Discover the speed and security advantages of an ethernet home network compared to wifi
Wi-Fi is a popular choice amongst most homes today, however few experience a steady and reliable connection.

Wireless isn’t secure, whereas a wired solution is. Today enterprise networks such as universities are predominantly wired for security and reliability reasons.

Ethernet on the other hand, is the most secure and is still used today because it works so well. You can’t intercept the data, you have extremely fast speeds and it’s cheap to run, install and maintain.
