Tips for a Stable and Faster Internet Connection As millions of people self-isolate to help flatten the curve of COVID-19, internet usage has surged, causing strain on connections. As a result, YouTube even announced plans to reduce video quality over the course of a month to better handle the high demand. Here are some tips to make your connection more stable during the coronavirus pandemic: 1. Make sure your router is connected properly and placed in an ideal area. Keep it away from TVs, cordless phones and stereos. 2. Don't use your microwave. According to U.K. telecoms regulator Ofcom, using your microwave can interfere with Wi-Fi signals. 3. Disconnect other devices from the Wi-Fi when you're not using them. They can use the internet in the background even when you're not using them, causing your connection to slow down. 4. Connect your computer to your router via Ethernet. Connecting your computer directly to the router provides better internet speeds than Wi-Fi.
