New Internet & Satellite Infrastructure

Due to a thorough renovation of my home built in 1930 (including a new modern central heating system and also new power, water and gas pipes) all floors in my home had to be lifted. This was a great opportunity to create a 'state of the art' ICT infrastructure in my old home, including new satellite (DVB-S) and CAT-6 ethernet wiring under the floor.

It was not an easy task but with a lot of help from my local fitter / electrician Besteman & Zn gigabit ethernet and satellite connections are now everywhere available in my home with neat wall sockets.
