My sister lives in a remote area. The chances of ever getting broadband seem slim. Even living in the middle of nowhere she had been burglarized more than once. She has a security system. I recently put in a phone jack for her and I noticed that the security system had exclusively tapped into the line connection. All the phones had been tapped to the other pair coming from the security. She has been complaining about speed for some time but I really have no way of knowing if it started happening when the SS was installed.
Can this extra connection be the cause of her slow down? Has anyone been able to verify that this happens. I know it "can" be, but is it known to be common?
