But if you’re like most folks, a growing percentage of your data usage comes on wirelessly connected devices via your in-home WiFi. And as we’ve covered previously, as soon as you are on WiFi, you can expect your Internet speeds to drop significantly.
In this article, we take a look at a few tips you can implement to ensure you’re getting the absolute best out of your amazing C Spire Fiber Gigabit Internet connection when using WiFi.

Gig is short for Gigabit which is a measurement unit commonly used when talking about Internet network speeds. So when you hear Gigabit or Megabit or Kilobit, you’re really talking about Bits Per Second (and multiples thereof). It’s a measurement of how many Bits (chunks of data) travel over a network per second.
When it comes to Internet Speeds, bigger is better. The more data your connection can support, the better quality video you can stream, the more video you can simultaneously stream, and the better overall experience you will enjoy.
