Who do you call when you need a data outlet? Jim’s Antennas of course!

But firstly, why would you need a data point? Can’t I just use WiFi? Well, many people are now not only involved in online gaming but are now moving to video streaming and downloading to watch movies rather than going to the video shop to rent movies. This can be a great way to have access to a huge variety of movies and save time, but can also introduce new issues. Problems can include poor WiFi connections which can cause drop outs and freezing. A hard-wired internet connection does away with these problems and ensures a trouble free link to either your computer or the internet.

Another reason to install Ethernet cables and connections is to future proof for the NBN and fibre optic connections which have the ability to provide internet services faster than we have ever seen. The main reason to choose between WiFi and Ethernet connections is the latency, or lag. This is a real issue in online gaming where milliseconds count. It is also critical when streaming a High Definition movie.

Many factors can cause problems with WiFi connections such as other WiFi networks, steel frame houses and physical distances on houses.

So if you’re a keen gamer and want the very best connection possible or just want to stream a movie without stops call Jim’s Antennas now on 131 546 and let us hook you up. We service Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, North Queensland, Adelaide, Sydney, Illawarra, Newcastle, Perth, Melbourne, Ballarat, Bendigo, Echuca, Shepparton and just about everywhere in between.
