The world is currently caught up in a whirlwind of uncertainty and confusion - the Coronavirus is spreading further and further, whilst governments scramble in an attempt to contain the spread and reduce the devastating impacts that it could have.
From a work perspective, many are now being asked to work from their homes if possible to help reduce the possibility of spreading the virus through contact. With this sudden demand for the ability to work from home now putting more pressure than ever on our home broadband, Zen Internet takes a look at mesh broadband and the impact that it can have on the service that you receive within your home.
What Is Mesh Broadband?
Mesh broadband is an alternative method of spreading wireless internet connectivity around your home. With mesh networks, you’ll be utilising multiple routers across the household to boost signal strength and provide reliable, high-quality connectivity throughout your home. If you’re going to be working from home for the foreseeable future, as most of us are expected to be, it’s vital that you have the right setup in place to ensure that you can complete your work to the same standard that you would if you were in the office - if you can’t, it’s going to be hugely detrimental to business.
How Does It Improve Your Service?
For most people, the bulk of our tasks are now performed digitally through the use of online platforms such as Google Docs, WorkDay, Wordpress, Shopify, and PayPal all being used by the vast majority of businesses across the world. As long as you have the correct logins and a broadband package that is capable of handling the demand you’ll be putting onto it, you should be able to keep things running as smoothly as possible in this period of genuinely worrying uncertainty.
Mesh broadband is ideal for households where multiple users are being encouraged to work from home, as the network allows for stronger connections in every room. This should cut out any early morning arguments for the rooms where the internet performs best - everyone can have their own space to work in, helping everyone to cope with the new process a little bit more easily.
Who Can Utilise Mesh Broadband?
The best bit of Mesh broadband networks is that almost everyone is able to utilise it; it’s simply a new option that replaces boosters and your original router and instead offers various access points to your home broadband so that you experience higher quality service in every area of your home. Before looking at mesh networks, it may also be worth checking out your current broadband package, as it may not be your signal strength that’s letting you down, but rather your package allowances that are slowing you down. If that’s the case, you can try some of the old tricks to try and boost your broadband, but the chances are that you might need a more comprehensive package now that you’re expecting to be using your home internet a little more frequently over the next couple of weeks and possibly even months.
