Data cable installation Melbourne: Make your internet connection faster

Streaming music, TV and movies, working from home, searching online – a huge portion of our daily lives now rely on the internet and being connected.
The internet's constant growth in speed and reach has changed how we live each day, but not all internet connections are created equal. 

You're lucky if you have fibre optic speeds, but more likely, you'll be working with a connection that could be faster and more reliable. Many people don't know how to rectify the problem and are unsure where to turn.

At 181 Electrical, our technicians understand how important it is to have access to a fast network and reliable communication services. That is why we always test your premises before we carry out any work to recommend the service that will best suit each client's needs.

What causes slow internet speeds?

There are many reasons your internet network connection may need improvement. The most common reasons are likely due to the following:

Poor Wifi Signal

Your Wifi signal is the most common cause of a poor internet connection or speed. It can be attributed to a range of factors but is likely caused by:

  • Interference from other devices or equipment sending radio waves.
  • Thick walls or metallic mesh inside walls disrupt the connection in different rooms of your home.
  • Competing signals in a small space. Can be common if you are in a particularly dense office space or residential apartment block.

Damaged Data Cabling in Melbourne

If you have a high-speed connection and it suddenly goes down to less than 5mbps, or even if it's somewhat slower than usual – there is a good chance your internet connections are being slowed down due to a faulty cable that requires repair.

Wrong type of connection port

If you're using data cable that only supports uploading (ie. most phone lines), your internet speeds may be slow because the line is always full of upload requests. The same can happen even if you have an excellent line, but it was installed with the wrong type of connection port (most likely a DSL port).

But there is a solution!

What is data cabling?

Data cabling is a term used to describe the connection and running of cables from your internet to a device.

It's exactly what it sounds like – how your internet data gets from point A to point B. When you open a browser and load a website, that information has to get from the server to your computer somehow.

Having ethernet and data cabling in Melbourne wired throughout your house (as many ports as you require) makes it possible to plug your devices directly into the internet (rather than relying on unstable wifi signals).

If your internet signals are slow due to faulty lines, your connection speed will suffer. When it gets bottlenecked by the wrong cable, you'll experience latency problems and slow downloads.

Ethernet is wired throughout your house (as many ports as you require) so you can plug your devices directly into the internet.

What are the benefits of data cable installation?

There are many benefits to custom installation of data cabling in your Melbourne home or office.

The most obvious is that you will have a strong, reliable connection to handle your online needs without problems. Secondly, using the same cable to power multiple devices simultaneously means you no longer have to worry about managing separate ethernet for each device.

Finally, installation helps to future-proof your network while also making it more efficient and organised. By interconnecting all of your devices with a single wire, you can design the layout of your setup to be as simple or complex as possible. You no longer have to worry about how many ports are available on your router, how far away they are from where you need them, or what device will use each one.

When you have cabling, a lot of these issues disappear. Once plugged in, the internet provided to your device will be fast, consistent and uninterrupted. It can be up to 20 times faster than your average wifi connection.

Furthermore, this installation is ideal for devices such as computers and televisions that take the strain off your wifi network. This means it will function better for devices like mobile phones that can't be wired in.


What are the requirements for data cabling in Melbourne?

Before data cable installation can begin there are several factors that need to be considered. These factors include:

1. Cable management

Anyone who has seen the back of their computer will know what this means. The cables included with data cabling projects should be routed away from any fans or hot spots so they don’t get damaged by overheating.

2. Cable length

The length can vary (3ft to 100ft) and must be long enough to reach the desired port without any extensions. For safety purposes, it's also vital that cables are shorter than the maximum allowed length.

3. Data transfer speeds

Data cabling companies take into consideration transfer speeds for their products. The transfer speeds will determine the gauge of cable required, which, in turn, determines the installation price.

4. Data Points (Ports)

Most cables will come with various ports. These can also be customised with an integrated splitter if you require multiple internet lines to run off one connection point.

All of these factors need to be considered before beginning installations and they should also be clarified with the cabling companies before proceeding.

How do data cables work?

A cable is a wire that carries information between devices. You can think of it as the internet's version of a pipeline – all the information travels through the wire until it reaches the intended destination. It's fast, efficient, and nearly invisible – especially with a high-quality installation in the right places throughout your home or office!

Are there any drawbacks?

One of the few limitations of cabling is that your device must be plugged in and stationary to access consistent, high-speed internet.

Not all portable devices (such as smartphones) can be plugged into the network. However, by using it for items used in one place (such as TVs and home computers), you will take the strain off your wifi network and improve its function for your other devices.
