Having a good quality ADSL Cable can make all the difference when it comes to your internet connection speed. Connecting your router to the telephone line, the ADSL cable needs to be without damage and situated in such a way so that it won't be crushed, pulled or split.
If your ADSL cable is old or has suffered some damage (you may not be able to actually see the damage as it can be internal), this is likely to cause issues to your internet connection speed. As such, if you're encountering problems with connectivity, changing the ADSL cable can be a very simple and very cheap solution.
We recently found that our internet connectivity wasn't working as it should (our connection kept dying on us quite regularly), so replaced the ADSL cable with this one, along with the 'ADSL Microfilter
' and 'Telephone Extension Cable
' to hopefully eliminate the problem. Together, the three items only cost a few quid, but the difference replacing them made was incredible.
The ADSL cable itself seems to be of a generally good strong quality, and does the job nicely. It's also of a good length in case you need to locate your desktop some distance away from your router (the cable is 5m in length).
So our advice is, if you think you should be getting a better internet speed or are suffering problems with connecting or staying on the internet - then you might want to try replacing the ADSL cable and Microfilter etc. It could make all the difference!
