New Wi-Fi Routers With 4 Times More Speed

We talk about the frustrations of low speeds on our computers all the time and it could be because of the demands on the networks that can only accommodate so much at a time. It’s like traffic during rush hour. You can only fit so many vehicles on a road at one time before you start to get a back up. So what can you do about it? For heavy traffic you can add extra lanes and that’s what wireless technology is doing – basically adding more lanes.

Some new wi-fi routers are being introduced that are four times faster than the ones available now. And how do they do that? They’re going to a radio frequency bandwith that isn’t so crowded. Right now your wi-fi router shares bandwith with TV remotes, smartphones, tablets, cordless phones, even refrigerators and washing machines share some of the same bandwidth.

And when you consider the number of home wi-fi routers has doubled in the past five years and all the information they have to process – especially videos – that’s why they bog down so often. And if you live in an apartment building or work in an office with a lot of computers around – the information can flow like molasses sometimes.

Those new routers are available now, but pricey. Expect to pay about $150, but by next year the price will be coming down.
