Telecom Agency: step by slow wifi on 5GHz




The Radiocommunications Agency anticipates that problems related to network speeds can be resolved as more people switch to the 5 GHz band. Users would have to switch over to this by adjusting the settings on their router.

More than half of the users of wireless networks in residential areas and city centers suffer from poor connections, because the 2.4GHz band is crowded and interfering networks in this band, according to the Radiocommunications Agency. Overall, 20 percent of the measurements at 180 locations in cities and neighborhoods the outcome that the connection “bad” to “very bad”.

“Especially in the malls interefentieniveaus and the number of active networks are extremely high. On average, more than 50 access points were found, causing major performance problems on the 2.4GHz band,” writes Strict , which was commissioned by the Radiocommunications Agency investigation Wi-Fi network problems. In addition to the increase in data usage and the number of access points to 2.4 GHz band, the researchers call the growth of WiFi repeaters as the cause.

The 5GHz connections were much better, the researchers found. The data throughput test was 91 percent as a result “very good” and 9 percent “good”. The researchers therefore recommend as much of the 5 GHz band to use as users of dual-band routers suffer from slow 2.4GHz connections. In addition, the researchers recommend to explore the possibilities for reducing the transmission power. Offloading data to public hotspots to relieve 3G and 4G networks, such providers have examined, the researchers
