Do April Showers Affect My Internet’s Power
A slow internet connection on a wet day is a sure way to turn the rain into a downpour. Sadly, the loading circle appears too often on those dreary, bad weather days and may be due to the outside elements affecting your internet power.
Having a reliable internet connection (and a warm blanket) is vital in these situations. Without it, the perfect rainy day goes to shambles and ends in frustration. Understanding what April showers, January snowstorms and October thunder bring your internet connection and speed is crucial to ensuring your day inside goes as planned.
For those with fiber-optic internet, a rainy day can turn into a day of catching up on your favorite tv show or doing that YouTube home project you’ve been dying to finish. Fiber-optic internet sends out light beams down thin strands of glass. Without the use of metal and electrical signals, storms do not hinder the connection process. With BEEtv, you will be able to stream your movie, rain or shine, without any problems. Even when the weather isn’t reliable, your Fiber-optic connection always will be.
If you are using DSL for your internet connection, it is likely that at some point in the journey, copper wires are being used. These types of connections are electric in nature and can be damaged or affected by moisture. When this damage occurs, internet speeds can be reduced or the connection can be blocked completely. With DSL Internet it is also important to be aware of electrical storms. When lightning starts striking, there is no saying where it might hit and if your internet is in the way, it will be damaged.
However, if it is storming and your internet connection is a little slower than usual, it could also be due to the fact that others had the same idea as you. With many people indoors and keeping themselves entertained through electronics, the bandwidth of your wifi will be stretched thin causing it to run a little slower. If you run into these issues, make sure to contact Beehive Broadband to figure out what the problem is, or to see if you are eligible for a service upgrade.
