Getting smart about your faster Wi-Fi connection

Network speed and Wi-Fi speed

The speed you get on hardwired computers is different than the speed of your Wi-Fi. Your hardwired computer is connected directly to your network. The Wi-Fi signal travels through the air to reach your devices. That’s why it’s affected by walls and other signals.

Go to and take your network for a test run! The speed test will measure the speed delivered to the specific device you’re using for the test. We recommend running this speed test from a computer that’s wired to the Frontier-supplied router. Using a wireless device won’t give you an accurate measure of the speed, as it’ll test the speed of your home Wi-Fi rather than the speed of the network connection.

Here are some quick facts to guide
you to peak performance.


Many factors affect your Wi-Fi

    Location makes a difference:
  • Distance from the Wi-Fi router or extender
  • Thick walls or router and devices on different floors

  • Other devices can affect your signal too:
  • Cordless phones, baby monitors & microwaves
  • Devices using Bluetooth
  • Other Wi-Fi networks near your home


Newer devices deliver better performance

If you have Fiber Internet service, the speed of your service will likely exceed the capabilities of your mobile devices, even if they’re the latest models. The older your mobile device, the more likely you’ll have older Wi-Fi technology that’ll result in slower Wi-Fi speed results. However, the Fiber Internet service will still support multiple devices at the same time.
