Want to improve your gaming experience and level up? 🧐 Time to read this! Skills are important, but the quality of your network is too! If your network often lags and takes a long time to upload and download data, it can pull you down and make you lose your games!

Now let’s see Why Wi-Fi 6 is good for you!

Wi-Fi 6 is the latest generation of the Wi-Fi Standard. It offers higher network efficiency and speeds up your connections! With more bandwidth, you can connect your router to multiple devices and still surf at high speed!

There are two key technologies speeding up Wi-Fi 6 connections:

  • OFDMA technology and

OFDMA (Orthogonal frequency-division multiple access) allows data transmission to and from multiple devices at once; This resolves network congestion by allocating bandwidth more efficiently.

Similarly, MU-MIMO (Multi-user, multiple-input, multiple-output technology) lowers congestion and improves network performance. With better download speeds, users suffer less from freezes and buffering.


Wi-Fi 6 usually comes with the latest security protocol - WPA3 gives you higher internet security! With robust authentication, it is more difficult for hackers to guess your passwords and intrude your network.🔒

Another great feature for gamers is VPN (Virtual Private Network). 🛡️ With the ability to change IP address and location, you can access games that are not available in your country and get a wider variety of choices. With an encrypted connection, you are also less prone to DDOS attacks.
