These connectors will slow your broadband speeds by about 30%
Long story short: this item will split down your broadband speeds by about 30%. For more details, read on:my main reason for buying this item was to make the most out of the limited space i have in my apartment, and i thought that this little device would allow me to put my dresser closer to the wall. In that one respect, this device succeeded. However, i question you: is that work split your speed performance by almost a third?! Definitely not.Before installing these, i made sure to test my internet speed before using this connector, and i was easily getting 120 to 125 mbps with comcast internet. After using the connector, i was only getting 80 to 85 mbps. That's a very significant decrease! So i tried a different brand of connector, thinking that maybe the manufacturer was the problem. For the record, i purchased and used both this item as well as the one by mediabridge, which you can find here: mediabridge f-type right angle adapter - gold plated - 90° female to male connector - 5 pack - (part# conn-f81g-ra-5 ). Both items performed equally as bad. And before anyone question, yes, i tried multiples of each. It has nothing to do with the build quality or craftsmanship. This kind of signal degradation just seems to be inherent when using a connector of this type.My suggestion to you: do not buy this connector, or any others like it. In absolutely no circumstance is it worth split your internet speeds by around 30% just to save one inch of space. Just buy some drywall / coaxial staples for $3 a pack, and save some space that way. It won't impede your broadband speeds, and it's easier to do anyway. You've been warned.
