How Do We Price our phone line installs?
The many variables to pricing a new phone line
For jobs that don’t fit our standard packages, we use a multifaceted pricing approach. However, when it comes to new phone line installations, the cost primarily hinges on 2 things. How good is the access, and what is the scope? Here are a few things we need to consider when pricing.
- Do you have underfloor and ceiling access?
- Do you require the line on the second or third floor?
- Do you want the line in a garage or a granny flat?
- Are your inside walls brick, concrete, gyprock, or tile?
- Do we need special permission and site inductions?
- Does your office have a tiled or fixed ceiling?
- Do you have a network lead-in cable?
- Do you live in a unit with limited access?
- Are you a factory that needs a line from the MDF?
- Do you need the cable to come in overhead?
Deciphering the price and timeline for installing a new telephone line can be influenced by a variety of elements. A single-level residence with straightforward access to underfloor and ceiling spaces typically translates to a more rapid and cost-effective project. However, if you’re considering a socket installation on a higher floor, anticipate both the complexity and expense to rise. Structural obstacles like concrete barriers in flats or unusual ceiling designs in offices may affect the final estimate. For multi-tenant buildings, it’s crucial to establish whether wall conduits are permitted. Certain jobs might even require special site inductions or training courses. Diverse NBN technologies such as FTTP and HFC come with their own set of installation prerequisites. To get an exact quote, open dialogue with us is crucial.

How The Analogue Phone Line Morphed Into Digital
What Is Your New Phone Line Doing?
When we talk about phone lines today, the landscape has vastly evolved. Gone are the days when analogue signals were sent from your local exchange to a clunky wall-mounted telephone. In today’s digital age, those very same copper cables are responsible for carrying digital signals from a fibre optic node.
The fibre optic technology may extend right up to the outside of your home, or even inside it. In some instances, it may be located further away. Regardless, copper phone lines remain essential for covering that final stretch—be it meters or kilometres—to deliver the signal to your router. This complex interplay between fibre and copper ensures you stay connected in this new digital world.

Just Need a Phone Line and Socket To Connect To NBN?
If you’re among the majority of customers seeking phone line installations, chances are you simply need a cable and socket set up within your home or office. Why? So you can connect your modem or router to the internet, of course. If you’re a no-nonsense individual looking for a straightforward solution, our cable and socket installation package is just what you need. If you’re curious about what this package entails, or if you have different installation needs, feel free to read on.
What Are The Different Technologies Your Phone Line Carries?
As mentioned earlier, it’s no longer just a traditional PSTN analogue phone line from your local Sydney exchange. With the advent of the NBN and what some call the “Great Australian Internet Upgrade,” your voice and internet services now rely on a variety of technologies. These technologies come with their own unique requirements and demand different skill levels for successful connections. To learn more about this evolving landscape, read on.
Fibre To The Node (FTTN)
Fibre To The Node (FTTN) is a broadband delivery technology utilised by the NBN. It employs a mix of fibre-optic cables and existing copper lines to deliver internet to your home. While it may not offer the speeds of a full-fibre connection, proper cabling can optimise your service. Trust experts to install the right cables to get you connected seamlessly.
Fibre To The Curb (FTTC)
Fibre To The Curb (FTTC) is a broadband technology deployed by NBN to bridge the gap between fast, reliable internet and your home. It utilises fibre optic cables to a point near your residence, then connects to your existing copper lines. For seamless, high-speed connectivity, it’s crucial to install the right cabling, which we can expertly handle for you.
Fibre To The Building (FTTB)
Fibre To The Building (FTTB) is a cutting-edge technology deployed by NBN to deliver high-speed internet. It involves running a fibre optic line to the building’s communications room, from where existing copper lines distribute the service to individual units. With the right cables in place, seamless connectivity is just a call away.
Fibre The The Premises (FTTP)
Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) is a high-speed NBN technology that delivers internet directly to your home or business. It uses fibre-optic cables to ensure robust and reliable connectivity. If you’re looking to maximise your internet performance, proper cabling is essential, and we can install the right cables to get you connected.
Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC)
Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC) is one of the technologies utilised by Australia’s National Broadband Network (NBN). It combines fibre optic and coaxial cables to deliver fast and reliable internet. With the right installation of HFC cables, you can enjoy seamless connectivity for all your online activities.
Fixed Wireless is a technology deployed by the National Broadband Network (NBN) to bring high-speed internet to rural and remote areas. Using radio signals from a nearby tower, this technology provides a stable and reliable internet connection. Our team can professionally install the right cables to get you seamlessly connected.
Wide Area Network (WAN)
A Wide Area Network (WAN) connects multiple local area networks (LANs) over large geographical distances. It enables seamless communication and data sharing among offices, factories, and branches in various locations. Utilising the right cabling is crucial for optimal performance; we can expertly install the necessary cables to ensure you’re well-connected.
Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP)
Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) allows you to make voice calls using an internet connection instead of a traditional phone line. This technology converts your voice into digital data packets, which are then transmitted over the web. To ensure seamless and high-quality communication, proper cabling infrastructure is essential, and the right cables can be installed to get you connected effortlessly.
Public Switch Telephone Network (PSTN)
The Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) is an analogue phone system that predates digital and mobile communications. This technology uses circuit-switched telephony between phone sets and exchanges to facilitate voice communication. Though increasingly rare, it persists predominantly in rural Australia. The good news is that the right cabling can still get you connected seamlessly.
What Are The Various Kinds Of Phone Line Installations?
Now that we know various technologies still rely on phone lines to provide you with fast and reliable internet, let’s focus on the installation. The gap between wanting excellent internet and actually enjoying it boils down to how well the installation is done. Ideally, it’s something you should only have to consider once. After the installation is complete, your internet should simply work without requiring further thought. This is precisely what we aim to achieve with our phone line installations.
