This story is part of Home Tips near me, collection of practical advice for getting the most out of your home, inside and out.

If you’re fortunate enough to live in Charleston area with multiple internet service providers, you face a tough choice: Which will provide the best home internet connection for the cheapest price? Meanwhile, how can you connect to Wi-Fi for free while making the decision?

Whether we’re using it for work, school or play, broadband has become a utility nearly on par with electricity and water. We’ve put together a cheat sheet full of our expert advice to help answer your most pressing home internet questions.

Which internet service provider should I choose?

Picking an ISP isn’t easy, especially these days when you have more options — hello, 5G fixed wireless! — than ever before. We has taken the time to examine some of the top ISPs in the country to help level the playing field for you. We can help you cut through the clutter to determine the right provider for you and what plans best fit your household’s needs.

Which Wi-Fi router is best? 

Once you’ve decided on an ISP, you might consider choosing a router. We’ve tested dozens of routers over the last few years and can help you find what you’re looking for — whether it’s a Wi-Fi 6 router, a mesh router system, a gaming router or a Wi-Fi extender system.

How can I save money on my internet bills each month?

Finding ways to cut costs is top of mind for many of us. Just as we might scrutinize how often we leave the lights on when trying to trim our electricity bill, we can explore ways to save a little money on our broadband service. Whether investing in a router or learning to better manage your data caps, we’ve got suggestions to help you save.

How can I speed up my Wi-Fi?

We all want to get the most out of what we pay for. But even if we’re subscribing to our provider’s fastest plan, we may not feel the effects of those zippy download speeds in our Wi-Fi. Here are some avenues to explore to see if your setup could be better maximized, or perhaps your ISP may be to blame near you. 

    What’s the best way to keep hackers off my home Wi-Fi?

    You might be well versed in spotting phishing scams but not as tuned into the dangers posed to your household’s wireless broadband connections. Let us get you up to speed.

      Ruslan was great and a dedicated, true professional technician. While respectful of our home, he quickly analyzed and solved issues with aging CAT6 ethernet at matrix & wall. I am a 40-year electronics industry veteran and All Wiring Needs is the best commercial & residential technician I’ve encountered in SC. Highly recommended.

      I am an assistant manager at a small business and we hired Ruslan to help get our store POS system in better order. He was absolutely wonderful to work with! He was flexible with our schedule, very responsive, and easy to get a hold of. He called our POS technical support and worked directly with them so he knew exactly what we needed here. Technology can be stressful and he took a lot of the stress out of the entire process. We will continue to be using him for all of our needs!

      Moved our store with very little notice. No drop ceiling to facilitate wiring. Ruslav accommodated our tight schedule and got everything working perfectly.

      Ruslan is awesome! He's responsive, friendly, and prompt. He was very respectful of our home, and was so kind to both our children and pets. Our Ethernet issue was challenging, but he was diligent and persistent, explaining everything as we went along. He double checked to make sure all ports were working properly before leaving. I would call Ruslan again, and highly recommend him. Thanks Ruslan, it was lovely to meet with you!

      We were in a bind based on several factors and our office needed to be wired in a few days-we connected with Ruslan and he not only did the work as planned-he was very neat and ensured it all looked great. Friendly -prompt and courteous-I would highly recommend to anyone that needs a professional that is technically good and reliable.
