Increasing network speed with quality cablingThe world today is one that waits for no one! Everything is expected fast, and fast is what you must become to keep up.

The speed of a business’ network is in direct correlation to the productivity and efficiency of the workload completed.

Time is money and when most companies base their foundations on internet services – network is also money! All businesses should be looking at increasing network speed.

What can slow networks do to your business?

  • Increase coffee breaks while employees wait for their computers to load
  • Reduce the number of users that can be active at one time
  • Minimise your availability of WIFI network throughout your work place
  • Increase down time between users switching and opening programs – it all adds up!


What can be causing my slow network?

  • Old cabling that is out of date for the software you would like to run
  • Incorrect patch leads on your fibre links (yes it can be that simple to fix)
  • Faults on your data cabling
  • Network hardware
  • Worn or damaged data patch leads squashed into your data cabinet
