10 Reasons for Your Poor Wi-Fi Connection [INFOGRAPHIC]

In this modern, digital age, Wi-Fi is the sustenance upon which we thrive; without it, our will to carry on living in this world – indeed, our very lifeblood –  will be reduced to nothing. Without Wi-Fi, our very existence disappears from the world, our bodies immediately reverting to a natural state of the universe…individual atoms blanketing a planet once filled with intelligent beings – hard drives replete with unmentionables would remain the only physical reminders of humanity’s existence. Okay, well, maybe Wi-Fi isn’t that crucial, but a poor Wi-Fi connection can certainly impact the ways through which we navigate our world. For businesses, especially, poor Wi-Fi connection can ultimately affect the overall bottom-line; with poor Wi-Fi connection comes a lack of functionality and productivity. The IT global recruiting and staffing company, Randstand Technologies, recently looked at the various factors that can contribute to poor Wi-Fi connection in the workplace and ways to ameliorate them.

While there’s a wide belief that improvements to Wi-Fi connectivity can only be impacted by upgrades to the technologies utilized, it takes more than upgraded routers and the like to improve poor Wi-Fi connection. Sometimes, great Wi-Fi can only be created by ensuring that companies work with IT specialists that can execute the best deployment of their office network. Companies also need to understand that Wi-Fi connectivity can actually be significantly affected by their environments – that things like bodies of water  (or even water in the pipes) and trees can negatively impact the quality of Wi-Fi, or that things like stainless steel walls can improve Wi-Fi signals.

Especially for companies hoping to set up a new office, such considerations to the environment are important; executing a network deployment strategy around the negative factors can optimize the perform of your new Wi-Fi connection, which will ultimately contribute to a thriving business. And even just for personal reference, the reasons listed below are things that everyone should keep an eye out for. Take a look at the the 10 reasons for your poor Wi-Fi connection, below:
