AxSA: Factoid of the Week
High-speed Internet providers love to talk about the performance of their services, which can reach, on average, as much as 300 megabits per second, but what does not get told to end-users is that the manner of their connectivity typically affects that performance. Take wi-fi connections, for example. The location of, and the power supply to, a router, as well as the presence of any other airwave and wi-fi devices, can impair the remote connection between that router and the end-user’s computer or tablet. In fact, according to a recent whitepaper from content-delivery firm Akamai, most people only receive about 50% of the performance available to them.
