Twenty Times Faster—100% better

Another fine Cellnet installation, this time from Corofin, Co. Clare. The customer has refurbished three buildings to use for AirBNB, offering visitors very nice accommodation. Unfortunately, local connectivity did not match the quality of the cottages, wih their eir fixed-line ADSL only managing a feeble 1Mbps — almost unusable by today’s standards.

When the customer contacted his provider for support and suggestions on how he could improve and expand his broadband coverage they told him that ‘WiFi coverage is not (their) problem’, and suggested if he wanted more WiFi they could provide two additional broadband connections (at full price, naturally) to the other buildings, but it wouldn’t necessarily improve the speed in any of the locations.

At this point, the customer contacted the Cellnet team. Our technicians surveyed the location and designed a bespoke solution that would work well—and economically.

At this point, the customer contacted the Cellnet team. Our technicians surveyed the location and designed a bespoke solution that would work well—and economically.

One wireless broadband connection was provided and then split among the various buildings. Underground ducting was used to provide a discreet and unobtrusive link to the primary dwelling, then WiFi access points were placed in the attics of each building to provide excellent coverage and reduce the possibility of guests’ interference with the equipment. An additional access point was placed on the mast, underneath the main antenna, to conveniently provide outdoor WiFi for guests enjoying breakfast in the garden and for the convenience of the customer who lived nearby.

With the installation completed and fully configured, there is perfect WiFi in each building and apartment, with the average speed around 20Mbps—even when the mobile device is up to 40 metres from the outdoor Wifi base unit! Our customer is delighted: this superior solution meets his needs and those of his guests perfectly, he has unlimited broadband that’s up to 20 times faster than that provided by his previous supplier, with WiFi access conveniently available throughout the property.
