Business WiFi Support
Enhanced Business WiFi comes with one Access Point that will cover approximately 1,000 square feet. Customers with Businesses larger than 2,000 square feet and who want more coverage throughout their Business, can lease additional Access Points. Each additional Access Point covers approximately 1,000 square feet. A trained Atlantic Broadband technician visits your Business to perform testing and produce a heat map of your Wi-Fi signal strength. The technician recommends how many Enhanced Business Wi-Fi access points you need from Atlantic Broadband and installs them.

Enhanced Business WiFi utilizes intelligent Access Points that have “Client and Band steering.” Multiple wireless networks do not need to be shown. As a result, this simplifies the process for adding to and monitoring devices on your Business WiFi network.
Access Points are dual band capable, supporting 2.4 and 5 GHz frequency bands simultaneously.
No, Enhanced Business WiFi units incorporate something called “Band Steering technology” to ensure that every device connects to the network for the best experience possible. This includes forcing older wireless devices to 2.4 GHz so that higher-end/more current dual-band devices do not get negatively impacted and receive slower speeds.
