Does the Wi-Fi signal cover my house?

The WiBroniks modems come with basic Wi-Fi capability similar to the Fibroniks modem. Wi-Fi coverage is unique to every House / Building. ZOL Zimbabwe will use its best efforts to provide useful and reliable Internet service. Wi-Fi utilises public, unlicensed radio-frequency spectrum, as such, Wi-Fi is subject to external interferences, environmental influences, and other factors and variables beyond reasonable control. Performance and coverage may be affected by:

  • Transmission and download speed and accuracy;
  • Network congestion by other devices on your network;
  • Performance of your computer, tablets PCs, Smartphones and other devices, configuration, and functionality of your Wi-Fi devices and wireless cards (including, but not limited to memory, storage and other limitations);
  • Physical obstructions and distances between your Wi-Fi Access point and the Wi-Fi network. This maybe your building design, construction materials and the distance to intended coverage areas, especially to outdoor areas and detached buildings;
  • Availability of electric power;
  • Transmission and equipment limitations, failures, maintenance or repair;
  • User error.

In certain circumstances repeaters are required to extend Wi-Fi coverage. For extension of Wi-Fi coverage outside the default coverage of the modem provided by ZOL Zimbabwe, our ZOL Geeks are always available to assist you at a cost.
