A DSL modem is required for DSL access. We have wireless modems available for $155.00 + tax. BASIC INSTALLATION IS ONLY $50.00. We also offer a protection plan for $4.99 (monthly) that would cover lightning damage or damage from power spikes as long as the modem is plugged into an approved surge protector.

TOP 9 REASONS FOR SLOW WI-FI
1. The distance between your Wi-Fi router/modem and your device is too far. The further the distance, the weaker the signal, and the slower the Wi-Fi speeds.
2. There are “blockers” that can block or interrupt the Wi-Fi Signal Don’t place your Wi-Fi Router/Modem behind obstacles such as in cabinet or closet since these act as blockers which prevent the wifi signal from passing through. The more walls the Wi-Fi signal has to travel through, the weaker your signal will become. This is because construction material such as plaster and lath, duct work, and electrical lines can act as a “blocker” since the radio waves have issues passing through these types of materials. It’s much like when you are passing through a tunnel while driving and lose your radio signal. Same thing happens with your Wi-Fi signal when it has to pass through walls.
3. Cordless phones, baby monitors, microwaves, oh my! Cordless phones, microwaves, baby monitors, wireless security cameras and wireless speakers all operate on the same frequencies and can lower your Wi-Fi speeds. Even electronics such as fluorescent lights, wireless controllers, older Bluetooth devices, and plasma TV’s can interfere. Devices such as these run on the same frequency as your standard Wi-Fi, 2.4GHz. When you have many things running on the same wave length this can cause a “traffic jam” of frequencies and contributes to your slow WiFi.
4. Interference from other Wi-Fi Routers/Modems: When you live in a congested area with people who are using the same Wi-Fi as you, your signal is fighting with all the other signals for speed. Some of the more advance, newer routers and modems have the capability of switching to the 5GHz band which is less congested than the older and more crowded 2.4GHz band. If you are unsure if your modem is capable of this, check the routers specification.
5. Devices: Your device can’t handle advanced speeds Not all devices are created equal. Newer smartphones, tablets and computers will typically be faster than older ones, but they still may not be able to reach full wired speeds. Most routers/modems will slow down to the speed of your slowest device. This means that if you have other devices that have the capability of operating at faster speeds, they will be stopped from reaching their full potential by the slower device. If you need full speeds for a large download or gaming, consider connecting a device directly to the modem using an Ethernet cable. The wired speed is almost always faster than the Wifi speed. This is because the internet is connected directly with the device.
6. Reboot: When was the last time you rebooted your Wi-Fi system? Many times, rebooting your modem will fix your connectivity issues. The reason for this is because most electronics were not designed or built to be running all of the time with no breaks. A reboot every now and then is highly recommended to ensure your Wi-Fi performance stays in tip top shape.
7. Connections: Check your coaxial connection at your modem and cable outlet.
8. Devices Gone Wild: You could have one device that is hogging all of the available bandwidth and hindering your speed.When a device isn’t working properly, it can cause a disruption with all the other devices on the network. Since your wireless network is only as fast as your slowest device, having a device that is hogging up all the speed will cause your other electronics to run slow as well.
9. Keep It Fresh: Old firmware or operating systems can cause slow connections. Ensuring your devices are updated to the most recent software will help to keep your device running correctly. Ensuring your devices operating system and firmware are up to date
will help to ensure better connectivity. This includes items such as your phones, tablets,
