There are many benefits to living in a rural area, one negative, however, may be a poor internet connection. If you struggle to get service in all rooms in your home or find you are unable to stream television without it lagging, it can be extremely frustrating. So, how can you improve your internet connection in a rural area?
1. Upgrade to 4g home broadband
Upgrading to a 4g router is more affordable than you may think. Unlike other internet connections, 4g home internet uses a wireless 4g connection, rather than fixed lines, similar to how you can receive 4g reception on your phone. This allows residents in rural areas with poor fixed-line connections, to have super-fast internet.
2. Change your antenna
If you are still struggling with your WiFi connection, adding a fitted antenna to your router can help create a more stable connection. Fitted antennas are generally larger than standard ones and can help create better range and coverage. 4G4U can help you source and install a new antenna for you.
3. Don’t hard reset your router frequently
While you wait to upgrade your current router, it can be tempting to reset your router frequently. Simply restarting your router can help improve your internet connection but you should avoid a ‘hard’ reset which is actioned by a pushpin. A hard reset returns the router to default mode and causes it to forget all existing connections and log-in information, this may make getting back online an even longer, time-consuming process.
