What factors affect internet speed? Your network and Wi-Fi connections play a big part. Fios is a 100% fiber-optic network. Other networks use copper wires, which don’t
transfer data as fast as fiber-optics. You can boost your Wi-Fi signal by placing
your router in a central location. That can affect the speed at which data is
transmitted to your devices. Look for a spot away from windows, cement
walls, and electronic appliances. Your devices are important, too. Devices that are outdated, damaged, or corrupted
by malware can slow you down. Your bandwidth matters as well. If you’re streaming or gaming, or if multiple
people are using your network, you may want faster speeds for more bandwidth. Fios Gigabit Connection offers our fastest
speeds and the most bandwidth. For more information, go to verizon.com/learn.
