STRENGTHENING YOUR INTERNET CONNECTION 

Due to many circumstances, many providers became catch with the lack of a good connection to use during the telehealth sessions. In some areas, a better connection is not even possible as the internet providers do not offer any other options. Below is an example of how you can strengthen your internet signal. In addition, it is recommended:

  1. Close all the internet tabs while working with the client, have one note program open if you prefer to not use paper;
  2. Make sure other people are not using the internet to stream services (Netflix, games, etc.), and recommend the client to do the same. 
  3. Close all the programs on your computer  (Word, Excel, etc), even if they do not use the internet connection, they will use your computer’s speed.

Option I
If you want to change the speed (I mean really change the speed!), you need to install this to your house. Depending on the size and how far are you from the router. Depending on the size of the house you would need two (Option below if it is your case and saves you $100). Most reliable and easy to install. You can also hook an internet cable from the box to your computer, no more problem with the speed!
