Five ways BeBoost mesh WiFi can level up your broadband game

03 January 2024

Once a luxury, wireless internet technology has made significant strides over the last six decades. But in the last few years, it has made more rapid advancements than ever.

With options like 5G networks and satellite internet, it comes as no surprise that consumers today don’t know which product or service to adopt for the better. There’s the complex realm of add-ons to navigate too. How can you maximise your connectivity, without hiking unnecessary costs in the process? Which security features are truly worth the investment? 

Let’s cut through the jargon and buzzwords, to talk all-things mesh WiFi. Say goodbye to dead zones and broadband headaches, and explore the future of seamless connectivity with our BeBoost mesh solution…

What is mesh WiFI?

Poor coverage is one of the biggest WiFi woes plaguing households and businesses today. From walls and doors to furniture and more, physical obstructions can have a major impact on the way signals weave around your home or property. That’s where mesh comes in. 

Rather than a single router, mesh is an interconnected wireless networking system. Operating as a central device, it communicates with satellite nodes (or access points) placed around the house to create reliable WiFi signals. This setup eliminates dead zones, offering a seamless connection from any room.

Enhancing network performance and eliminating frustrating signal drops, it’s an ideal solution for larger homes or complex spaces. It’s simple to set up, convenient to use, and easy to scale up and down as required. So, no need to be a techie to get up and running.

How does mesh WiFi work?

Mesh technology operates on a simple yet powerful principle: collaboration. Each device in the mesh network acts as a node, working together to amplify the signal and distribute it evenly throughout your home or office. Your device automatically connects to the nearest node and, as you move, it seamlessly switches to the one with the strongest signal — ensuring a stable and strong connection, whether you’re streaming, gaming, video conferencing, or anything in between.

WiFi extender vs mesh — what is the difference?

You can add an extender to an existing WiFi network. Mesh systems, on the other hand, typically act as a complete replacement. Because the satellite nodes act as a unified network, and automatically allocate devices based on signal strength, they generally offer a faster and more efficient experience than an extender.
