I just don't know if there is any technical explanation to this but a lot has been saying that their internet signal weakens when it's raining. Well, it appears true to me. However, I do believe that the kind of internet connection that you have is also a great factor. As to my case, I'm using the very unstable broadband plug-it modem where users can have the maximum 2.00Mbps speed. Take note, it is not fixed, that is just the maximum speed that your plug-it could ever have. To be honest, I've never seen that 2.00Mbps figure in my plug-it's monitoring window ever since I had it.For a person like me who utilizes the internet 24/7 to earn a living, its speed is very important. I've been thinking of making my entire place a wifi area before but since I'm not living in my permanent residence and the possibility of transferring can happen anytime, I didn't pursue it. That's the very reason why I chose the post-paid plug-it modem so that wherever I go, I can have an internet connection.
Yes, I have the luxury of accessibility but I'm suffering the unstable signal and the very slow speed. There was even a time that both of my uploading and downloading rate are having the irritating 0.00 figures. I can't even have a decent video call in skype or in Yahoo Messenger (good thing I don't have a long distance relationship wherein a video call is a must LOL!). Anyway, at times likes that, I discovered one thing that could boost my internet connection. It was shared to me by my doctor friend and when I tried it myself, it works. He said that whenever you're buffering a Youtube video or any videos online like anime series episodes, your uploading and downloading rates will increase. That's why the first two spots in my 31-tab chrome window are occupied by narutoget.com and Youtube's longest video.
Now going back to the topic that made me post this entry. Does the rain really affect the internet signal? I need some technical explanation about it because the country is already in its rainy season nowadays and I might be having a very slow internet connection most of the time. -niceurdaneta-
