Broadband Problems? We are here to help...
Had NBN connected? You might need our qualified data cablers to ramp up your in-home cabling to maximise your speed. If you have more than one telephone outlet connected to your FTTN/FTTC NBN service, then chances are you are not getting the optimum speed. In most cases we can optimise your service in under one hour.
From a single network link to a complete home/office fitout...
The best time to start the installation of a structured cabling system in a residential building is in the framing stage. Pre-wiring your home is considerably less expensive than installing a cabling system on a completed home. If you are building and considering a structured cabling system then you can email us your requirements or plans. We will contact you to further discuss your needs.

The cabling in your premises is vitally important to your set-up if you want to get the most out of your internet connection.
In many cases, the cabling inside your premises is just as important to the speed you experience as the cabling outside. If your premises has evidence of older phone installations it may be worth having your home assessed by an eTechs technician.
The quality of the cabling inside your home can contribute to the speeds you will experience. Wiring your home is an important consideration when you're moving to the national broadband network (NBN). Upgrading your home's cables and wires to handle technology often gets overlooked, but it is very important if you want to have a network that delivers the NBN internet services you want, where you want them. Cabling is just as important for creating the best wireless network at home too.
NBN FTTN and FTTC are new technologies to Australia but already the evidence is overwhelming in that an estimated 95% of our callouts to clean up and test internal cabling has resulted in significant speed increases and a more stable connection. In a typical two story house with 4-5 sockets, you could expect an increase in the sync rate once we clean up and remove unused cabling from the service.
A typical speed increase from this type of cable setup are upward of 20mbps. We have seen sync rate increase from 25mbps to 90mbps on some work we have done.

Fibre to the Node and Curb is not as forgiving as ADSL.
Even if you’re internal cabling is in good condition and you have two or more sockets connected to the service, they will impact the speed. eTechs have been testing and repairing DSL services since the inception of ADSL over 15 years ago. The knowledge and experience we have gained throughout the years allows us to quickly identify and repair issues that are affecting your service.

On the day of the technician attendance the technician will send you an SMS to inform you when they are on their way. Callouts are generally booked with a two hour arrival time frame.
The attending technician will perform the required cabling in compliance with Australian standards. If the work involves a broadband fault or speed issue the technician will test the external NBN/Telstra line for any faults which may affect the service. Any internal faults can be rectified by the technician on the day.
After all work has been completed the technician will issue you with an invoice detailing all work carried out. If the testing of the carrier’s network located any faults then a detailed report based on the test data will be emailed to the customer to forward on to their service provider for further investigation.
Unlike most other technicians, we carry extensive test equipment which allows us to test on a basic level and also level 2 testing on the spot. Most technicians are only capable of basic level 1 testing which if found to be inconclusive, requires a second level 2 technician to attend for more advanced testing. We test on level 2 as our standard level of testing which includes copper testing of the Telstra line and internal cabling. Exchange end testing is also available if requested by the customers ISP.
We know what makes broadband work and what causes it to not work. With thousands of faults found throughout our many years of working in the communications industry, there is nothing that we haven’t come across before. We can quickly identify what the cause of your issue is. With our vast experience and the use of specialised test equipment, we can usually locate the cause of your fault within 20minutes.
Our standard level of testing includes:
TDR Test (Time-Domain Reflectometer) Background Noise Interference DSL line sync rates at various points Resistance Capacitance Loop Balance Impulse Noise Load Coil Detection DSL line sync rates at various points
For faults found to be outside of Telstra/NBN minimum specifications, we can report these findings directly to the customer's service provider, or provide the customer with a report to pass onto their provider. We have developed a system of fault reporting which is designed to clearly relay the test results to the service provider for further investigation by a Telstra/NBN technician.
Faults found on the customer side of the network boundary can be resolved on the spot, as technicians carry a range of cable and socket types to cater for almost any situation. .
