Want to know more about WiFi?
The first step to having reliable home WiFi is to first have a stable connection to your home. Aussie Broadband provides an award-winning service and network, with 100% Australian-based customer service to help out if you ever do have any issues.
Secondly, it’s important to understand what WiFi is. WiFi connects wireless devices to the internet using radio waves transmitted by the router. All routers operate on the 2.4GHz frequency, and there are also dual-band routers boasting an additional 5.0GHz frequency.
The 2.4GHz channel has a larger area coverage but has more opportunities for interference and slower speeds. 2.4GHz frequency is often disrupted by other appliances and even your neighbour’s WiFi. Appliances that can interfere are microwaves, baby monitors, radio-controlled cars, cordless phone handsets & bases, and security cameras because they all operate on the 2.4GHz frequency.
The 5.0GHz channel has slightly less range but deals with significantly less interference as well as speeds being higher. If range is an issue, there are ways to counteract this, such as WiFi range extenders which allow for the WiFi signals to reach the far bedroom or multiple floors.
But how can you get the most out of your new service?
To get the most out of your new nbn™ service we recommend high quality hardware. The basis to stable WiFi is a stable nbn™ service, which we provide, but to make the most out of your service, you require hardware which will meet your unique range of needs. Do you have a larger home (or a home with multiple floors)? Do you have brick walls? A lot of electronic appliances that work on the 2.4GHz frequency? These will all effect what sort of hardware would best suit your home.
We have a range of hardware options, from our standard dual-band nbn™ modem/router the Netcomm NF18MESH, to our Google Nest Wifi (Available with additional WiFi points to increase your WiFi range). You can read more about our hardware options below.
