Wireless or wired Internet:
In metropolitan areas, there are no problems when connecting to the Internet. In country houses and in the country, the choice of companies and offers is limited. Because of the cost and high costs.
not every provider will take the risk of building a network in the private sector. In the review, we will analyze in detail the wired and wireless options from different companies for the cottage.
Network Connectivity Technologies
Home Internet performance often depends on the way the service is delivered to the home. Properly selected technology will ensure uninterrupted and high-quality connection. The modem view over the telephone line is already outdated due to low speed and unstable signal, so we will analyze modern options.
The wire is brought into the house to the distribution equipment. It is easy to connect both gadgets and a phone with cable TV through a fiber optic router. The characteristics of the Internet depend on the material from which the line was made:
Optics. Glass or polymer cable provides high speed with minimal loss. Pulses do not weaken when transmitted over a long distance.
Copper. An electrical signal with information is sent over a twisted pair cable. A metal wire exhibits interference and attenuation of pulses.
Most often, providers bring fiber to the house, and then distribute it to users over copper. On average, the connection speed is 100 Mbps. In megacities, subscribers are offered tariffs with rates of more than 200 Mbps. There is a super-productive gigabit network, but it is very expensive and available only to corporate clients.
The only disadvantage of fiber optic technology is the high cost of connection. It is cheaper for a provider to connect an apartment building than a country house. So that the service provider does not refuse, we recommend dividing the cost of laying the cable between neighbors down the street.
If there is good coverage of cellular operators, then it is better to install wireless Internet in the country. The device contacts the base station and gains access.
The disadvantage of mobile Internet is low speed and unstable signal. When connected to the EDGE standard, the parameters do not exceed 3.6 Mbps. More modern technologies (3G, 4G) can be overclocked to a maximum of 100 Mbps, on average – up to 40 Mbps.
To provide a stable signal, in addition to the modem, you need a MIMO antenna. The device combines several frequency channels into a single broadband band. The equipment helps reduce losses and stabilizes data transmission. The device can be installed even 30 km from the tower.
The technology is suitable for the most remote villages where the mobile network does not catch To connect you will need:
The maximum internet speed does not exceed 45 Mbps. The disadvantages of users include the high cost of equipment. Service providers have promotions that allow you to buy devices in installments or at a reduced price.
