I saw that headline on the Herald webpage yesterday, and thought to myself, how can trees (obviously outside your house) interfere with WiFi? They can't.

 

They can interfere with Wireless Broadband, which IMO is not WiFi.

 

If only the Herald had someone on their staff that could differentiate these things...

 

 

Exactly me too.

I'm not bothered much - what's presented includes an allegedly direct quotation from an expert:

 

"Trees can interfere with wi-fi - but all wireless is not created equal," he says.

 

Apart from that confusion over "Wi-fi", I thought otherwise the article was quite informative and well-written - to a pretty good standard. 

 

Here's some more - the judge used also used the term "wi-fi" - and Keall is still clearly not understanding - by his comment about "use of wi-fi in the broad sense". 

 

 

If you want to be pedantic - reply to the tweet.

Trees are causing ' Interference ' I suggest they look up what ' Interference  ' means in Radio terms

 

So now we have transmitting trees wiping out radio signals causing High I levels?

Bloody hell! Was that in your neighbor's garden? cool I'd maybe opt for a pole or tower to solve an 'interference' problem.

So this one circled back to me... i pulled the numbers on issues that have been related possibly to trees on spark 4G Wireless broadband.

 

 

 

came out to be 0.4% of all faults logged with the callcentre.

 

That's an extremely rough number, and i could argue atleast half of even those cases aren't actually tree issues.

 

If you ask me that's pretty marginal. in many of these situations an alternative connection or fibre was provided too to ensure a quality experience.

 

 

 

the likes of @coffeebaron probably has a higher ratio of tree related issues given he's often doing rural installations.
