Slow Internet? It Could Be Time to Upgrade
A networking installation from Echo Workshop will prepare your household for high internet use in the fall.
With today's ubiquitous use of technology, household members need to have access to reliable and fast internet, with essentially no downtime. Internet use has become as critical to everyday household living as other essential utilities such as electricity, water usage, and temperature control. If someone is already experiencing slow internet speeds during the current summer season, it's possible they could have an even bigger problem this fall. Here's why you need the right networking installation from Echo Workshop.
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.
Between remote work, educational activities, leisure time online pursuits, and smart home features that require internet access, it's possible that more than a few households could run into trouble this fall if they don't ramp up their internet access in advance.
Upgrading Your Networking Installation with Echo Workshop
Here at Echo Workshop, we understand that today's 21st-century households need and want it all in terms of internet access. Busy families require no less than fast internet access from home, 24 hours a day/7 days a week. Our professional team can analyze your entire household's internet requirements, then deliver a professional solution that will work quietly and effectively in the background — delivering fast internet access to every person and every IoT device within the home.
Our internet professionals will analyze all the internet use areas throughout the home, including remote work offices, student areas, smart home devices, and (indoor and outdoor) leisure time areas. If weak WiFi signals are detected in certain regions, we can add wired connections so households members will have access to a stable connection, no matter if they're working in the home or watching TV from the patio.
Another option to consider is implementing a mesh WiFi system. This type of system allows for the connection of multiple wireless access points, essentially blanketing the entire home (and outdoor areas if needed) with a more reliable connection.
Last but not least, our team will analyze the household's current router to determine if it adheres to the latest industry security standards and whether upgrading it to a next-level bandwidth is in order.
Prepare in Advance
Upgrading now means avoiding getting bogged down when internet use increases this fall. Also, it's important to ensure that your internet connection is truly secure. Get prepared for the future by contacting Echo Workshop today, to meet with one of our networking installation professionals.
