Easy tips to improve your Wi-Fi signal

Disconnect any unused devices

Disconnect any unused devices

Every device connected to your WiFi shares the same signal , which means the more devices you have connected, the slower your speeds are going to be. Try to: 

  • Disconnect or switch off any devices you aren't using to speed up your network
  • Keep your network password-protected to stop unknown devices form connecting
  • Remember that older devices might not achieve the same speeds as new devices.
Move your router

For the strongest possible WiFi signal, your hub should be located somewhere with minimal interference. Try to:

  • Place your hub in a central location in the home
  • Avoid placing near other electrical devices to reduce interference
  • Keep away from physical barriers like walls and mirrors - these can have a negative impact on WiFi speeds.
