    In-Home cabling optimisation for NBN, ADSL,VDSL

    Improving in-home cabling can dramatically increase your NBN FTTN/FTTC speed

    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.


    The Big Question ?

    Will cleaning up my in-home cabling increase my speed?

    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.

    Fault Testing and Cabling Process.

    The first step to having your issue resolved is to contact us either by calling our office on 1300 132 365. Our staff will advise you of the best course of action to resolve your issue. You can also send us an email detailing your issues and your preferred day and time for a technician callout. We will reply to you normally within 24 hrs..


    First Contact

    Once we have established what your cabling requirements are we will book a suitable time for a technician to attend. If you email us then a member of our staff will either schedule a time via return email or telephone if you have provided your contact number


    Technician Attendance

    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.


    Work Process

    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.

    ADSL - VDSL - network - cabling and fault location

    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 makes it 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 specialized 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’s minimum specifications, we can report these findings directly to the customers 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 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. .

    We Specialize in Fault Location for DSL Services

    The video clip on the right shows a typical callout where the service provider had sent us a fault ticket to investigate low ADSL sync rate. On this occasion we identified several issues on the customer side of the network boundary which was the Main Distribution Frame (MDF) in this case.
    After resolving the internal issues the sync rate increased from 2mbps to 17mbps. Time on site was around 30 min. We have attended thousands of faults just like this one over the years that we have been in operation and in the majority of cases we can either resolve the issue on the spot or locate the cause if the fault is external to the customer property.

    Creative Network design and build

    Every network is unique and requires a design that suits the customer's requirements. We conduct a complete and comprehensive site survey before commencing any work. Rest assured that the network that we install will be the best suited to your needs.


    We provide an extensive range of services related to all types of broadband and communication services.

    A to B MDF connections

    If you live in an apartment building and have ordered a broadband service you may need a private technician to attend to connect your apartment to the incoming line at the building Main Distribution frame. A - B Jumpering. Connect your Internet connection at the building MDF. Includes the call-out charge, as well as the first 30 minutes on site. This is normally ample time to complete the connection. We don't just connect your service and hope it works like other companies do... We use ADSL/VDSL specific test equipment to ensure you have the optimum connection available.

    ADSL VDSL fault location

    If you have slow internet speeds or loss of connectivity then you may have an issue with either your internal house wiring or there may be an issue on the carrier cable. We can quickly test your service to identify the cause of your issues.

    NBN Cabling

    If you have or are getting NBN connected, then you may need additional cabling. If the NBN equipment is not installed in a convenient location, we can install additional cabling to distribute the NBN to a convenient location or multiple locations.

    NBN and your telephone

    If you have had NBN connected then you will most likely find that your telephone sockets no longer work. If this is the case, we can reinstate your existing telephone sockets by patching your new NBN service to your existing telephone cabling.
