Want Faster Wifi? There’s a Really Simple Way To Get It

Wifi signals are made of radio waves that have a shorter wavelength than AM radio and cell phones but longer than satellite tv. How can I make my wifi faster? There are several things you can do to make your wifi faster without paying more, and they mostly have to do with the placement of your wifi router.

It turns out, getting faster home Internet is really easy, and you’re probably doing it wrong.

According to this video from Vox, there are five extremely simple ways to increase your wifi signal at home (hint: naming your network “3rdFloorAssHoleSTFUonYourBalcony” is not one of them).

Basically, it all boils down to moving your router to a better spot.

Yes, you’ve probably been suspecting this was the case for a long time, but were too lazy to actually find out if walls affected the signal (hint: they do). So do other electronics such as TVs, microwaves, etc.

Take two minutes, watch the video, and maybe save yourself hours of screaming at your laptop and cursing your service provider.
