Get a fast, stable wired internet connection in different rooms of your home
Devices connected with a physical network cable receive data faster than those using wifi. We can help ensure your devices get a fast and stable connection by installing network points where they are needed. We can advise on the correct grade of cable for your needs and can install Cat 5, 6, 7 & 8 cables depending on your needs.
What grade of cable is right for my needs?
We recommend that as a minimum standard, Cat 5e cables are installed to get a stable connection throughout your property. As internet speeds are improving we can also install higher grades of cable including shielded versions to prevent interference over the length of the cable. Cat 5e cables can support up to 100mb/s. Seeing as most internet providers in the UK are providing up to 75mb/s connections at present, Cat5e should be adequate for a number of years to come.
Please ask us if you would like Cat 6, Cat 6a, Cat 7 or Cat 8 cabling. Cat 6 and above can support speeds of up to 1,000 mb/s – assuming the router is capable of receiving and transmitting at these speeds and the devices they are connected to are capable of receiving data at these speeds. Cat 7 can support speeds of up to 10,000mb/s. Cat 8 can support speeds of up to 40,000 mb/s and is currently recommended for data centres rather than residential properties.
