What does a telephone engineer service include?

Telephone engineers can do more than just install a new phone line in your office or home - they can help you troubleshoot connection problems with your broadband or fax lines, help improve the reception you get on these devices, and more. While the specifics can vary from Tasker to Tasker, here’s what you can expect when you request a telephone engineer service on Airtasker:

Phone line and socket installation

Got a new home or office and need your phone lines installed quickly? We can find a Tasker to do this for you! This service is also ideal for those who’d like a second phone line installation or those who want it set up in a particular room or area. Telephone engineers can also reposition or install a new socket in an area that’s easier for you to reach. 

No need to worry about purchasing any equipment or tools for this - your specialist arrives with all these in their kit! Just provide the phone line, point to where you’d like it set up, and they’ll hop to it.

Phone troubleshooting and repair

If you’ve been experiencing problems with your telephone, like cordless phones with receivers that are too far away, or previous repairs that were done poorly, a Tasker can help sort things out. Detail your phone’s issues in the task post, so prospective telephone engineers will know what equipment to bring. 

Then, they’ll assess your phone units, the electrical outlets, DSL filter, and the connector box. Once they find the problem, they’ll do the necessary repair or replacement, test the phone, and be on their way.

Internet connection installation and troubleshooting

Phone lines are pretty much linked to your internet connection, so you’ll need to consult a telephone engineer if you’re experiencing slow internet speeds or want to set up a new computer. Taskers can check your cables and phone line extension. If necessary, they can set up a socket closer to your workstation to improve your broadband or wireless connection.

Still, got IT troubles after troubleshooting with your telephone engineer? It might be time to upgrade your computer.

Completing your home or office phone line set-up

Your office or home workstation may need more than just a working phone line and an internet connection - you might also need to install a fax machine, hide unsightly cables, or put in a Sky TV installation! The good news is that our telephone engineers are usually equipped to handle these kinds of tasks, too. 

And if phone line connections are just the start of your office to-do list, we can also help you with chores like assembling furniture or work stations. With Airtasker, you can get your new workplace set up in no time at all!

Reinstall phone line


Middle Park VIC 3206, Australia

3rd Nov 2021

I’ve just moved into a new house and the phone line isnt connected anymore NBN technician said it’s been cut in front yard (it historically was laid close to neighbours fence line and it appears they accident cut it) and doesn’t reach beyond the property limit so he can’t connect me. I just want the line reinstated so I can get internet. Line may be very old so probably look for a completely new line to be laid. House is only 4m off the footpath so small distance of coverage.

Great help - knew his stuff, came up with solutions, responsive. Highly recommended

Phone line re-wiring


Travancore VIC, Australia

4th Jul 2021

Hello, I managed to rip my phone line box off the wall yesterday.. I tried to match up the wires to re-wire but couldn’t seem to match them up. There are two sets of wires - one coming from the wall and one coming from the floor.. I was unsure which set was needed to be reconnected. I need someone to repair my blunder. Can you help? We are moving house in two days so a Monday fix would be ideal. Thank you in advance! Gabrielle

Thomas was nice and thorough with our wiring problem - would call on him again.
