Keys to a Great Internet Experience

The Internet has become a big part of many of our lives. We use it for work, entertainment, communication, and for daily activities. With the Internet’s ever growing importance in our lives, wouldn’t it make sense to invest in quality broadband service?

PTCI believes in delivering the best broadband experience possible to our customers which is why we have tools available to help you get the most out of your service. One of the most important aspects for outstanding broadband speed and signal is called a router. A router is the device that transmits WIFI throughout your home or business. Since PTCI understands that your router directly affects your Internet experience, we offer dual-band routers.

A classic router only offers one signal for your devices to connect to. Unfortunately, only so many devices can connect to a signal before you start experiencing issues like lag, poor video quality, and slow download speeds. Additionally, the slowest device connected to a single-band router will slow down every other connected device to match its speed. With a dual-band router, you have two separate signals to work with. This allows you to be able to connect more devices to your WIFI and enjoy your broadband service to a much higher degree. Just remember that you must split your devices onto the two signals to fully take advantage of the power a dual-band router offers. If you put all of your devices on one signal, then you are basically going to experience the same performance as you would with a classic single-band router. If you have a family that likes to connect to the Internet or if you have more than 5 devices running simultaneously on WIFI then a dual-band router is definitely for you!

Another important tool that is key for a good Internet experience is called a modem. A modem is a device used to transmit data to other devices. For example, your router will not work without a modem. The modem transmits data to your router and the router then transmits that data into a WIFI signal. If a modem stops working properly then Internet issues soon follow. Thankfully, PTCI provides modems upon broadband installation so you don’t have to worry about picking one up and if your provided modem did actually quit working, PTCI will replace it with a new one.

The most important aspect to a great Internet experience, however, is a great provider. PTCI makes it a priority to provide quality broadband, cellular, television, and telephone services to our customers. This is our community too, and so our customers are not just customers but our neighbors, friends, and family. Our close connection to the local community motivates us to provide you with the best experience possible.

Many factors are relevant when it comes to having an excellent Internet experience. Because the Internet has become such a huge part of our lives, it’s always smart to try to stay up to date. Hopefully this article saved you some time!
