Even Your Broadband Is Slowing Down Over The Festive Period!
December 15th, 2015 11:01 am     A+ | a-
Reports from Ofcom, a British communications regulatory body, claim that the fairy lights on Christmas trees and adorning your home over the festive period could be the cause of your broadband speed slowing down this Christmas. Ofcom says wireless Internet networks often suffer ‘interference’ from electronic goods including baby monitors and microwave ovens – and even festive fairy lights. As a result connections may become lower and less efficient.
 
To ease the frustration Ofcom have conveniently released an app for both Apple and Android smart phones so you can check your home broadband network for interrupted signal between your wireless router and devices like phones and tablets. Ofcom says that up to six millions homes and offices could improve their broadband connection. They claim networks are often not set-up correctly, and can suffer interference from electronic devices which may emit radio waves which can affect Wi-Fi transmission.

You are advised to keep your router as far away as possible from other electronic devices. The free Wi-Fi Checker app allows people to test the quality of their Internet signal and suggests ways to enhance it. If you don’t fancy downloading the app then try these handy tips they suggest might work.
 
Keep your router away from electrical devices: lamps, dimmer switches, music systems, baby monitors or computer screens and speakers, fairy lights, TVs and AC power cords as these can all cause interference to your routers and impact on the speed.
 
Ideally routers should be kept centrally within the home and placed on a table or shelf rather than on the floor. If a central location doesn’t work for you try moving your router to a different part of your home. Walls and even furniture could act as an obstacle to the Wi-Fi radio frequencies.
 
Or you could try using an Ethernet cable: Although obviously this prevents a wireless connection, an Ethernet cable is a computer networking cable which provides a faster, more reliable connection.
 
Merry Christmas ;)
