NBN Installation Structured Cabling
For those living or working in the Sunshine Coast, the speed of your internet connection will depend on the cabling NBN installation that has recently been accomplished. There are several factors that go into how fast and reliable your connection to the structured cabling will be. These factors include the following.
- Router or Modem
- Length of Cable
How far away your residence or business is from the NBN optical fibre node which connects to the older copper lines will help determine the speed of your internet. There is little you can do about this unless you move your residence or business.
The quality of the phone cabling inside your building is the next factor. The better the quality, the faster the internet. However, the more sockets are present, the slower the internet as it must split its signal. You can remove the excess sockets to increase speed.
The type of router or modem you use will have an effect as well. The better its quality, the faster it can pass the signal. And finally, the length of cable used to connect the modem or router to the wall socket will also have an effect. The longer and poorer quality the cable, the slower the internet speed will be.
How to Improve the Quality of the NBN Connection on the Sunshine Coast
Apart from moving next to the NBN optical node connection, there are a few steps you can take to improve the overall quality and speed of the internet to your location on the Sunshine Cost.
Remove Unnecessary Sockets:
Many homes and businesses have multiple sockets, many of which have no use thanks to the rise of the cellular telephone. You can have them removed so that the internet travels to just one location and does not split its signal.
Use High Quality Cabling:
To connect from the socket to the modem or router, use the best cabling and make sure it’s a short run. A router or modem with wireless capabilities will allow others to connect, although that will slow down the speed of the internet.
Choose the Best Modem or Router:
This will depend on whether the internet service allows you to choose the modem or router. Some will not and you will be stuck with what they have to offer. However, if you do get to choose, then you will need to do the following.
- Modem with Broadcom Chipset: Works better with copper lines
- D-Link DSL-2888A: Excellent router with fast internet speeds
The 2888A series has proven to be an excellent value, offering internet speeds that match or surpass more expensive modems and routers while handling multiple connections. Ideal for the telephone systems and the computer network in your office.
The structured cabling used to carry the internet to your residence or business is something that you cannot control. However, given the high quality of the cabling NBN installation in the Sunshine, there are steps you can take to improve internet speed and quality within your own building. Removing unnecessary sockets, using a higher quality cable, and the right modem or router can go a long way towards maximizing the quality of the internet you receive for your computer network.
