New Cable Installations

As a home owner, you have probably heard and thought a lot about the benefits of a cable network installation. Here at Techfam we pride ourselves on providing those professional phone, TV and computer network installations for Canberra home owners. We maintain the highest levels of industry installation best practice (AS/NZS 3080:2013) to ensure that our networks are reliable and perform at the maximum speed possible. At the same time, as a locally owned company, we are able to keep our prices low and work hard to provide low cost and budget conscious cable installations.

Repairs and Fault Finding

With many years of experience in both domestic and commercial network infrastructure installation and maintenance, along with the latest in quality diagnostic equipment, Techfam is able to have a technician find and repair any network cable related fault.

Cat 5 or Cat 5e Network Cable Installations

The original Cat 5 standard has now been deprecated, leaving only Cat 5e, although the term Cat 5 is still used, meaning that all current references to Cat 5 are in fact referring to Cat 5e. Cat 5e cabling is rated for network speeds up to 100Mb/sec, making it ideal for phone and ADSL cabling requirements. It is now very affordable and should be used in all new telephone and ADSL cable installations as the minimum standard.

Cat 6 or Cat 6a Network Cable Installations

Cat 6 and now Cat 6a offer enhanced performance for data communication, with Cat 6 rated for speeds up to 1Gb/sec and Cat 6a rated up to 10Gb/sec. Whilst Cat 6a is still significantly more expensive, Cat 6 is now very affordable and is the minimum standard used by Techfam for any internal data or NBN network cabling.

Simple Network Cable Installations

Cabling your home for data network communication can be as simple as a single wall plate with a Cat 6 socket running to another single wall plate with a Cat 6 socket in another location. This style of cabling can be extremely cost effective, whilst giving you the same flexibility and functionality as the most advanced network distribution hub. Our technicians can give you connectivity with blistering speed from one end of your home to the other.
