Guide to Wired and Wireless Networking
If you've read our guides and are still unsure of the best solution for your situation, call or drop us a line - sometimes it helps to chat with an expert!
We have been helping Australians solve their mobile connectivity issues for over a decade, so we understand what it takes to achieve the best possible performance. That is why we started Telco Electronics, our own line of high performance and easy to use modem routers. While they work great out of the box, they are packed with useful settings and hardware features to optimise your connection too. Pair a Telco Electronics device with one of our Telco antennas for maximum performance. Need advice for picking an antenna, would like firmware customisation, engineering or techincal support? We are based in Brisbane, so just drop us a line, we're happy to help!
Choosing a Modem Router
When choosing a Modem Router, a higher LTE category (e.g. CAT12) means better performance. A CAT6 will usually perform twice as fast as a CAT4 in the same location, and a CAT12 will usually perform twice as fast as a CAT6 at the same location. Choosing a higher category modem also means you can operate more efficiently in areas with poor signal compared to a lower category modem - that is to say a CAT12 or CAT6 can operate on signal so low that it might be unusable on a CAT4.
