Both large companies and small teams can struggle with the problem of slow internet. A small retail storefront has different needs than a corporate call center. But in other scenarios, if even just a few people in the office are uploading and downloading large files, that could put just as much stress on your network as one hundred internet users who only need to check email. That’s why it’s important to get a custom solution. It’s all a matter of having the right setup for how you work and your particular site.
What’s Making Your Internet Slow?
The speed of your internet is determined through multiple factors. When you choose your internet provider and plan, you’re essentially paying for both speed and bandwidth usage. The other piece of the puzzle, though, is what’s happening with your site’s infrastructure and the devices your team is using. Sometimes, it’s not that the internet service itself is slow, but that your own components aren’t able to keep up.
Your modem and router play a big role in how fast your internet connection will be. This is especially true for the WiFi speed of your router. If your hardware isn’t equipped to receive the high-speed internet you’re paying for, then it’s time for an upgrade. You might be blaming your internet service for issues that actually need to be addressed elsewhere.
Get a Robust Network Infrastructure
For some organizations and sites, the process of getting faster internet to their devices will be a relatively simple hardware upgrade. Adding an internet access point or a range extender to your setup might give your users the extra bit of connectivity they need to get their work done in an efficient way. However, as simple solutions, these options won’t be able to handle more complex scenarios.
There’s a possibility that your slow internet isn’t caused by either the internet provider or your WiFi components. So if an extenders and access points seem to fall short, the root problem may lie with your internet cabling. Devices that physically connect to your internet need to have the right tools. Typically, that means having a setup with the right Ethernet cables.
If your network cabling system is getting up in years, then resolving your slow internet might require a more robust infrastructure upgrade. The newer types of Ethernet cabling solutions available today can help give you faster speeds. But in some areas, that could mean going with fiber. Either way, working with a qualified telecommunications company for your cabling installation can help you create a faster and more streamlined layout for your needs.
