What do if my speed test results indicate that there’s an issue? 


Before contacting us, there’s a few things you can do to isolate the issue:

1)  Check out Network status page for any outage or maintenance notifications

2)  If there’s a large discrepancy between your WiFi speed result & Wired, try:

     - Switching between the 5GHz and 2.4GHz WiFi Networks

     - Changing your WiFi channel 

     - Reducing the number of devices connected to your WiFi

      - Try an alternative WiFi modem

3) Check how many apps you have running in the back ground
