Sometimes it is difficult to find a suitable position to locate the antenna such that it gets a clear line of sight to our mast; either because of trees or other obstructions. In such cases it may be necessary to locate the antenna on a pole, building or even tree at some distance from your property.
The maximum length for an Ethernet cable is 100m, which may not be enough to route the cable to an appropriate point (don’t forget vertical up/downs if you are trying to work out distance!).
We have a number of options available for these kinds of situations, but as they are ‘non-standard’, they may incur additional costs; each case is individual, so it’s not really possible to give a generic cost. If you think you have a ‘challenging’ installation, let us know and we’ll come and do a site visit and get you a quote for a custom installation.
If your property is surrounded by trees or does not have a line of sight to a mast or repeater, please contact us for advice, as it is almost always possible to find a solution that will enable you to use our service. In many cases, we will cover the cost of installing additional repeaters if these are required to provide service to a group of properties who all want a service. So if you can get a group of interested people together, it may work out much cheaper.
