For most people, all Wireless Internet connections equal to ‘Wi-Fi’. As is the case with most technical jargons, this simplistic definition of the word Wi-Fi fails to do complete justice to it.
It is not uncommon to hear people blame their service provider when their Internet or ‘Wi-Fi’ is slow or not performing at its optimum best. A lot of people will also be surprised (or shocked) to know that sometimes the problem may lie in the Wireless Router that you’re using and not with the service provider. How? To answer this question, it’s important to understand how the Internet data flows.
Imagine you’re drinking your favourite milkshake using a straw – it is the size of the straw that determines how quickly you finish off your favourite milkshake; thicker the straw more the amount of liquid that flows. Internet data flows through the spectral bandwidth just like the milkshake through the straw.
While it’s impossible to see the spectrum, all data from the Internet travels through this specific channel. And so, if one intends to increase the amount of data that can flow, widening the spectrum is one way to do it.
So what is an AC Router and how does it help?
Wireless-AC Routers can transmit wireless data much faster than the Wireless-N and Wireless-G Routers by widening the spectrum through which your Internet data flows. Imagine a two-lane road being transformed into a four-lane freeway – more cars can pass by and much faster.
In addition, AC Routers operate in the 5 GHz frequency band. The 2.4 GHz band where Wireless-G and Wireless-N Routers operate is usually cluttered with signal interferences from cordless phones, Bluetooth headphones, neighbouring wireless devices, etc. By rising above this clutter, AC Routers provide a much smoother Internet experience.
AC Routers offer a wide range of options to choose from – AC750 Routers, AC1200 Routers and so on.
What’s the difference between AC750 and AC1200?
Except their speeds, there isn’t much difference in the functioning of AC750 and AC1200 Routers. AC750 Routers provide speed of up to 750Mbps; while an AC1200 Router offers speed of up to 1200Mbps. And hence, if you’re looking for a router to support your massive data usage, it’s advisable to opt for an AC1200 Router.
