Quick fixes for your home broadband
We’ve come to expect home broadband that just works and for most of us, most of the time, it does!

But even if you think you have great internet at home, there are still things you can do to make sure you’re getting the very best service possible.

Check where you put your router
Make sure your router is in a central location, away from other electronics that could interfere with the signal. In order to ensure a strong and even signal throughout, avoid obstructions. It's also a good idea to put it on a higher shelf or table to improve its range.

Update your router
Ensure your router is using the latest firmware or software updates as outdated equipment can limit your internet speed. Router manufacturers often release updates to improve performance and fix bugs. Check your router's manual for instructions on how to do it.

Invest in a Wi-Fi extender or mesh network
If your Wi-Fi signal is weak in certain areas of your home, consider investing in a Wi-Fi extender or mesh network to improve coverage.

Limit the number of devices connected
The more devices that are connected to your Wi-Fi network, the slower your internet might be. So when you need a faster connection, try limiting the number of devices connected to improve performance.

Check for viruses
Malicious software can eat up your bandwidth and slow down your upload speed. Regularly scan your computer for viruses and malware to keep your connection in top shape.

Update your device
Is your laptop so old that it simply can’t support 900Mpbs? Perhaps it’s time to update your hardware.

Upgrade your internet
If you're experiencing consistently slow internet speeds, consider upgrading your internet plan to a faster speed or full fibre to the premises (FTTP).
