So I’ve got a friend of mine who has a farm, he’s got an outbuilding that he’d like to connect to the internet. I paced it out and it’s at least 125m from his house. I think he’s got some farm machinery that needs to connect to the internet and the mobile reception is rubbish, bad enough for phone calls!
I’ve read that CAT cable has a 100m limit before things start getting forgotten or lost, so are there any other alternatives? I’m sure an engineer might be able to boost the signal over a CAT cable, but is fibre even a possibility or just ridiculously expensive?
This isn’t something I would do for him, just curious really.
