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!
