Installing a Wi-Fi at home is now the norm for many households, and the time when the Internet was only accessible via cable is now gone. As the cost of the necessary hardware becomes cheaper, when combined with Internet Service Providers (ISP) offering affordable broadband packages, it is only a matter of time before more people start to get their fiber Internet connection at home. The experts at Converge ICT add the three major benefits of using a wireless fiber Internet connection:
Several users can use it at one time.
During the days of dial-up and high-speed Internet, the line came through a modem connected to a computer via cable. This meant only one person could surf the Internet at a time. Wi-Fi is wireless and uses waves so a certain number of people can access the Web on their mobile devices.
Create a Digital Home.
The rise of Wi-Fi has made the “Internet of all Things” possible. You now have digital devices controlled through the Internet. Smart TVs connect to the Internet so you can watch Youtube or Netflix on your TV. Some use the Internet to control virtual assistants like Siri. Amazon’s highly successful Echo speaker searches the Internet for your favorite music and streams it straight into your home. What connects all these different devices? Your home Wi-Fi network.
You can surf anywhere.
Using wireless technology means you don’t need a cable to surf the Internet. It also means that you don’t need to be rooted in one place. As long as you are in the coverage radius of the Wi-Fi, or carry a portable Wi-Fir modem, you can surf from anywhere at home – the bed, living room, kitchen, dining room, and even on a hammock in the garden.
Having a Wi-Fi connection at home is more than just about accessing the Internet. There are many possibilities that wireless fiber optics and digital technology can bring to a home, so explore the advantages and disadvantages and contact an ISP provider that can help you.
