What speeds does Fibrus offer?
Fibrus Business Broadband products offer asymmetric bandwidth with download speeds up to 900Mb/s and upload speeds up to 300Mb/s. The best speed performance will be achieved by connecting to your Fibrus hub with an ethernet cable. This is the most reliable method of connecting to the internet as it removes the possibility of WI-FI interference.
What factors can impact my broadband speed?
Full Fibre speeds can sometimes be affected by:
How your broadband is set up. Where your router is placed in your premises can affect your broadband speed. See our tips below to improve the location of your hub.
How you use your broadband. Broadband speed is shared with every device connected to your Hub. So, if four devices are using the internet at the same time, they will each get roughly a quarter of the available speed. Streaming (for example video conferencing) and sharing large files uses more of your bandwidth.
Your premises. If your premises covers a large space your Wi-Fi signal may be struggling to reach all areas. For these locations, we recommend upgrading to our Business Max bundle that includes 4 eero routers.
Your devices. If you have got an old computer, laptop, mobile phone, or other devices more than three years old, they might be slower because they’re having trouble running the latest software and programs.
How can I improve my Wi-Fi signal?
Position your eero router near to where you use the internet most, the further you are from the router, the weaker your signal will be.
If you can eliminate even one wall between your device and the router, you can drastically improve performance.
- Keep your router on show, avoid hiding it in a cupboard or on the ground where the WI-FI signal will be obstructed.
- Keep your router away from walls and surrounded by open air to avoid it overheating.
- Position your router in the centre of your premises to reduce the number of walls slowing down the signal.
- Elevate your router by mounting it on a wall or on a top shelf to get a better signal.
- Disconnect devices you are not using.
If your premises covers a large space, your Wi-Fi signal may be struggling to reach all areas of your premises. You may want to discuss options to improve your Wi-Fi coverage with one of our Business Sales Advisors on 028 9099 4060 or [email protected].
