When do you need a new Wi-Fi Router for your home?

If you’re having problems with your network, such as weak signal strength that causes buffering when you’re trying to watch videos, replacing your router with a newer, more powerful model might be an effective solution. Upgrading your router could give you several benefits:

  • Faster speeds
    Increased range
    More devices connected at once
    Versatile new features
  • If you are unsure about whether it’s time to upgrade, here are some factors to consider:

How old is your current router?
Several new technologies have emerged in the past 2 or 3 years that could give you better, faster performance. If your router is more than a few years old, it might be time to upgrade to take advantage of this new tech.

Did you buy your own router, or did you get one from your service provider as a part of your Internet package?
When you signed up for your Internet service plan, a technician likely came to your home to set it up for the first time. You were probably given both a modem and a router at that time.

The router you got from your service provider might be outdated or underpowered, so purchasing your own may be a better option than continuing to use the one that came with your Internet plan.

How many devices does your network support?
If you were asked to count the devices connected to your network, you’d probably think about your computers right away. What many people don’t realize, however, is that the connected devices don’t end there. In fact, the average household has 7 or more, and all of them are sharing the same network

Connected devices include smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles, smart TVs, streaming media players, home automation devices and more, and every family member probably has several of his or her own devices. With so many devices connected at once, your router is doing an incredible amount of heavy lifting.

What do you want your connected devices to do?
Some activities require more bandwidth than others. For example, if you plan on streaming movies in 4K resolution, you are going to use substantially more bandwidth than someone who is simply surfing the Internet. If you have one family member streaming Ultra HD movies in one room and another family member playing online games in another at the same time, you might need a high-performance router to prevent lag and buffering.
