Can MoCA boost my WiFi Signal?
Slow or Spotty WiFi?
When everyone in the house is using WiFi at once, things can slow down and get spotty. Traditional mesh home networks can be unreliable, signals often drop, and speeds may fluctuate. You may even have dead zones in and around your home where you get no WiFi. When streaming video, your screen might freeze or buffer for a few seconds intermittently. These things can be very frustrating. Thankfully there is a quick and affordable solution: MoCA®.
How Can MoCA Improve My WiFi Signal?
Using MoCA network adapters or a MoCA WiFi extender, you can boost your WiFi signal by up to 300% for a reliable, ultrafast WiFi network for 4K streaming, lag-free gaming, and fast web surfing.
Using your in-home coaxial wiring with bonded MoCA devices, you will essentially create a 1 Gbps “Internet Autobahn” between WiFi access points for an instant performance boost. This enlarged pipeline produces faster speeds and steadier connections for all your Internet traffic.
You have two options for using MoCA. One, you can connect your devices or existing access points* to MoCA network adapters, or two, use a MoCA WiFi extender.
How Much Can MoCA Improve My Home WiFi?
On average, customers experience a 300% increase in network speed and performance using a MoCA connection.
How do we know this? In 2017 the MoCA Alliance conducted real-life WiFi home speed tests using an independent testing house, comparing WiFi Network Extenders with MoCA® against several brands of WiFi-only mesh products (802.11ac backhaul). The MoCA Extenders delivered 900 Mbps or better downlink WiFi performance while the other WiFi devices typically came in at 170 to 300 Mbps.
The study also concluded that mesh WiFi networks were less reliable than a MoCA network especially when several video streams are running at one time.
Why is MoCA So Much Better?
MoCA uses your home’s coaxial wiring as a superhighway for your home WiFi traffic, creating a gigabit “Internet Autobahn.” It boosts your WiFi signal, eliminating dead zones and providing a strong, reliable signal to stream 4K video, play online games and more.
What is the Best MoCA Option?
Your best bet in order to get the fastest, most reliable home network is a WiFi Network Extender with MoCA. Do you already have 802.11ac WiFi Access Points? Then rest assured you can still use MoCA Network Adapters as long as your home has coaxial wiring.
A standard mesh repeater only extends the WiFi signal while taking up some of the bandwidth for its connection. However, a WiFi Network Extender with MoCA uses a wired connection to your router via existing coaxial wiring in your house. This creates a super-fast backhaul while saving all the bandwidth for your WiFi devices. The result is a superhighway for your WiFi traffic with no dead zones and a fast, reliable signal for all your devices.
Devices or access points must have an Ethernet port.
