Have you ever been on a video call only to discover that your internet connection is causing issues and disrupting the flow?
Whenever this happens, we immediately become frustrated as we must ask people to repeat themselves. Then we begin to wonder of if this bad experience is damaging our brand. What about the loss of productivity! Wouldn’t it be great if we could all have peace of mind when it comes to the internet connection?
The good news is that you no longer must put up with a poor internet connection at home.
Use a cable – do not use WiFi
Most of us prefer the convenience of a WiFi but as home working becomes ubiquitous, we now find ourselves executing mission critical tasks online from home.
Wifi signal and strength can be distorted by many environmental factors and also the number of users connecting. So, ask your IT service provider for an ethernet cable if you can connect to your ISP router via a cable.
If you decide to evolve your home office, you can consider a wired home network whereby you can have multiple devices wired to a central switch and to the internet in a secure way.
Failing a cable use TP-Link PowerLine adapters
When it comes to the home office the modern professional is looking for convenience and simplicity. A new technology the Powerline Adapter is a good alternative to WiFi and long trailing cables for home office users.
Powerline Adapters are easy to install and provide better reliability when connecting to the home Internet router. Powerline adaptors eliminate the need for cabling installations making it a cost-effective short-term solution.
Get the best possible Internet subscription
With the advance of home working broadband providers have started to invest in their equipment (modems, routers) to improve home working experiences.
Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are increasing their range of subscription plans on a regular basis so make sure you are on a plan which gives you the highest quality and speed. Fibre is always fastest but shop around for the best ISP in your local area. Speak to your IT service provider who will help with your selection.
