No, the technology that you need to get to your front door isn't the same as you require inside your property or house. Fibre optic cable is the equivalent of a 6 Lane tarred highway. It gets your Internet / car to your property but once on your property a nice paved driveway is more than adequate to get your car / Internet to your garage/tv.Just realized everyone taking about Cat6 cables. Don't I need a fibre optic cable to tv as have FTTH?
This makes no sense(Note advice to stick with same brand thanks however I have windows 10 on my desktop computer and I saw that tplink powerline for one is not compatible with this. Desktop plugs directly into Ethernet cable though.)
Becomes an issue @ gigabit fibre...when I research that back in the day I concluded that the 1000mbps powerlines wouldn't be able to keep up with gigabit fibre. (as counter-intuitive as that seems).The op mentions fibre specifically. Does the access medium really matter?
Thanks again guys. It is slow going for a newbie like me, but I'm a good researcher. This OP is actually a woman but indeed I'm excited about having fibre, albeit a dreary 20mbps offering. Thought I'd test this speed first because I can upgrade anytime.
We're going to run a cable to the tv for sure and I did find out that I cant afford a fibre cable So it'll be Cat5 since my husband has some lying around for some bizarre reason. I read that one should install a conduit too so as to upgrade the line when it's needed. Who knows how soon I'll need gigabits coursing through my home's veins!
On the powerline, here is a link to an actual TPlink powerline which shows windows 10 is non compatible, but I accept the point regarding software.
There you go.Which product are you talking about here?
