People are just realizing common Android and iPhone mistake is destroying Wi

Jul 10, 2023

AT&T has revealed a common app mistake that can slow your Wi-Fi router speed.

It takes seconds to fix and you may see an instant free speed boost.

AT&T says: "Exit streaming apps after watching videos or listening to music."

That can improve your device speed because it puts less pressure on your router.

The tech giant adds: "The number of devices you connect to Wi-Fi, how you use them, their age and type, and Wi-Fi signal strength all can affect speed."

Fortunately, the app problem has an easy fix.

Close streaming and music apps when you stop using them on all your devices including phones, laptops, and TVs.

Avoid having too many devices using your Wi-Fi at the same time unless you have to.

Beginning huge downloads while streaming or browsing is also taking place is a recipe for disaster.

You can try to schedule any big downloads or updates for the early hours while everyone is sleeping.

This will free up the router from its excessive daily demands while allowing each internet user to avoid disruption.

AT&T also says to "reboot devices regularly to clear system errors" and "Set auto-updates on apps, gaming consoles, and PCs to run when your network isn't busy."

If the problem still doesn't improve, you may be facing Wi-Fi position issues.

You should put your Wi-Fi router as central in your home as possible.

Generally, you should keep it in an open area that's raised off the ground.

Always make sure your router is plugged into the master socket rather than an extension cable so it works faster.
