Having high-speed internet at home has been a necessity for over a decade now, and the more recent advent of smartphones allows users to have internet with them wherever they are. These factors are only two of the benefits of going wireless.
However, if you need more convincing, these few reasons should be enough to change your mind.
1. Increased mobility
One big advantage of having a wireless network is the ability to always be online, regardless of where you are. There are no network cables to limit your distance, which means you can take your laptop, tablet or smartphone anywhere in the house - be it the couch or the bed, in front of the television or at the dining table while you grab a snack.
2. Ease of access
A wireless home network can give your house guests easy access to high-speed internet on their internet-capable devices without the need for a LAN cable port. Many businesses can also benefit from this easy access, as a Wi-Fi connection can greatly improve the foot traffic in an establishment, leading to more customers and more business. In fact, many places that lack a Wi-Fi connection may be passed over for similar establishments that offer a wireless internet connection.
3. Easier network expansion
Being able to expand your network, whether at home or your place of business can help cut costs. By removing the need to buy extra network routers/switches and the corresponding cables, a wireless network can help you save money. Additionally, creating permissions that apply to specific users of your network such as guests, allows you to control the security without worrying about the physical setup of the network.
