Internet connection speed change depending on number of networks on one Wi-Fi channel

Hasan Jawad, Thekra Abbas


Wi-Fi networks are now becoming the main method of connecting to the Internet. At the same time, when deploying and designing networks, the fact that network bandwidth is reduced when there are several networks on one channel is not taken into account. This factor is as important as walls and ceilings, which reduce the signal coverage area. The article presents the results of an experiment on measuring bandwidth when connecting to the Internet via a WI-FI network with a different number of networks on one channel. The fact of a decrease in network throughput with a different number of networks is confirmed. With twenty access points, the Internet connection speed is reduced by a factor of three. Thus, the number of networks on one channel should be taken into account when deploying a network and managing traffic.
