Electricians can make a single, straightforward change that can increase internet speed and reliability for their residential customers, without any extra labour.
Delivering your customers, a real-world advantage
A reliable and quality internet connection has become parament for many homeowners lives and work. Many customers are paying for high-speed internet yet are not able to maximise their return on investment due to the quality of the cabling being installed. The electrical plans also do not allow for easy and practical access to cabled internet, meaning having to rely on WiFi speeds and its connection limitations.
With the pressures of modern Kiwi living, there are often large loads and demands put on home WiFi networks due to content streaming, gaming, busy home offices with regular video calls. This pressure can then lead to issues with internet speed, reliability, and security for many New Zealand homes.
Better than WiFi
Most New Zealand homes use a high-speed broadband or fibre optic internet connection linked to a WiFi router that spreads the signal throughout the house via radio waves. Connection quality and speed can vary depending on location in the house, the number of devices trying to access the WiFi, and the amount of data being downloaded or uploaded.
WiFi is also susceptible to interference from the radio signals of other electronic devices, which can cause inconsistent connections, as well as security issues as its radio waves can be intercepted or “eavesdropped”.
The solution for these issues is quality network cabling like Actassi, which allows devices to plug directly into network connection points throughout the home for fast and reliable internet. The cabling sits inside the wall cavities so is ideal for installation during new builds or renovations.
Cabled connections can help customers avoid “fighting” for the quality internet connection with other users in their home, essentially creating a prioritisation over WiFi users.
Make a big difference
Selecting a quality cabling solution to install can solve these problems, make the home more suitable to your clients’ needs, and help them to get the maximum speed possible from their connection. In addition to this, planning practical locations for wired connections and understanding your customers internet requirements for work and play is critical.
Recommending Actassi from Schneider Electric to your customers is an easy change that can provide homes with a high speed, secure and dependable internet connection. Actassi’s greater speed and reliability is the real advantage. It can deliver up to 10 x the speed of a WiFi connection, making it particularly effective for high demand households and home offices.
High speed fibre internet in New Zealand currently delivers around 950Mbps (just under 1 gigabit) from the street, but this speed can drop once it is linked to a WiFi network and the signal needs to travel throughout a home. There are also parts of homes where the WiFi network might struggle to reach to or have a very weak signal causing frustration for your customers.
Actassi’s cabling system brings either 1 gigabit per second (Category 6) or 10 gigabit per second (Category 6A) capability right into the rooms of a house.
Its quality components – from the jacks to the cabling and jacketing itself – deliver greater performance and reliability and ensure a quality internet connection at every point. Actassi also pairs with the PDL Iconic range of switches, power points and sockets for a streamlined and stylish finish to a client’s interior décor.
