7 Signs It’s Time to Upgrade Your Business Wifi

It’s not uncommon for small business owners to put off upgrading their wireless network to save money. But, with so many businesses now relying on the internet to do business, having reliable, high-performance business wifi isn’t just nice to have – it’s essential.

Here are seven signs that your business needs new technology.

1. Your Internet Connection Is Slow

Most of the time, businesses are dissatisfied with their ISP because they’re simply not getting enough speed. If your business cannot stream videos or do anything that requires high speed, it might be time for an upgrade.

2. Your Wireless Signal Doesn’t Reach Everywhere in Your Building

Whether you need better coverage in the warehouse or the employees at one remote desk aren’t getting a strong connection, you need to upgrade if your wireless signal can’t reach every corner of your business.

3. You Find Yourself Calling Customer Service Frequently

If you’re calling customer service each week because your business wifi is down, it might be time to invest in technology that will prevent this from happening.

4. You’ve Reached Your Data Cap

If you can’t browse the web, send emails, or download documents without worrying about going over your data plan, consider upgrading to a business-class service with more bandwidth and won’t charge additional fees for usage.

5. The Equipment Looks Old and Outdated

Old routers, modems, and switches not only take up space but also slow down work. They’re also an eyesore that can detract from the decor of your office. If it’s time to upgrade your equipment, here are some things you need to know.

6. You’re Experiencing Frequent Outages

Network downtime is more than just inconvenient — it’s costly. A small business that lacks a reliable network might experience loss in productivity, customers, and sales.

7. You Can’t Accommodate More Devices

If you’re trying to do too much with your current business wifi, it might be time for a more robust system that can support more devices. An upgrade might be a good idea if you’re trying to add employees or office equipment that requires a faster connection.

According to an AV System survey, wifi access is so vital to over half of respondents that they would be prepared to do, share, or trade anything for it. This includes giving permission to one’s personal email (7%), sharing personal information (8%), and watching a 3-minute commercial (34%). It is important to ensure that the wireless internet in a business place is fast and reliable.
