So, Chris, you're providing a range of internet solutions for me today aren't you?
Yes, Mick, we're going to give you a strong internet connection throughout your house that you can control.
And so you put a couple of data points down there. Why did you do that?
Mick, you said to me you're building a home office here so we put a couple of data connections here so that you can have a direct connection from your PC and from your printer and that way then you've got seamless connectivity.
And of course, the direct connection, does it give me faster speeds?
Yeah, wifi only gives you 54 megabits per second whereas a physical connection can give you 100 to 1000 megabits per second.
That's a big difference, isn't it? Absolutely.
And so you're also going to put in a new wifi system for me.
Yeah, we're going to put a wifi mesh system in. So any dead spots you have in your house will be non-existent.
Which would be great because you get complaints about that.
Is there any other features that I should know about in regard to this particular system?
Yeah, if you have trouble with your kids on their devices all the time, not coming to dinner or breakfast or lunch you can actually go onto the app and pause the internet. Which will obviously stop them from using their devices.
Might use it as a punishment tool. I like that, it's a great feature. I'll let you get it in mate, appreciate you doing that.
