I'll tell you what Alan, you try it and let us know!

 

To me, it sounds like pseudo-science, but I'm willing to be convinced.

It's the free electrons which allow the signal to be transmitted, so these are necessary.

Filling the fourth electron ring in a copper atom would make it unstable, and it would immediately revert back to the way it was.

If the cable hasn't got fibre optic filaments running along it, then shining a torch at it won't make any difference. 

Even if it has, the photons running along any fire optic filaments won't be energetic enough to have any effect outside that filament.

Wrapping foil round it won't have any effect if the wires in the cable are already shielded.

 

On the relatively slow internet speeds that those of us not on a fibre optic connection have, all you need is a Cat 5 ethernet cable. By all means add extra shielding by wrapping foil round it, but don't expect a speed increase.

 

Please prove me wrong.
