April 21, 2020 | HTC If you’ve recently begun telecommuting as a result of Covid-19, you’ll need a dependable Internet connection to prevent lagging videoconferences, frozen Google docs, and other frustrating things that can happen while working from home. Many residents don’t know how much broadband it takes to handle work communications while also supporting kids streaming videos and participating in e-learning sessions. We’ll tell you how to get the most out of your Internet service so everyone in your family can work as efficiently as possible. How fast should my Internet service be? There’s nothing more annoying than missing something important during a meeting. Online conference services like Zoom, Skype, Google Hangouts will pause frequently if you don’t have enough download and upload speed to handle it. A frozen screen during your videoconference or a voice cutting in and out on an audio call means you don’t have the speed required for such services. What if I need more speed? With increased demands of working and learning from home, now is a great time to talk to HTC about our industry-leading Managed Wi-Fi. It’s the fastest Wi-Fi technology available and our professional installers will customize your service specifically for your work-at-home needs. The technicians in the HTC office will test your speeds remotely to verify all aspects of your install. After that, any problems you have will just require a call to our office. We’ll check your signal strength using cloud tools to determine the reason for the issue, and get you back up to the fastest speed possible in no time. Need the Very Best Wi-Fi Technology?
