I have a cable TV and Internet connection which have been suffering from low SNR (Signal-to-Noise Ratio) since late April. I've contacted my provider regarding this problem several times to get it sorted out to no avail.
So now I'm thinking about getting a signal booster to crank up the SNR, especially for the Internet link which suffers the most (higher than normal latency, frequent time-outs). But, due to my lack of knowledge about the ins and outs of cable network, I'm not sure whether this alone will actually be enough. My questions are:
- Will a signal booster be the answer to my problem? Why or why not?
- Is there anything else I can or should look into to improve signal quality?
