How Far Can Outdoor WiFi Boosters Reach?
The WiFi market has changed a lot in recent years. Products used to focus solely on indoor internet access, but now outdoor WiFi has become popular. As a result, outdoor WiFi AP sales have risen with more products released each year.
With such a wide selection out there, you might be wondering whether one booster is better than the other. Or you might even ask what kinds of coverage you should expect from a WiFi booster.
If you’re installing or thinking about using outdoor WiFi APs, read on to learn how you can extend the range of your outdoor internet.
How Outdoor WiFi Boosters Affect Signal Range
WiFi signals behave like sound waves. They travel in all directions and weaken with distance. Think of how hard it is to hear someone speaking in another room compared with them sitting across from you. The same works with WiFi.
A WiFi booster works the same way as someone shouting to get your attention from far away. So, where an outdoor WiFi AP might have a max range of 200 meters, a booster can extend that farther.
When communicating with multiple wireless clients, the benefits of multi-boosters include more throughput, increased frequency diversity, and reduced interference.
