You may have very fast broadband, or perhaps even a fibre leased line, and yet you find that your Wi-Fi is frustratingly slow. When you do a test, it confirms that it is much slower than your hard-wired connections. But why? Part of the reason you decided to pay more for additional bandwidth was so that you would have faster Wi-Fi, but alas - it seems to still run at a snail's pace! This is because the speed of a Wi-Fi wireless network connection depends on several factors. And like most types of computer networks, Wi-Fi supports varying levels of performance, depending on the technology standard.
