Help re fibre optic broadband
Posted on 2013-01-24
I am seeking some advice on fibre optic broadband. Nothing technical just opinion.
At the moment I am using normal broadband but considering upgrading to fibre. I have spoken to two different ISPs and both confirmed that fibre broadband has to run from the MASTER telephone socket, not just an extension socket.
My concern is that the MASTER socket is nowhere near where my computer. Although they can run a cable from the Master socket to where I want (up to 30m) but I am reluctant to have cables across rooms (my OCD!!!) so only alternative is to go wireless.
My question is, will going wireless seriously deteriorate performance? I mean if my PC is wired to router you get 1Gb connection but to go wireless you probably get less than 100mb? is that correct? Obviously it depends on distance between PC and router but I believe a range extender will help too?
Thanks in advance for your opinion.
