection. It might also be time to upgrade your router for greater bandwidth and security while upgrading your broadband plan to a faster speed.

A PROFESSIONAL INSTALLATION

The best way to ensure that your network can support your family working from home is to trust a professional home network installer to create a system that fits your unique needs seamlessly. They will have the technical expertise necessary to complete your project and are highly trained on all of the latest technology. Best of all, you will save time and avoid the frustration that comes from doing a DIY home network installation. Now that your livelihood and your children's education rely on your home network, it is best to go with the option that gives you peace of mind.
