I live in an area with very poor broadband. Fixed line 1 mbs

Customer Question

Hi,
I live in an area with very poor broadband. Fixed line 1 mbs and recently added satellite which can vary from 3 to 25 mbs.
The satellite router is upstairs on one side of the house and it is connected to 3 SONOS Play 1's and a beam downstairs in a conservatory at the other side of the house - there is a total distance of approx. 40 feet between them.
I am constantly losing the connection to spotify, and then in turn to the speakers so music is constantly stopping or not loading. Is there a solution you can suggest to resolve this? I am thinking of taking one of the play 1's and connect by ethernet to the router (but don't want to do this as I lose a speaker in the conservatory) or is there a good booster / extender that would solve the issue?
