What is the major change which this Covid – 19 has brought in to our work, education and business? Yes, the heavy dependence on internet for our day today activities. People started to use Internet or Internet based services to get their jobs done without the danger of getting affected with the pandemic.
Now, internet is the most essential facility which is required for everyone. Earlier, it was mainly used by business establishments and corporate customers. During this pandemic period, where most of the business establishments are extending Work From Home (WFH) facilities to their workers a stable internet connectivity is essential in each home. Now, educational institutions are also conducting online classes to their students all over the world which also necessitates the requirement of a stable internet connectivity at your home.
When it comes to choose an internet connectivity at your home, there are two options in front of you which are :- 1) Wired Broadband or 2) Wireless Broadband. Now, it is the time to deicide whether we need to get a wired or wireless connectivity at your home.
What is a Wired Broadband Internet Connection?
If you are opting for a Wired connection, your internet service provider (ISP) will provide wired connectivity from his office / telephone exchange to your home where it will be terminated in a home router. From there, the signal does one of two things.
Option 1 : The first option is that a signal becomes a wired connection via an ethernet cable from the router to a device like a desktop computer or a television receiver. With a direct connection, there is no slowing of speed; the speed you have signed up for should be the speed you receive on your end device. If you are using more than one devices simultaneously, the total bandwidth will get shared among these devices.
Option 2 : The second option is the signal is transmitted through the air to the end devices you have in your home that have the ability to receive Wi-Fi signals. Here, we need to check the capacity and capability of Wi-Fi router and end devices. A much better performance is observed in dual band Wi-Fi routers as compared to single band routers.
