Wired VS WiFi

What is the difference between a Wired and WiFi connection on my Fibre broadband?

The speed you experience on your fibre broadband connection is dependent on whether you are on a wired or WiFi connection. 

  • Wired connections are fast and consistent, suitable for bandwidth-intensive activities (gaming, video streaming, file sharing, etc)
  • WiFi connectivity is generally lower than Wired connections as it has limitations due to several environmental factors. Your WiFi coverage may be affected by your home layout, wall structure and the position of the wireless router. Interferences can also come from other household devices or your neighbours' WiFi signals, especially within dense residences. Hence, we do recommend that you use Wired connection (LAN cable) for optimal and a more stable speed.
