OmniTel Connections for Summer 2022

There are people out there who love the challenge of researching why their home’s Wi-Fi network isn’t working right and figuring out what needs to be done to solve the problem. If you’re not one of them, Omni-Fi Managed Wi-Fi Service could be your easy alternative. Omni-Fi Managed Wi-Fi Service takes the hassles of Wi-Fi troubleshooting (and more) off your hands. Once you sign up for OmniFi Managed Wi-Fi Service, OmniTel Communications will handle a variety of Wi-Fi tasks for you: • Installation of a new 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 router. (If additional coverage is needed, you can choose to add nodes for a small additional fee. The system is expandable.) • Selection of the best router location in your home for optimal coverage and signal strength • Setup of your Wi-Fi security password to avoid others using your Wi-Fi network without your permission • Connection of your devices—such as laptops, tablets, phones, and printer—to the Wi-Fi network • In-home troubleshooting should the Wi-Fi service stop working or function poorly • Repair or replacement of the Wi-Fi router when needed If you don’t have Omni-Fi Managed Wi-Fi Service and need in-home help with a router you purchased on your own, you’ll have to pay the hourly fee for a service call by one of our technicians. This can get pricey if you end up with a series of Wi-Fi issues. It all comes down to this: Using your devices on a fast and reliable home Wi-Fi network is lots of fun. But doing the work of Wi-Fi setup and troubleshooting—not so much. Why not let somebody else handle Wi-Fi? OmniTel Communications offers Omni-Fi Managed Wi-Fi Service for just $15.00/month.

OmniTel CONNECTIONS SUMMER 2022 Are you wondering whether or not your home needs an internet speed upgrade? If you see these signs, the answer is probably “yes.” 1. You experience frequent buffering while streaming. It’s not fun when your screen freezes and you’re stuck waiting while the endless circle goes around and around. Buffering is the result of an internet connection that isn’t fast enough and a sign you need more speed. 2. You’re planning to add more streaming subscriptions. Does your family love streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Video? Be aware that adding more streaming subscriptions (or additional streaming devices) can quickly bog down your internet connection, especially if you have multiple people streaming simultaneously. 3. You’re big on smart home devices. If you’re a smart home fan, you need to make sure your internet connection can support your smart speakers, smart light bulbs, smart thermostats, smart cameras, smart appliances and so on. Trying to get by with an inadequate internet connection is simply not smart. 4. Your home often has guests (who bring devices). Whether it’s your children’s friends for sleepovers or your relatives for a week-long visit, it seems like everybody will want to use your Wi-Fi as soon as they walk in the door. If you don’t have enough bandwidth, the “more” isn’t the “merrier”—it can cause internet slowdowns. 5. You work from home. Bandwidth-intensive applications such as video conferences and screen-sharing collaborations demand a strong internet connection. Don’t risk looking unprofessional or wasting your colleagues’ time with frozen screens and choppy audio. Make sure your internet connection works well for work. For help choosing the right internet speed for your home, call OmniTel Communications at 641-749-2531. We’ll talk with you about your online requirements and provide details about our selection of internet plans. 5 SIGNS YOUR HOME MAY NEED FASTER INTERNET Cornerstone Group © 2021 OMNITEL COMMUNICATIONS AWARDS GRANTS Giving back to others has always been an important part of who we are at OmniTel Communications.
