With most ISP’s the router within the modem will have a certain range for Wi-Fi coverage. Normally anywhere between (1,200-1,400 sq. ft) So what if your home is larger than the square footage your router covers? There are numerous products on the market that can help you with whole home Wi-Fi but overall, we recommend a Mesh Network.
Mesh Networks allow for flawless whole home coverage. So, for example, if you have a 7,000 sq. ft home and you are walking from your attic to your basement you won’t lose service, it will pick up seamlessly and transition to the different devices that are placed around your home. Gone are the days of losing your Wi-Fi connection within your own home.
These systems also allow for automatic upgrades, bug fixes, performance improvements and new features. They differ from Wi-Fi Extenders as they do not hinder your speed as much. You may have a 1-4mbps decrease in overall speed compared to cutting your speed in half with an extender.
Overall Mesh Networks are the answer if you want excellent whole home Wi-Fi coverage. The products that we recommend are the Eero and Google Nest devices. These are overall amazing products when it comes to quality, speed reduction and cost. If you are interested in seeing how a device like this would work for your home. Feel free to contact us today!
