Schools Are Online – Is Your Home Wi-Fi Ready to Handle The Bandwidth?
If you have a child in county middle school or high school, there’s a good chance they have been outfitted with a Google ChromeBook to use during the school year. That means over 65,000 young minds tapping into the interwebs.
New Devices Equal Less Bandwidth
Additionally, that’s over 65,000 additional devices being plugged into your home Wi-Fi network; but thankfully, not all at once! If you’re like most of us, your home Wi-Fi bandwidth is already being squeezed with streaming movies, “Game of Thrones” binging, online gaming, social media, and video watching. Hopefully Madison and Jake know that researching their history report trumps fantasy football scores.
Today’s classrooms are part virtual, so communicating with our children’s teachers through their blogs and email has become commonplace. Our children research topics online and engage in educational activities that help to enrich and foster creativity. Henrico and Chesterfield County’s innovative move to outfit students with ChromeBooks is now the norm of most districts in the the greater RVA areas and around the state.
Increase Your WiFi Coverage without Paying Monthly Fees
One of the biggest problems in any home is that the wireless routers supplied by our local internet providers have very limited range. This translates to dropped connections, low signals, dead spots, and a lot of frustration for many homeowners. Our electronic solutions specialists at Moseley Electronics can help by installing one or more additional WAP’s (“wireless access points”) which will increase your Wi-Fi coverage, allowing you to connect more devices, send more emails, research more art projects, and keep your kids connected to their schools; all while you’re still able to enjoy the latest Netflix addition.
Just a few benefits our Wi-Fi solutions can provide:
- Allows you to connect multiple devices to your Wi-Fi at once
- Provide a better solution for multimedia, gaming, and high bandwidth consuming applications
- Extra secure access points (no one can steal your connection)
- Additional prevention against security hacks (online identity theft)
- Extended signal reach – so you have a stronger Wi-Fi signal throughout your home and property (can even extend Wi-Fi to the outside of your property)
