BT Infinity Extension question

Hi all,

I wanted the phone moved but the engineer didn't do it but it doesn't matter, if I got a long etherent cable coming from the modem to the home hub would that effect speed? Because I heard the phone cable the ADSL cable effects speed if long but the etherent doesn't is this true?

You are correct, an ethernet extension between the modem and hub can be up to 100m and wont effect the speed. Whereas an extension between the socket and the modem will effect the speed the longer the it gets.

Re: BT Infinity Extension question

that is correct, cat5e ethernet cable can be up to 30 metres long before the speed degrades and the newer cat6a ethernet cable i have heard can go up to 100 metres before speed loss
