BT Business 4G Assure - Can I extend this through cat5?

Can I extend the 4G assure through cat5/6 wiring? as I am unable to receive a signal next to my master socket connected directly to the Business Hub 5. As far as I am aware I have a few options such as placing the router and 4G assure next to a window and running DSL through cat6 wiring to the router. Or connect the 4G assure through cat6 wiring itself and place just the dongle next to the window so I can have my BH5 located in the server room.
Any help would be appreciated, but I suspect the cat6 run of about 40m is too long for the usb signal to work with.

Hi Ethan


Hope you are well! That sounds like it could be too long, but on principle it still might work. Because this is a new product we have a specialist team who would deal with any technical queries in regards to the 4G Assure. I would recommend giving them a call - their direct number is 0800 678 1016.


They can certainly look into this for you to help you make the most of your 4G service!
