Internet Speed Increase or a WiFi Range Extender??

Last Modified: 2020-11-30
I would like an expert to help me decide on the proper route to take on the internet speed slowness. I have Verizon FIOS and the speed is only 75 Mbps. I feel it is slow and I do realize there are multiple devices that use the internet bandwidth, Four cell phones to be exact and my Desktop PC. No streaming or anything else that may require the use of the internet speed. So do I need to call Verizon and ask to have the speed increased to something higher , I am not sure what speed I should ask for OR invest in a WIFI Range Extender? Please advise me on what should I do? If what I need is a Range Extender , can you recommend which one would be the best one to go with. Lots of features at a reasonable price.

Thank you.
