Our Past Work

Getting the Fastest Internet Speeds in Your Home

Optimising the internet speed in your home is about a combination of high quality hardware, a strategic setup and, of course, your household internet plan. Here’s some ways you can improve your home’s connection:

  • Upgrade Your Plan: If internet speeds are crucial for your work (or gaming) performance, consider upgrading to a high tier plan. If this isn’t in your budget, or you’ve already done this, keep reading.
  • Upgrade Your NBN Connection: Your household’s connection type has a major impact on your internet speeds. You may be eligible to upgrade your NBN service from Fibre to the Node (FTTN) and Fibre to the Curb (FTTC) to Fibre to the Premises (FFTP) – the fastest and most reliable connection type.
  • Check Your Modem: Upgrading your modem can be a quick way to improve your internet speeds. Even cleaning your modem can make a difference as the dust buildup can cause overheating. This is especially important if you have pets that shed a lot.
  • Check the Position of your Modem: Look for objects that could interfere with your Wi-Fi signal. Avoid placing your modem behind solid walls and objects such as appliances, mirrors, cupboards, etc. If you’re still experiencing poor internet speeds, it might be necessary to add a Wi-Fi extender or mesh device, particularly if your home is larger.
  • Check Your Cables: Using an ethernet cable for fixed devices like televisions, desktop computers and gaming consoles increases both speed and reliability. Check to see if your cables are showing signs of deterioration or simply need upgrading. See if you’ve got the best layout for your home – ethernet cables should be kept free from moisture, avoid touching ceiling tiles, electrical conduits and pipes, and run easily without kinks or bundling.
  • Check Your Devices: Devices running on older protocols may slow down your WiFi by putting additional pressure on your connection. Check if your internet speeds increase when you disconnect older devices and consider upgrading them to optimise your family’s experience.

We’re not just your run-of-the-mill electrician you find online; we are also experienced in IT and familiar with the latest technology. If you’ve tried your hand with other electricians in getting your data and network cabling sorted, but it just hasn’t worked out, we can provide a free onsite consultation for your home to help improve or redesign your network layout. This includes unbiased advice on the best modem, router, cables, etc. for your household and strategies for cable management.

Wired vs Wireless - Choosing the Right Set Up for Your Home

Getting great internet connection is not so much a matter of wired vs wireless but of strategically combining the two to meet your specific needs. Most likely these needs will vary according to the type of space.

Home Office or Gaming Setup

When it comes to spots like your home office or where you do your gaming, wired connections are your go-to. They offer reliability and speed without the risk of dropped signals. In these areas, it’s crucial to manage your cables so they don’t become trip hazards or dust-collectors, so try to plan your layout in advance and employ cable management solutions.

Entertainment Area

Once you’ve chosen your desired devices – TVs, speakers, game consoles, computers or tablets, smartphones and smart home devices – you’ll need to plan out your layout. You’ll probably have an idea of where you want each device, but you’ll also need to consider the location of your power outlets and network ports. For most devices, especially smart TVs, you’ll want a wired connection for speed and reliability – say goodbye to buffering and dropped WiFi signals. Therefore, in some cases, adding or moving power outlets and network ports is the best option, rather than rearranging your ideal room layout. Finally, you’ll need cable management solutions to minimise visual clutter. Keep in mind that GlobileNet can help with each phase, especially adding powerpoints and network outlets, plus the extras like mounting your TV.

Cable Management

With a range of products available, there’s no need to suffer messy cables. First, you’ll want to label your cables. Second, you’ll need to design your cable layout. You’ll want your cables to run along the wall as much as possible – most people use coaxial cable staples to achieve this.

From there it’s a matter of using a combination of products such as:

  • Cable ties – velcro or traditional zip ties
  • Cable sleeves – perfect for joining multiple cables going to the same place
  • Cable runways – plastic covers that attach to your wall and can be painted over
  • Under-desk organisers, cable trays, or even aesthetically-pleasing baskets

Getting the right mix may require some trial and error. Getting a professional consultation at the start could save you significant time and even money from purchasing unsuitable products. Our Globilenet electricians can recommend the right products and placements to keep your cables nice and tidy.

Bedrooms or Lounge Spaces

For more laid-back areas like bedrooms or the living room, wireless is the easy choice. It’s convenient, letting you move freely without the hassle of cables. That way you can stream your favourite shows or call your friends without being tethered to one spot. For rooms that are further away from your modem, consider adding WiFi extenders or mesh devices to improve your connections.

Backyard and Pool

The same goes for outdoor areas – WiFi extenders or mesh devices can get you the coverage you need. Also consider an Outdoor Access Point for a more reliable connection. This option likely requires technical assistance as it needs to be hardwired back to your modem.

Getting this combination of wired and wireless connection points will ensure your home is covered, downloads are easy, and the family is happy. Most Internet Service Providers give you instructions on how to set up your router for you. But sometimes, the instructions aren’t so clear, and the entire setup process becomes a headache. Don’t waste time and save yourself the stress – give GlobileNet a call and we’ll get your internet connection up and running before you can say ‘data and network cabling’.

Pre and Post-Reno Consultations - Getting Your Network Ready to Go

Renovations present both risk and opportunity to your home’s network. Damage to underground cables is your biggest hazard, so it’s important to find out what underneath before you start any digging. It’s also crucial to handle electrical and ethernet cables correctly to avoid harm to yourself or damage to the cables. Keep in mind that only nbn and authorised contractors can work on nbn infrastructure and assets, so you’ll need to check their availability. If you’re not sure whether your renovations will affect nbn equipment, GlobileNet is able to come and check for you.

As part of your renovations, you might take the opportunity to add powerpoints and network ports. You may also want or need to change the location of your nbn box. This will likely require extra time and expense, so it’s important you plan your network layout out carefully before making this move. We’re able to provide a free consultation to advise you on the most strategic placements considering your new home’s layout.

It may be post-renovation that you realise your home’s network is not meeting your connectivity needs. Maybe you’ve extended your home and the WiFi doesn’t reach that far. Perhaps you’ve added a home office and need a reliable connection for meetings, or installed a pool or a shed you’ll want internet coverage for. GlobileNet can provide technical and creative solutions for all these situations. Where possible we’ll adapt or reconfigure your current network and where necessary we’ll make strategic upgrades to optimise your home’s overall internet connection quality and speeds.

Troubleshooting Issues With Your Home Network

If you’re experiencing problems with connectivity and download speeds, there’s a number of possible reasons:

  • Outage: Check with your nbn provider for information about outages in your area. There’s no point restarting everything if the whole neighbourhood is without internet.
  • Device Issues: Restart the device that is struggling to connect or experiencing slow internet speeds. Check if there are background programs or updates running, or even viruses, that are causing delays. Use your device’s troubleshooting feature. Try another device to confirm if the problem is network wide or device specific.
  • Modem or Router Issues: Turn off your modem and router, unplug them from power, and wait a few minutes before reconnecting and turning them back on. While you wait, check your equipment for any physical damage or dust buildup. Update your modem or router’s firmware according to the device instructions. Lastly, check your modem’s location for any interference – move it to a high, unobstructed location if possible.
  • Connection or Cable Issues: Older cables may cause connectivity issues. Upgrading to Cat6 or above will improve your internet speeds. The problem may also come from poor connectors and you may need to inspect the cables both inside and outside your home for any signs of deterioration or damage – it’s best to get a professional to do this.
  • Limited WiFi Range: In some cases, you are simply out of range of your WiFi signal. Try moving closer to the modem. If that improves your connection, then you know you need to look at something like a WiFi extender or mesh device to boost the WiFi signal to further parts of your home.
  • Interference from Other Users: In high-density areas you may experience interference from other people using the same frequency channels. Check your router’s user guide for channel control options.

With IT expertise, Globilenet electricians are able to test and diagnose the causes of your network issues. From there, we’ll get to work minimising interference, upgrading your hardware, optimising your router, or whatever else it takes to restore – and improve – your home’s network connection.


  • Do you have experience in switching homes to NBN?
    Yes, we’ve helped households all across the Hills district switch to NBN.

    We’re familiar with the common difficulties that can arise during the process, and we’re experienced in communicating with NBN support staff, internet providers, and other parties.
  • How long will it take to make the switch to NBN?
    It can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks to make the switch. The exact time frame depends on:
    • Your chosen NBN service provider, how soon you can get an installation appointment and how quickly they activate your service post-installation
    • Your home’s existing setup and whether an NBN technician needs to install additional equipment
    • Your other services such as phone or TV lines and the time it takes to migrate them to the NBN
  • I heard that you can combine your internet line with your phone line and your tv line and it’s all very confusing. Can you help me with understanding what I can do with my home’s data and network set up?
    Yes, absolutely. Even though we are electricians, with our 30+ years of experience, we also bring a wealth of telecoms expertise in setting up data and network systems to meet customers' needs so that they enjoy optimal connection speeds.

    Choosing a service provider is an first important step. Let us recommend the most suitable service providers for your home based on our experiences working with various companies and our knowledge of their service, pricing, and availability in your area.

    We can also help you:
    • Clarify your family’s connectivity needs and preferences - Which rooms need ethernet and TV cables? What about for future use?
    • Assess your current setup, identifying and replacing any outdated wiring or cabling
    • Design a home network set-up for ideal Wi-Fi connectivity, including optimum placement of modems, routers and extenders
    • Integrate your Smart Home devices
    • Troubleshooting connectivity problems
  • I need the fastest internet speeds. What are my options?
    Your home will get the fastest internet speeds with fibre optic cabling. There are a number of options, and their availability depends on your location and property.

    Fibre to the Node (FTTN) and Fibre to the Building (FTTB) are the most common NBN connection types. These, whilst reliable, do not have access to NBN Home Ultrafast.

    Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) and Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC) are the two fastest options, with access to NBN Home Ultrafast.
  • Can you connect my home entertainment system with my wifi network and smart home system?
    Yes, definitely. Let us help you get it all connected, troubleshoot any issues, and walk you through using your systems to enjoy their full functionality.
  • My TV signal cuts in and out and I think it’s because of the old cables. Do you also provide cable repair services?
    Absolutely, we’re here “for all things cable”. We’ll inspect, repair and, if necessary, replace any TV cables that are causing problems.
  • I have a home office set up already, but the cables are all over the place. I don’t need to install any new wires, just need them organised. Can you help?
    Of course, we have a number of cable management systems we can set up to make your office feel clean, organised, and ready for a distraction-free day’s work.

    We pride ourselves on our practical and design experience. We’ll assess your current set up, discuss how you use various devices throughout the day, and organise your cables in a way that optimises functionality and eliminates mess.
