|I want to upgrade my cable tv systems to broadband, and I dont know where to start|
Answer by Dmitri Abaimov posted 25 Apr 2007
Assuming by broadband you mean broadband Internet i.e. cable modem.
Well, a good place to start would be to look at your cables and eliminate unnecessary splitters on the way to the cable modem. In fact, depending on your NID (Network Interface Device) location you may be able to get your cable company to pull a separate cable for your TVs at no extra charge. In this case no splitters are going to be needed on the cable modem cable.
Additional steps might be to make sure that all your cables are RG6 grade and all your splitters and connectors are certified for 1GHz or higher frequency.
