Your Fido modem offers dual-band WiFi, meaning it broadcasts two network frequencies to choose from:
- 2.4 GHz – for broader WiFi coverage
- 5 GHz – for faster speeds
Band steering is a feature that simplifies your home WiFi experience by automatically and continuously connecting your devices to the frequency that’s offering the best signal, least amount of interference and is overall better suited to your device. In rare occasions, you might face some issues when band steering is turned on. If you ever encounter these issues, you can learn how to fix them here.
