Is Your Internet "Dropping?" Are You Having Buffering On Your SmartTV? In Many Cases, It's Not Your Internet Connection At All... Might Be Time To Upgrade Your Wi-Fi

These days, we are all relying on our Internet connections more than ever before. We are using it for more mission critical applications as well as more bandwidth intensive uses such as streaming video and other real-time video services like Zoom. We often get calls from customers complaining about "slow speeds," "drops," or "buffering," among other things. The first thing we do is check the Internet connection and in many cases, we find no issues. So what could it be? Up to 60% of our calls these days are Wi-Fi related and this may just be the case. The good news is we have some great solutions.
