Closing Thoughts

We are very happy with the contractor we chose and with our end results. After several false starts and too many discussions with contractors that didn't have the experience to meet our needs, Newcome was clearly the right choice. The team at Newcome is professional, experienced, knowledgeable and has the creative design "vision" that the other contractors lacked, helping us arrive at an installation that was functional, not to mention a work of art.

Newcome provided us with a design and installation that exceeded our expectations in every way. Newcome has multiple locations throughout the U.S., so if you are interested in discussing an implementation for your home, it is possible for you to contact them for a consultation. We highly recommend Newcome based on our experience with this project.

With the changes in home connectivity options and the huge impact that the Internet has made and will continue to have on our lives, the sky is the limit as far as the growth of home networking is concerned. New devices will continue to improve connectivity and increase functionality. Considering the innovations that have occurred in just the past three years, it is exciting to imagine where the home networking industry may be in another three years. And, as we have demonstrated in this article, a properly planned and installed infrastructure in your home will be able to grow and accommodate new technological advances for some time.

An investment in a quality home network infrastructure is something your family will use and appreciate more and more over time. A properly planned and designed installation can add a level of convenience to your home that allows technology to work for you, making tasks more easily done and providing all the members of your home with capability. Imagine: no more family quarrels over who is hogging the Internet connection or who has the printer tied up with his game cheats when another deserving family member needs to do some research on the Internet and print it NOW. We are network enabled, and we love it.
