Just completed a very large residential installation that comprised of re-installing and adding to the sky set-up, giving them a larger bandwidth, and spreading their wireless connection around a very large house.
The sky cables were originally buried directly in to the ground to get to various points around the home, without any protective conduit/copex. Needless to say, the cables had deteriorated (over 6 years) to a state of ill repair.
When putting the new cables down (over 400 meters in all), I used direct to bury RG6, and a protective conduit to help it's longevity.
When the cables were down and we had good signal, it was time to add 2 new Sky+ HD boxes.
Tooway Satellite Broadband (this installation showed 20.28 Mbps upon test) was installed to take the strain of video streaming, downloads, anytime+ and general browsing, whilst the BT is now used for gaming (due to the lower ping).
All in all, yes it was a LOT of work, but I am glad that Ashford Vision could carry it through to completion, and hopefully there will be less arguments at the customer's home!
