  1. What type of equipment does Fizz use?

    Fizz uses an all-in-one Wi-Fi modem that includes a Wi-Fi router.

    This device ensures an exceptional online experience by optimizing Wi-Fi services throughout your residence and on all your devices.

    It is compatible with Wi-Fi 5 802.11a/b/g/n/ac standards for Wi-Fi connectivity. It is not compatible, however, with Wi-Fi 6: 802.11ax. 


    The benefits of using a Fizz Wi-Fi modem include:

    • An all-in-one modem and router
    • Powerful dual band support
    • Secure wireless connectivity
    • An easy configuration interface
    • Works in conjunction with the Fizz Wi-Fi app so you can optimize your Wi-Fi network, as well as diagnose, if need be, any glitch that presents itself. 


    Technical specifications for the Fizz CODA-4680:

    Wi-Fi 2.4 GHz : 802.11n dual band 3x3 
    Wi-Fi 5 GHz : 802.11ac Wave 2 MU-MIMO 4x4

  1. 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi band steering

    Wi-Fi band steering is a technology used to deploy dual Wi-Fi bands that allow compatible devices to primarily use the more powerful and less problematic 5 GHz band.

    With the band steering function, only one Wi-Fi network name will be displayed. Each compatible device will automatically connect to its optimal frequency (2.4GHz or 5 GHz) to make the user experience seamless.


    Modifying this option is possible thanks to the Fizz Wi-Fi app:
    1. Choose ''My Wi-Fi''
    2. Go to the settings (gear wheel icon) 
    3. Activate/Deactivate the Band steering option 


    The Fizz Wi-Fi app is available for free on: 


    The Fizz Wi-Fi app is available free of charge in the Apple Store and Google Play Store.

  1. Automatic Wi-Fi channel optimization

    Both Wi-Fi frequency bands (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) offer a range of channels to optimize the quality of your Wi-Fi connection.

    The Fizz Wi-Fi modem has an optimization feature, allowing it to automatically select the best channel for each connected device, based on the needs at that time.


    The automatic Wi-Fi channel optimization  is enabled by default on all Fizz Wi-Fi modems to ensure state-of-the-art service.
