Is it worth having in an apartment ?

From what I have seen, there is a telephone wiring room usually in the basement.
Also since there is no ETP, where would you put the splitter.

Probably guessing a large box that sticks out of the wall.

Cheers

If there's only one phone jack in each apartment, and no monitored security alarm, then probably no point.

You could easily hide the splitter in a flush box behind one of the phone jacks if you did go down that route though

How many jackpoints in your apartment?

The typical setup for most semi large MUDs is a MDF in the basement and then a MDF for each floor with a 25pr feeder to the basement MDF, or covering several floors once again with a 25pr or 50pr feeder.

A master filter would only go in your apartment, but once again it depends how the apartment is wired.

Most apartment buildings in hawkes bay have a cat5 cable coming in behind a primary socket, and then it is daisy chained with parallel wiring off to secondary sockets.

The master filter would easily sit inside the wall behind the master socket, and a secondary pair on the cat5 can be used for the DSL feed to the secondary socket, where another socket is installed next to it with the dsl pair connected.

However for most people as said - no point really.

Hey guys,

2 Jack points in the apartment. One where the main wire comes in , then gets daisy chained to another jack point in the other room. Currently syncing at 6mbps downstream with an attenuation of 20.
