About this deal

I would be looking at the terminations if I was you as even one strand of the braiding touching the inner core will destroy the signal.

The engineer is coming on Wednesday to install so any help before then would be appreciated, failing that I'll just hope I get a knowledgeable and helpful engineer to advise on the options! The wires are shielded with two layers of aluminum foil and thickly braided to protect them from electromagnetic interference. Looking for a low-cost coaxial cable that can be used with various devices and is also lengthy and slim? 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.The result is ingress and egress of signals from their network which can have serious implications even if the world does not explode. Virgin media installer turned up and said he couldn’t use the cable as virgin media now extend fibre optic only inside the house and none of the new equipment works on the old cable either. Consider the distance between the devices you wish to connect before purchasing a cable of that size.

The TV suppliers realised that they could use the same cables to supply internet too and it had the ability to reach high speeds, much higher than cheap, thin copper cables used by phone companies.If you have already installed the conduit, and you already have a VM tech coming, I can't see you would gain much (anything) by installing some third party coax cable which might be to VM's spec's. I get a lot of dropped packets and variable ping times resulting in page loads never completing or a very unreliable internet connection. Most ISPs are moving to fiber to the node, so they have huge bandwidth to the neighborhood hub, then they use coax from there. It will be about 10 meters from where it splits to the cable modem to the set top box is this a problem? I get the feeling I might end up needing to rip off my nice new skirting boards to hide the cabling!

The builder has installed standard coax sockets and cabling (originally intended for digital freeview) that run from that wall to the loft. Given, in a ideal world you'd want the installer to measure the signal levels while using the cable you intend to operate the equipment with and adjust those levels accordingly, but given the cable lengths in question, the signal levels are not that likely to be outside the acceptable range even if using different cables. No, Virgin Media has a stand-alone network that delivers broadband and TV content to your home depending on your signed package.A router is an indispensable tool for woodworking projects, whether you’re a hobbyist or a seasoned professional. Because coax cables are such a crucial aspect of your internet and TV connection, you must be cautious while purchasing for them. You can’t fit the Virgin Media wall socket yourself, but after receiving your equipment, you can ask the Virgin Media technician to fit the wall socket for you. In areas known as HFC, which is the majority of VM's network, it is coax cable which can easily still handle multiple gbps in terms of bandwidth.
