How Routers Affect Your Internet Speeds

In our quest to bring you smooth, stable, high-speed internet, we had to pinpoint a secure and speedy WiFi router solution. With more families simultaneously using the internet at home, we wanted to ensure that our high-speed internet wasn't getting high-jacked by low-quality WiFi routers.

The Router/Internet Relationship

Your WiFi router is responsible for connecting all of your smart devices to your Blue Ridge high-speed internet. Your router works with your modem, directing data signals to each smart device on your network. Like a traffic cop, it is responsible for managing the flow of network traffic through your entire home and ultimately how you experience the internet each and every day.

If your router can't support the number of smart devices on your WiFi network or doesn't have the technology to cover every corner of your home, you will experience slow speeds and dead spots.

Routers Affect Internet Speed

Old and outdated routers may not be able to keep up or support the speeds you subscribe to. You could end up paying for higher speeds than you are getting because of a sub-par router.

Router placement can also affect your internet speeds and it is important that the router is unobstructed and in close proximity to the devices on the network. Having multiple routers can resolve this issue.

Our Solution - Blue Ridge HomeFi

Our solution to ensure that you are getting the best out of your Blue Ridge high-speed internet connection is by offering HomeFi. A whole-home WiFi system with WiFi 6E and TrueMesh Technology. Powered by eero, TrueMesh is one of the latest developments in WiFi technology.
