Warning that Christmas fairy lights can slow your Wi-Fi

 

If you’re looking for an excuse to get out of decorating your house this Christmas, here’s one your family will TOTALLY accept. They might even THANK you for your laziness.

Your Christmas lights could screw up your Wi-Fi.

A British tech company studied how Christmas lights affect your Wi-Fi, and found that the electromagnetic interference from the lights might slow it DOWN. So if your Netflix gets choppy, maybe it’s your decorations.

They also might NOT, since there are a ton of factors at play . . . but they MIGHT. And is there ANY possibility that’s more frightening?

They say things like baby monitors and microwaves can also mess up your Internet speed. So, um . . . I guess let your baby fend for itself and stop eating Hot Pockets?
