Where would we be without the internet? We can find out essentially everything we need to know online and the internet helps greatly at the home and in the office, in our everyday lives and our career.
In the fast-paced world we live in, it can be very frustrating and even detrimental to experience poor internet speeds, especially at work.
Fortunately, there’s little things we all can do at work to ensure all employees can utilise and enjoy better internet speeds.
Want to know how to enjoy better internet speeds in the office?
Read more from the Perth commercial electricians at Wacomm to find out.
Why you should optimise internet speeds in the office
Productivity is essentially measured by how time available in a working day is used to produce appropriate and meaningful work.
Ensuring an efficient and optimised electrical network in your business shouldn’t be underestimated.
Why?Because you can hazard a guess at the number of thumb twiddling and distractions that present themselves as staff (im)patiently await loading servers and file downloads.
Faster internet speeds undeniably contribute to:
- Enhanced productivity
- Faster completion of tasks and greater quality of work
- Less monitors thrown through windows out of sheer frustration (one can only hope!).
Let’s take a look at the ways in which business owners and their employees can access better internet speeds at work.
How to get better internet speeds in the office
These 5 tips below might be the answers you need for better internet speeds:
Tip 1: Reboot and restart
Accessing better internet speeds may be as simple as rebooting your router and modem. Yes, the old ‘switching it off and on’ again strategy does work in a number of places. Not making your internet speeds any faster? Don’t worry, there’s other ways.
Tip 2: Assess your network
Take a look at all the electronic devices in your network. Do you really need all of them? Getting rid of what’s not in use can free up a lot of valuable network space. Also, this ties in well with checking if your current commercial business plan is meeting the demands of the workload.
Tip 3: Choose wired over wireless
Wired connections should be favoured, unless Wi-Fi is a definite necessity. Wire your computers directly to the network to allow staff to access faster, stable internet connections throughout the duration of the working day.
Tip 4: Clear your browser cache on your office devices on a regular basis and also make sure your browsers are up to date. Keep plugins to a minimum as well.
Tip 5: Look at your internet providers
