Challenges of Installing Boston Metro Ethernet in Older Buildings

The city of Boston is one of the oldest and most historically significant in the United States. It’s where the nation was born, the site of the first battle of the American Revolution and a Puritan stronghold in the early days of North American colonization. Visitors to Boston have an opportunity to see where some of the most famous individuals in history once went about their daily activities. From John Adams to John Kennedy, the citizens of Boston have impacted American ideals and actions for over two hundred years. Some of the buildings in the city have been there the whole time.

One of the problems with an historical city is that people are always reluctant to tear down old buildings. They’ll renovate them, build next to them, and re-route streets around them, but they won’t knock them down. This is great for history enthusiasts and nostalgic old-timers, but for those who install cable and telephone lines it can be an absolute nightmare. Boston Metro Ethernet access is often not available in certain buildings because of a preference to keep the structure original and authentic. That might be nice to look at, but it won’t help you run your business more efficiently.

The business boom in Boston and other older cities around the country happened in the 80’s and 90’s in response to a need for more modern technology, not because the construction industry experienced a windfall or the economy improved. Neither was happening. It was more about supply and demand. The business community needed a supply of modern office space that could handle technology upgrades; contractors and real estate developers responded. The result was a number of new buildings sprinkled across the city landscape, right next to the old buildings no one wanted to destroy.

The difference between east coast and west coast cities is planning. The newer cities on the west coast have panned neighborhoods and sections laid out in blocks. Boston has an alphabetical street neighborhood that makes some sense, but it’s only about one fifth of the downtown area. The rest is streets built upon streets, dead end cul-de-sacs, and a cable and wiring set-up that requires the knowledge of a native to figure out. You can find that native T3 and T1 internet installer right here. Just enter your information and you’ll be connected to someone who can bring you into this century with modern broadband that will work even in those older buildings Bostonians love so much.
