Looking to Upgrade Your Breezeline Internet Speed? Here’s Everything You Need to Know

Experience faster Internet with Breezeline. Discover which Breezeline users are eligible for speed upgrades plus other ways to increase Internet speed without a plan change.

Home WiFi connections keep you up to speed across nearly every aspect of your daily life. Whether you’re on a conference call, gaming, streaming music and videos, reading the news or catching up with your loved ones, home Internet has your back. Most households use their Internet connection for various activities, often simultaneously. This means each home can require different levels of bandwidth.

If you need more bandwidth to meet all your online needs, you’re likely no stranger to the frustration that comes with slow upload and download speeds. Luckily, many Breezeline users have access to increased Internet speeds! But if you aren’t among them, don’t worry. SmartMove also has a couple other tricks to help you boost your Breezeline Internet speeds.

How to Upgrade Internet Access as a Breezeline User

Before you contact Breezeline about maximizing your Internet service, it’s important to try out SmartMove’s Breezeline speed test. This test will determine whether your Internet is functioning at its optimal speed. If it’s not, you may have some troubleshooting to do. You can either try this on your own or connect with a Breezeline representative to get your Internet back up to its best working speed.

Or, maybe your Breezeline speed test will determine that your Internet connection is working at the proper speed based on your plan. But that doesn’t mean it’s meeting your needs. Instead, it means it’s time to find out whether you qualify for increased Internet upload and download speeds from Breezeline.

Currently, increased speeds are available for Breezeline users in select regions. In order to find out whether your plan qualifies for speed upgrades at this time, simply log in to your online account and follow these instructions:

  • ​Click the Billing tab
  • Scroll down and click the Statements tab
  • Find Statement Details
  • Look for  an Upgrade tab, and you should be directed to a new webpage that displays your options for upgrading
If these steps show that you are not currently eligible for a speed upgrade, you can contact your local Breezeline helpline to get more information or talk about paying for more data or faster speeds.

Easy Ways to Amp Up Your Internet Speed

Whether or not you’re able to upgrade your Breezeline Internet speeds at this time, there are several quick fixes to improve your household’s  online experience.

Sick of your streaming devices buffering mid-scene during your favorite show? Or experiencing a slow Internet connection when you’re on your mobile device? Here are some tips to speed up your Internet without changing your service plan.

Change Your Router

If you’re only experiencing slow Internet speeds on certain devices in your home but not others, the location of your router may be the problem. The more centrally your router is located to the rest of your home, the better the Internet connection will be for all of your devices. Additionally, make sure the devices requiring the highest priority are closest to the router to get the best possible connection.

Use an Ethernet Cable

Given the popularity of wireless Internet access, it’s easy to forget that a wired connection can often be much more quick and reliable. It may be slightly less convenient to attach an Ethernet cable to your device, as you can’t move around as freely. However, if you’re trying to do a data-heavy activity like on-demand streaming or gaming or even running simultaneous streams, an Ethernet cable will boost your Internet speeds significantly.

Upgrade Your Router

In some cases, you might be using a WiFi router that isn’t built for the amount of space you need to cover. Contact your Breezeline representative to find out whether a router upgrade is in order. Then you can get back to streaming your favorite cable TV channels online on your TV app, including ESPN, Fox, Showtime, TNT, Comedy Central, and many more.

Consider a WiFi Extender

A WiFi extender (not to be confused with a WiFi repeater) may also be needed if your router isn’t quite equipped to give you high-speed Internet access. WiFi extenders are easy to set up and are a great way to eradicate dead zones throughout your property.
