We certainly hope so!

If anything Blockade should greatly improve network performance since as high as 20% of internet interactions and traffic contain Blocked Queries (unwanted traffic). Once Blockade is in place, you should see an improved network.  You'll be surprised how "alive" and "chatty" all of your devices (down to your smart tvs and refrigerators) really are. Take a peak at your Query History page and hit refresh to listen in ;).

If you are experiencing any network slow downs or delays when accessing websites through your LAN based or WI-FI connected devices, please check your Blocked Queries. Look for any current blocked domain history that you may want to add to your Exceptions list and allow.
