Whole-home Wi-Fi is getting wi-fi coverage throughout the home, where you need it and at desired internet speeds. But ISPs (Internet Service Providers) complicate and confuse wi-fi with internet speed. You don’t have to upgrade to faster speeds to get the wi-fi you need. Properly configured Whole-home Wi-Fi not only saves customers money, but reliably improves wi-fi coverage throughout the entire home.
The #1 complaint about Internet
Slow internet speeds (and resulting buffering) typically result from a number of factors in the house. Distance between device and router, signal interference, and poor signal strength are just a few. But, the solution recommended by the ISP – pay more for more speed and rent a faster gateway does nothing to solve these problems. In fact, most ISPs make it nearly impossible to fix the actual problem the right way.
Trust the Whole-home Wi-Fi experts to do it for you. StreamWise Solutions evaluates your internet and wi-fi needs first. We then help identify the best and most cost-effective ISP and Internet for your area (even if it’s with the same provider). In just a few hours, we can design and install a Whole-home Wi-Fi solution that you own – typically eliminating equipment rentals and equipment contracts. The best part, you get optimal wi-fi performance in every corner of your house, PLUS lower monthly cost of internet service forever.
Whole-home Wi-Fi using a Mesh Network
Whole-home Wi-Fi is ill-achieved by using “extenders” or upgrading the gateway or modem. The optimal and most cost-effective way to ensure Whole-home Wi-Fi is to install and properly-configure a mesh network. We typically install mesh network systems from TP Link Deco but there are other options.
What is a mesh network
A mesh network is a group of devices that act as a single Wi-Fi network. Thus, there are multiple sources (or points) of Wi-Fi around the house instead of just a single source (aka the gateway or router). The Wi-Fi Points actually communicate with each other in real time to make sure your devices (computer, tablet, phone, etc.) are always connected to the best possible point. For example, you could stream your favorite show or movie on your tablet and walk without interruption from the living room to the upstairs laundry room and then down to the basement. As you move around your home, to the garage or even backyard, the points always connect your device to the best and fastest Wi-Fi Point.
Whole-home Wi-Fi from StreamWise Solutions
For more than 11 years, we have helped thousands of Colorado homeowners and business make the switch to Whole-home Wi-Fi. “Upgrading” the home network actually saves money because it avoids overpaying for excessive internet speed and reduces or eliminates equipment rental fees. Plus, you get the added benefit of regained control over your network and attached devices. Customers large and small also benefit from speed improvements throughout the home because we optimize the network to fit your needs. From Zoom calls to 4K gaming, wireless security cameras and wi-fi enabled BBQ smokers, you get the reliable wi-fi you want.
- Get Faster Internet Speed. Modems and mesh network devices are often superior to the equipment provided by the ISP. And, this helps you avoid those ISPs where they reserve some of your speed or bandwidth for other customers (aka “throttling”) or leasing your bandwidth to passers-by.
- No more dead zones. Interconnected mesh network points throughout the house gives you high-speed coverage when and where you need it, even as far as the guest house, detached garage or backyard.
- Improved security. Regain control of your home network. Monitor and control connected devices. Create a separate and secure guest network. Install and manage your own firewall. Add and remove devices with a simple, single click.
- No contracts or hidden fees. Eliminate long-term contracts for equipment rentals that are burdened with installation fees, early-termination fees, and annual price increases.
Distinguish Internet from Wi-Fi
The terms “Broadband,” “Internet” and “Wi-Fi” have been used synonymously, but that is incorrect. They are distinctly different. To remove the confusion, the Internet or World Wide Web is a global network of information “sites.” Access to the “Internet” is provided by a “Broadband” connection provided by an ISP (Internet Service Provider) via a modem or gateway. A “Wi-Fi” signal (Wi-Fi is short for Wireless Ethernet) in a home or business connects (hopefully securely) a device to the modem or gateway. Thus, the connection from a device (computer, tablet, phone, streaming media player, wireless security camera, etc.) to the Internet is complete.
