It turns out, getting faster home Internet is really easy, and you're probably doing it wrong. 

According to this video from Vox, there are five extremely simple ways to increase your wifi signal at home (hint: naming your network "3rdFloorAssHoleSTFUonYourBalcony" is not one of them).

Basically, it all boils down to moving your router to a better spot.

Yes, you've probably been suspecting this was the case for a long time, but were too lazy to actually find out if walls affected the signal (hint: they do). So do other electronics such as TVs, microwaves, etc. 

Take two minutes, watch the video, and maybe save yourself hours of screaming at your laptop and cursing your service provider.
