As being able consistently online becomes more and more necessary for any business, so does the need for troubleshooting. Internet infrastructure is evolving and improving upon older technologies. In a report by the FCC, they state that the average speed of Internet has gone up by a little more than 300% from 2011 to 2014. Modern businesses and consumers alike have a much larger demand for constant high speeds and infrastructure. Because of this, finding the right company that is up to date on wire installations as well as business internet structure is key in today’s competitive environment. That is why Phone Link Fl., has been providing data networking solutions in the Lakeland area for over a decade. Your business productivity should not have to suffer from issues relating to slow speeds or outages. Losing internet access can halt dealings and complicate the flow of work throughout the office.
Possible Network Issues
One of the biggest problems with connectivity issues is that it may not have a simple fix. Many people have had network problems before only to call their internet provider and have their modem reset. While this is great if the issue lies in software and update, it does not fix possible physical problems. Construction in Lakeland and throughout Tampa seems never to stop, and lines can be cut or decay naturally. Also, underground lines can be incorrectly installed leading to connectivity problems. The employees at Phone Link are professionals at data networking solutions in addition to physical and virtual infrastructure. Some of the major possible issues that come from damage and deterioration include:
- Faulty Internet Service Provider Line
- Damage to underground cables
- Faulty telephone wiring
- Corroded sockets

A data networking solutions company will be able to determine which cables are right for you as well as properly installing them. Your Lakeland business should not have to suffer from slow speeds or faulty wiring. Category 5e cables are the successors to Cat 5. With Cat 5e, users can reach potential speeds of upwards to 1000 Gbit/s by having simultaneous functioning pairs. 5e is in improvement from Cat 5 in that it is faster and reduces crosstalk, also known as interference.
