If you’re reading this from a computer or device connected to your home WiFi connection, chances are you’re being ripped off.
Rick Bennett, 52, was frustrated. He had just convinced his boss to let him work from home—a dream he’d had for many years—and was looking forward to the comfortable working environment. But his comfort was to be short-lived.
He tried to retrieve his email, but each message seemed to take forever. The email program actually got stuck and he had to restart it several times just to get the mail.
This was totally unacceptable.
He had a three bedroom home and everywhere he went the internet speed just seemed to get slower! His cable provider was worthless. He spent close to an hour on the phone, and they gave him a “window” for when a technician could come look at it. From 8am to 6pm he’d have to sit around and wait. AND THE APPOINTMENT WAS IN TWO WEEKS, UNACCEPTABLE WAIT!!
The technician, Barry (name changed to protect his identity – we know his employer is going to want to know who spilled the beans), came out and “fixed” Rick’s internet, pulling it back up to acceptable speeds. He seemed like a relaxed and friendly guy, so Rick offered him a beer.
“I really shouldn’t, man,” Barry said as he accepted it.
The more Rick and Barry talked, the friendlier they got. And when Rick told him that he was working from home, Barry told him he was just going to have to deal with the same problem again in a few weeks. Rick couldn’t believe what he was hearing.
“They give you the speeds you asked for,” Barry said, “at first. But then they throttle the bandwidth. They electronically tamper with the router, which is ‘conveniently’ combined with the modem nowadays, so that your internet gets slower over time.”
“How can they do that?” Rick asked. “Can’t you look at how fast your modem is going?”
“Yeah, man. But they split the speed between two channels, so they can tell you you’re getting the same speed. But you’re only using one channel at a time, so really it’s divided in half. It’s all so you buy the next ‘upgrade’ in their package.”
Furious, but not surprised, Rick told Barry that he might as well not even fix it. That he’d be changing providers immediately.
“It’s not gonna help,” Barry said. “They all do it. All the ISPs. If they all do it, they can all get customers that want to ‘upgrade.’ It’s all about profits. It’s ‘The Man,’ man.”
Exasperated, Rick fell back in his chair.
“Is there anything I can do?” He asked, defeated.
Barry finished his beer with a satisfied gulp and went out to his truck, returning with a small white device. He plugged it in the wall and dusted off his hands with a satisfied smirk on his face.
“You didn’t get this from me, man,” he said. “It’s a SuperBoost Wifi. It reconnects the split channels from your router and blasts it across the house. Trust me, man, you’re not gonna have any troubles with speed anymore.”
Rick thanked Barry for the amazing gift. Barry only had one thing to say:
“Thanks for the beer, man.”
Curious about this “SuperBoost Wifi”, we decided to do some research of our own.
Turns out it’s an extremely useful product that extends the range of your WiFi while maximizing speed, and all you have to do is plug it into the wall. It takes the speed from the different channels coming out of your modem and combines them into one super-fast networks. And the antennas allow for better, more consistent performance.
It’s great for multi-story homes if your WiFi connection isn’t as strong as you’d like it to be. The connection even extends into the backyard and beyond. And the best part?
It works with ANY WiFi router. So no matter what you already have, it can boost it. You can create 2 WiFi modes, one to boost the existing connection or a new one to use as an access point. Plus, it protects who has access to it, just like your current router.
It really worked! The Wifi was strong and flying fast!
SuperBoost Wifi arrived in three days! We plugged it in! In 5 minutes everyone was online!
1) Netflix was fast! Top resolution!
2) Ebay worked great even in the basement!
3) Everyone connected! No lags, no dead spots!!
Awesome! SuperBoost WiFi worked as advertised!!
