Saying fast Wi-Fi is important to me is a bit of an understatement. As someone whose brand is based solely online, fast Wi-Fi is a necessity for me. I need to be connected at all times, on all of my devices. My professional world (as ridiculous as this may sound) revolves around Wi-Fi. So you can imagine my frustration two weeks ago when I was attempting to send a Power Point presentation to one of my consulting clients when the Wi-Fi suddenly slowed down. I’m not talking a little hiccup, I’m talking a complete halt. What normally should take no more than a few minutes to upload the document and send, was taking 20 minutes just to attach the file to the email thread. As panic started to set in, I realized why my Wi-Fi stopped working at it’s normal speed- my boyfriend was on a video conference call in the other room. Since I didn’t know how long his call would last and I needed to get the presentation to my client STAT, I grabbed my laptop and ran to the coffee shop two blocks away to use the Wi-Fi there. Needless to say the whole thing was a tad bit stressful. That’s why when I was approached about giving Google Wifi a try, I couldn’t say yes fast enough.

The first thing I noticed about Google Wifi was how beautifully designed the points were. The all white sphere with the small G at the top is the definition of stunning minimalist design and it fits my home decor perfectly.

I downloaded the Google Wifi app (yes, it even has its own app), connected the first point to my modem and placed the other two points around the house. I was immediately shocked at how well it actually works! I even get great Wi-Fi in the bathroom and on the patio- the two places I was constantly losing service in.

I think what really makes Google Wifi awesome is the Google Wifi app. With the app you can set all kinds of parameters- you can see what devices are signed on, you can create a guest network for your friends and you can even pause the Wi-Fi during various times of day when you need a break from too much screen time. I’ve been pausing it when I’m trying to relax at the end of my night. It┬ákeeps me from incessantly trying to check my emails and Instagram account when I should be spending time with my boyfriend and my dogs.

Google Wifi is perfect for those of us who think of using the Internet as a way of life. Now I can binge-watch my Netflix shows while Face-timing my friends without missing a beat.

    What a great design and it isn’t too big either. I didn’t realise google did wifi.

  • This sounds like such a great idea, I have a smallish two bedroom flat and usually my wifi is okay but it would be nice to have good strength in the opposite end of the flat too x

    • Yeah it’ll definitely help in a flat that size Rhian!

    I use sky at home and that’s great but Keysurf at uni is the worst! Can never stay on the internet continuously! Didn’t know this google wifi even existed but I think I’ll definitely have to get it when I move into my next student house if the internet is still as bad!

    • It’ll definitely help Kira!

    • It’s perfect for speeding up slow internet!

  • Leah Shafik

    Is this a contract then? Or do you use it as a way to make your wi-fi signal stronger? I get so stressed about slow internet and even with fibre it’s not fast enough. Especially when uploading videos. x

    • You just use it to make your wifi stronger. It makes a world of difference Leah!

  • theCuriousPixie
