Working From Home – It’s All About the Router!

Nov 13, 20


Your best route to great internet coverage is a good router! Our WSIPC Purchasing Program partners have the hardware you need to ensure your family can work and learn from home.

COVID-19 has changed our working and learning landscapes. And with many of our districts’ employees working from home, the question of reliable internet connectivity is often raised. Although Wi-Fi speeds play a role in the quality of your internet connection, your Wi-Fi router also plays an important part.

Your router communicates between the internet and the devices in your home. A good router not only lets you work from home without interruption, it also allows your entire family to work, learn, and play online simultaneously without slowing down your connection

At WSIPC, we understand how vital it is that you and your family can all reliably work and learn online. Through our WSIPC Purchasing Program, you have access to our awarded Computer Hardware & Equipment vendors (WSIPC RFP 20-01 Computer Hardware & Equipment) who have the hardware you need to ensure uninterrupted internet coverage.
