Good coverage means that your device is getting a strong WiFi signal. This strong signal will also provide the speed that your device can handle. As you move away from your router, the signal strength decreases, which slows down upload/download speeds and reduces coverage. Placing your router is key to ensuring coverage and speed for your devices.
