Cables or Wi-Fi?

Choosing between Wi-Fi and cabled connections in your home or business can be a difficult decision for many Herotel Fibre or Wireless clients. While both options have their advantages, it ultimately comes down to personal preference and individual needs.

Wi-Fi is undoubtedly the more convenient option, allowing you to connect to the internet from anywhere in your home without the need for cables. With Herotel’s free-to-use Wi-Fi router, you can connect multiple devices simultaneously and easily move around your home without worrying about tangled cables. However, Wi-Fi signals can be disrupted by other devices operating on the same frequency or by obstacles such as walls and doors. This can result in slower speeds and connectivity issues, especially if you have many devices connected to the network simultaneously.

Cabled connections, on the other hand, require Ethernet cables to connect your devices to your router. While they may not be as convenient as Wi-Fi connections, they are often faster and more reliable, especially if you have many devices connected to your network simultaneously. However, cabled connections require additional installation and can be time-consuming and expensive to set up.

When deciding which option to choose, it’s important to consider your individual needs and preferences. If you prioritize convenience and mobility, Wi-Fi may be the best option for you. On the other hand, if you need the highest possible speeds and stability, a cabled connection may be the better choice.

In most cases, it’s possible to use both Wi-Fi and cabled connections in your home. For example, you may use Wi-Fi for your mobile devices and cabled connections for your desktop computers, gaming consoles, and smart TVs. This can provide you with the best of both worlds, allowing you to access the internet from anywhere in your home while also enjoying fast and stable Herotel Fibre or Wireless Internet connectivity.
