War on Christmas Alert: Christmas Lights Might Be Screwing With Your Wifi


Add another one to Christmas’s long list of crimes: Not only are all those festive lights interfering with your sleep patterns, they’re also possibly fucking with your wifi. Happy holidays—hope you don’t have big Netflix plans!

Or so warns the UK’s telecom regulator Ocfom, according to the Guardian. They’re launching an app to help people test and improve the wifi in their homes and as part of the rollout suggested that:

up to six million homes and offices could improve their broadband connection, saying wireless networks were often not set up correctly or suffered “interference” from electronics including baby monitors, microwave ovens and Christmas lights.

Where will your offenses end, Christmas?
