Default Broadband signal boosters

if I go to one side of my house or garage itís faster for me to use 4g then the Sky WiFi.

Iím looking at getting a few Ring products but donít know which one would be best at strengthening the signal.

I assume they both do the same job. Is there a way of comparing outputs?

I work for one of sky's competitors .

WiFi by all providers was heavily marketed in the wrong way and many adverts were forced to be withdrawn by the advertising standards authority because they were miss leading

So many factors effect WiFi
Distance, wall thickness build materials, number of devices and WiFi signals within your area and not just your own home.
The most unknown by consumers is electrical interference that can be cased by anything electrical, obviously the bigger/more power hungry the appliance the more potential impact. Such as fridge freezers microwaves and sound systems. (Rein / Shine)

U could go and spend hundreds on top end router and still get drop outs, no coverage and slow speeds.

Apple devices are generally ****, different hardware and software is a lot less compatible than like for like android/Microsoft devices. Get an apple router and then an improvement will be seen. (with apple you by a brand not a device)

The BT whole home WiFi solution (3 disk set) its about £200 but the reviews are good as it works on a mesh network which differs from the bacis extenders.
