The "pre-wiring" trend is now spreading rapidly to less expensive, more affordable homes.

What is structured wiring? Put simply, it replaces traditional electrical and telephone wiring (the kind thatís been installed in homes for 50 years) with an ultra-modern high-speed, "bigger pipeline" system. Hereís another analogy: Structured wiring is to conventional wiring what super-fast DSL or cable modem Internet access is to a frustratingly slow dial-up modem connection.
