10M White Coax Cable For Virgin Media, Sky TV, Broadband Extension and Tivo & Superhub (10M, WHITE)
About this deal
The cable will be buried in your front garden at a shallow depth, so you need to remember the track of the cable when you are gardening. In our area we have RFoG which brings the fibre up to the house but the last 10 meters are coax so the same kit as HFC can be used. A key aspect of this security is the ability to effectively monitor expansive areas, and this is where the significance of top-notch long-distance security cameras comes into play.
I've used that skinny, double barrel sky cable in the past for telly boxes and modems and it seemed to work fine, so I doubt it's got anything to do with cable quality. I had my house refurbished and my electrician extended a virgin media coax cable through the ceiling to the outside of the property ready for equipment installation.
After visiting friends this weekend, they showed their connection and they have fibre running to the house. If you want to use existing cabling, such as HDMI or ethernet (internet) cables, check they're in good condition, with no corrosion on the connectors, or cracks or weakening along the length of the cable. Sky is reliant on Openreach for their packages, which could make Sky susceptible to interruptions should BT ever wish to vary the contract between the companies.
If you’re grappling with wireless signal issues in a space spanning around 2500 sq ft, you’re not alone.The builder has installed standard coax sockets and cabling (originally intended for digital freeview) that run from that wall to the loft. Currently Virgin (and other cable providers) haven't reached that same point with the coax cable, they're currently able to provide 152mbps (that figure was chosen as it is double BT's current top fibre speed of 76mbps) and will be upgrading to 200mbps in the near future however they are already trialling speeds well in excess of that using the same coax cable and improvements in the Docsis 3. I have noticed that the internet connection seems to be worse when the TV box is on (rather than in standby).
