Having a broadband Internet plan at home is good. However, this does not necessarily guarantee of a fast Internet connection there. You must also make sure that your Wi-Fi router is strategically located to optimize coverage.

That said, Globe At Home offers three easy and useful tips to make the most out of your Internet connection at the comforts of your home.

1. Keep your router away from obstruction

Did you know that structures like concrete walls, mirrors, doors, and other large obstacles can weaken your Wi-Fi signal? So in order to maintain an optimum connection, it’s best to keep the path between your router and your device as obstruction-free as possible by placing your router in a central location for an evenly-distributed signal. The farther your devices are from the router, the weaker the connection.

It is also best to place your router in an open space, preferably on an elevated platform and away from bodies of water like an aquarium or water containers. For a better Internet experience, you can stay close to your router while you browse or stream.

2. Connect only the devices you’re using

The more devices connected to your Wi-Fi, the more it can slow down your Internet speed as each takes up a portion of your total bandwidth. Only connect device/s that are being used to ensure a stable connection.

3. Wi-Fi extenders help improve your Wi-Fi signal coverage!

The bigger the home, the bigger ground your network provider needs to cover. That said, to ensure your house if fully-covered, Globe at Home’s special tech team also offers Airties Wi-Fi Mesh, which extends the Wi-Fi connectivity range to eliminate dead spots around the house and making sure that the entirety of your house is fully-covered.

Globe customers may approach any member of the Globe Tech Squad to avail Airties Wi-Fi Mesh via two payment options: (1) upfront payment of PhP 3,600, or (2) charged to bill at PhP 150/month for 24 months added on to your Globe At Home plan.

Make the most out of your connection with Globe At Home’s Plan 1299 and up, which offers fast and reliable Internet connection and speeds of up to 5Mbps and 300GB worth of data per month, plus a free 100GB allocation for YouTube. Visit the Globe at Home website to know more about their products.
