Frequently Asked Questions

How does wifi work?

Wifi – which stands for Wireless Fidelity – works as the modem distributes signals. It uses 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz radio frequencies to send signals between devices, including mobile phones, laptops, desktops, tablets, and more. You may also know it from the term Wireless Local Area Network or WLAN.

As these are only communicated through signals, it can easily be a subject of interferences, such as being near power lines or other wireless devices like speakers and monitors. To avoid this, it’s best to place your router in your line of sight, so it can distribute signals better.

How is wifi affected by routers?

As wifi is heavily dependent on the routers, it’s no wonder that they’re the primary factor to determine your broadband speeds. If you’re experiencing lag with your wireless connection, it may be because of the age of your router.

It’s important to replace your modem regularly… after all, it’s still an electronic device just like your mobile and laptops. There isn’t a fixed timeline of switching, but it’s advisable to change routers every two years.

What are the average wifi speeds in New Zealand?

It actually depends on how fast your broadband speeds are. Of course, if it’s maximum speeds only reach up to 10Mbps, expect to get only around 6-9Mbps with wifi. The more modern your router is, the better it can distribute signals – that’s why getting an excellent wifi deal is important.

I’ve just had a great experience with Kurt from glimp compare. He helped me through the process from the time I clicked onto the website, via the chat function. Long story short I have signed up to a new power and broadband provider with significant cost savings. There was no pressure at any stage, just respectful guidance and facilitation to initiate the new supply.

Easiest service to use and knowledgeable and experienced staff. Made switching power and broadband stress free! Thanks Jamie S, they answered all my questions I had about starting a new connection for broadband and power - even better than calling Slingshot direct as I got 3 months free internet and credit for using my own modem :)
