6 reasons why WiFi 6 is the best option for your home

wifi 6 Does your internet lag? Does it seem like every time you sit down to stream your favorite show, you’re stuck buffering? Do you find yourself disconnecting devices from your WiFi in hopes of getting a better performance? If this sounds like you, then it’s probably time to upgrade to WiFi 6!

WiFi 6 was designed with the needs of the modern household in mind, and to prove it, here are six reasons why WiFi 6 is the best option for your home. 

  • Fastest speed available

Sparing you the technical jargon associated with WiFi technology, WiFi 6 nearly doubles the capabilities and speed of WiFi 5.

  • Supports multiple devices

WiFi 5 was good, but WiFi 6 is better. Building on the technology of WiFi 5, WiFi 6 uses orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA), a fancy way of saying it allows your WiFi to work more efficiently with multiple devices with different bandwidth requirements, all running at once. This means everyone in your home can run their devices, listen to their music, and watch their own shows at the same time without having to worry about bogging down the internet. 

  • Designed with smart homes in mind

While we are talking about using multiple devices at once, as the popularity of smart homes increases, so does the use of smart devices. Whereas in the past, you may have only had to consider how much strain your gaming system, laptop, smartphone, and maybe your television was putting on your internet, now you need to take into consideration every smart lightbulb, smart lock, smart appliance, and any other smart device you may have. WiFi 6 was designed with that in mind. With WiFi 6, you can enjoy a smooth streaming experience without the worry of dimming lights or any other interruption to your smart devices. 

  • 4K/8K UHD streaming

From movies to television shows, more and more content is coming out in higher HD resolutions. In order to stream 4K or even 8K resolution video, you need a consistent high-speed connection. When you’re part of a household running multiple devices on your WiFi network, the network may already be strained. With the combination of ultra-fast processors, increased memory, and the increased number of radio streams, you can reliably stream not just one but multiple HD videos with your WiFi 6 without the worry of buffering. 

  • Improved battery life

Believe it or not, WiFi 6 can help extend the battery life on your mobile devices. Using a technology called Target Wake Time (TWT), WiFi 6 allows devices, like your smartphone, to determine when they normally wake up and begin sending and receiving data. This puts less strain on your device and can help extend the battery life of any battery-powered devices you have connected to your network. 

  • Get the most out of new products

From smartphones to laptops and tablets, new products coming out are already WiFi 6 compatible. Without a WiFi 6 router, you won’t be getting the most you can get out of your new devices.
