What speeds should I expect on Wi-Fi?

Wi-Fi is great but the speed it provides can vary greatly depending on your building, your device and how far you are away from the router.

Wi-Fi signal is affected by distance, walls, doors and even things like mirrors, using microwave ovens and metal objects like fridges can make a huge difference. We can advise and help with Wi-Fi and where it is best to place your router and any mesh devices but, well, as you can see its complicated!

The good news is that most devices in typical homes only need a few Mbp/s to work absolutely fine.

We guarantee the speed and reliability to your router. Wi-Fi speed is always lower than being connected by a cable into your router, so if speed is really important to you, use a cable if you can.
