Recently, a previous Mt Eden customer was looking for an electrician and gave us a ring. The constant covid-19 lockdowns in Auckland had left this customer working from home more often than not. Furthermore, their Wi-Fi signal was not sufficient to reach their home office. So we were called to install an ethernet wall socket.

What is an ethernet wall socket?

Ethernet is the internet cable that connects directly from your internet modem to your computer or smart TV. Some advantages of a wired connection include:


  • – Faster internet speeds, up to 10gb/s with some cables
  • – More secure than Wi-Fi
  • – Consistent connection, as Wi-Fi is susceptible to interference


On top of these benefits, an ethernet connection can go a longer distance than Wi-Fi. Because of these reasons, this Mt Eden customer decided to install an ethernet socket in their office.

To install an ethernet wall socket an ethernet cable needs to be run through the walls from the modem to the location of the new socket. Halfway through the job, the Mt Eden customer asked to install an additional socket behind their TV. We were happy to accommodate this request and installed an additional socket.


Overall, the Mt Eden customer was extremely happy they had called Hall Electrical to be their electrician. Now they were able to do their work without having to deal with bad Wi-Fi.
