Are you tired of slow internet connection? Do you find yourself struggling with weak Wi-Fi signals or powerline adapters? You’re not alone. Many people face similar issues, especially those living in rental properties that haven’t been renovated in decades. Unfortunately, most landlords aren’t keen on investing in network installations, leaving tenants to find their own solutions.
While Wi-Fi mesh sets and powerline adapters are advertised as the perfect solution, they can be expensive and often don’t deliver the promised speed. If your home has solid walls or long power lines, these signals are further weakened, leading to disappointment when you only manage to get 50 to 100 Mbit/s out of a 500 Mbit/s fiber optic connection.
The good news is that there is a simple and affordable way to solve this problem: twisted-pair network cables. By installing network cables and using additional Wi-Fi bases to carry the data to the router, you can significantly improve your internet speed and enjoy a smoother browsing experience on your mobile devices.
But what about those living in rented apartments who don’t want to spend thousands of euros on network installations and renovation? The solution is easier than you might think. With a network cable without a connector, simple RJ45 sockets, plastic patch panels, and cable duct baseboards, you can wire your entire apartment or just two connections quickly and affordably. Installation costs can start at around 140 euros for two rooms and four cans.
