Is Wi-Fi Performance Holding your Business Back?

Lorna Bailey Blog

Having a Wi-Fi system that can work to the highest performance is extremely crucial to the smooth running of your business.

If you have a Wi-Fi system that is not fit to be used in a business environment, this can cause a lack of productivity and efficiency.

In this article, we will discuss what Wi-Fi is and how having a slow system with poor speeds can have a negative effect on your business.

What is Wi-Fi?

So chances are, you’ve heard of Wi-Fi and have used it before. But how does it work?

Wi-Fi works by using radio waves to wirelessly send data to and from a device (such as a laptop, tablet or mobile phone) to a router that is connected to the internet.

You can see how this works in the image below:

Now, what causes problems with your Wi-Fi performance?

Commonly, most Wi-Fi problems are caused by:

  • Your router being too far away
  • The power of the signal given out by your router
  • Things getting in the way (believe it or not even the walls in your building can provide a huge barrier to the super strong Wi-Fi you need).

You can see in the image below just how these things can get in the way:

How Does This Affect your Business?

Having a Wi-Fi system with poor or slow performance can cause your business many troubles.

Firstly, having slow Wi-Fi will dramatically affect your productivity levels.

In order to have the speeds you need to successfully operate a business, you will need a business-grade Wi-Fi system. A standard router that you often see in the home just won’t cut it.

A standard Wi-Fi router can easily become overloaded with all the different devices you use in your business. This will also have a direct impact on other devices such as printers and scanners.

When too many devices try to connect at the same time, the speeds you receive slow down. Meaning your employee's work will be compromised.

Which leads us on to problem number two. If you’re experiencing lower levels of productivity, your business will not be working at maximum efficiency.

If you’re not working at maximum efficiency, you won’t be making maximum revenue.

How can you Improve your Wi-Fi Performance?

If your business is struggling from any of the following issues:

  • Wi-Fi stops working in certain areas of your business
  • Wi-Fi can be tidiotediouslyusly slow at times

It’s time you updated and improved your set-up.
