Is Your Home Wi-Fi Ready for Back to School?


Make Sure Everything and Everyone Stays Connected with Whole Home Wi-Fi

What is "whole-home Wi-Fi?" Did we decide to coin yet another term? Yes and no. Whole-home Wi-Fi simply means Wi-Fi that keeps you connected no matter where you roam with your devices at home. Most people’s networks are supposed to cover their entire house, but in reality, the wireless signal tends to be strong in some rooms – or even only parts of rooms – and spottier in others.

What's the downside? With today's ever-increasing connectivity needs, weak wireless signals can mean devices that won't work correctly and slow performance for work and school tasks. Those fun devices like Amazon Echo speakers, connected kitchen appliances, smart TVs, and more compete for wireless bandwidth with more serious endeavors like working and learning from home.

Keep reading below to see how to get your Incline Village, NV home ready for school, work, and everything else in your connected life this fall.
