Slow Broadband? Are your Christmas Fairy Lights at Fault?

People can check whether their in-home Wi-Fi is giving them the best service by using a simple, powerful app launched by Ofcom recently.

The Ofcom Wi-Fi Checker, which runs on smartphones and tablets, allows consumers and businesses to discover the quality of their wireless internet signal wherever they live or work – as well as offering practical steps to help people get the best from their connection.

Wireless broadband may not be working as well as it could in nearly six million UK homes and offices, according to Ofcom research published today. This is often caused by the Wi-Fi set-up in the house / office slowing down broadband.

It could be down to something as simple as interference from other electronic devices, such as a microwave oven, baby monitor, a lamp – or even Christmas fairy lights.

The app tests the Wi-Fi set-up and, if it finds a problem, will provide some troubleshooting tips to help improve broadband. It is free to download now from Apple’s App Store and Google Play.

The App is available for both Android and iOS (Apple) smartphones and tablets.

If you’re having issues with your Broadband speeds, Please don’t hesitate to contact a member of the team who will be happy to assist.
