The internet has become an essential thing in our daily life, however, sometimes you may not be able to enjoy browsing due to poor connectivity.

Our common belief is that the problem is either the telecommunications company, bad cables, distance from the router, and many more, but on the other hand, it seems that normal conditions can also affect your Internet connection.

The effect of temperature on the internet connection

Although the effect does not include the Internet connection itself, but it does include various electronic devices. High temperatures affect your router, computer, phone, and all the devices you use. This leads to an overvoltage of the devices, making them vulnerable to damage.

It is known that the devices have different resources, however, the heat negatively affects these resources, making them unable to work normally, and we will certainly notice a weakness in the Internet connection, but the problem is not in the signal.

The effect of rain and humidity on the internet connection

During the winter, large amounts of rain fall around the world at varying rates. The problem is that rain has a significant impact on the internet signal, as it acts as a barrier to the signal passing through the wireless connection.

In addition to this, large amounts of rain can damage communication cables, especially ADSL cables that are commonly used in Arab countries. Thus, the landline telephone network, and all underground cables can be exposed to moisture in the event of a flood.

Also, signals can be interfering and blocking by causing a short circuit or a reduction in bandwidth. Even more surprisingly, even after the rain has passed, the humidity continues to affect the connection.

Besides this, rain and natural conditions can make people stay indoors, and the high pressure on the internet leads to poor connectivity as well, so the human factor is no exception.
