Who We Are
StickyStatic is a well-established review networking and computer review guide site founded in 2009 by a career-long tech support agent with a love for helping people solve their issues. If you’d like, you can read more about the author’s career.
How StickyStatic Was Founded
When the site began in 2009, the founder was a career-long tech support agent for major ISPs such as Comcast, AT&T, and DirecTV. With a long history in internet tech support, networking, and troubleshooting, he started a website to answer some of the most common questions that came in over the phone from end-users to these major internet providers.
Not only to help the customers of these ISPs but also to help co-workers with troubleshooting and research of products. StickyStatic was an internal tool for Tech Support Agents as well as a public site to help users searching for accurate information.
After a long career in Tier II Internet Tech Support Agent position, he went on to work networking in the IT Department of a college in San Francisco, CA, where he not only helped staff and faculty but also students of the university.
We help users with networking solutions, building computers, and other end-user electronic buying decisions.
Our Research Process
Many sites make recommendations based on online research. Here at StickyStatic, we do real hands-on testing and apply our 20+ years of networking knowledge to determine what modems and routers are actually best for our readers. We also have connections and insiders at cable ISPs we have worked for in the past and stay up to date on all new releases and insider issues that only employees would know about.
We recommend products we use and test or have set up for other home networks and even some small office networks we currently support on a paid contract basis. With an extensive background in networking, testing these products is more than just work for us, but is an exciting, fun adventure with each new product we acquire to test for you. We test speeds, compatibility, ease of us, setup, firmware updates, and more. While we do participate in programs such as Amazon Affiliates, this will never affect our decision-making process and we will provide you with accurate results to best help you.
