Writer, Broadband Content
Taylor is a veteran member of the Allconnect content team and has spearheaded a number of projects, including a data piece on the top fiber cities in the U.S. and a troubleshooting guide on how to connect your phone to a VPN. In Taylor's Words: I've been writing about consumer goods for over five years and have worked on the technology and electronics beats during my time with Allconnect. My focus on consumer-oriented products has strengthened my research and reviewing skills when writing about the best deals and product selections. This has been integral to my approach to articles that cover a gamut of products —including smart home devices, internet routers and headphones — and topics, from home Wi-Fi optimization to breaking broadband news. In my downtime, you can find me bingeing the latest Netflix original with my doodle fur baby, planning my next cruise or analyzing someone's birth chart.
