Data Cable Installation and Upgrade

Our homes are full of smart devices, appliances and gaming consoles which all need one thing: internet access. Data cabling is your highway to the world, and Metropolitan Electrical Contractors can offer modern and safe data cable installation.

But what is data cabling? Data cables play a huge role in transporting information to devices throughout homes, such as computers, laptops, gaming consoles, smart systems or smart televisions.

An ethernet connection is a direct access point to your National Broadband Network (NBN) or internet router. You can enjoy fast internet, the convenience of direct node-to-node information transfer and skip the common Wi-Fi lags.

Older homes may not have enough data points, to begin with, even after NBN has been installed. Or your home may not be ready to handle the demands of a family with what feels like hundreds of smart devices!

Our electricians offer modern and safe data cable installation throughout your walls and ceiling. It’s hidden away with subtle data points – like powerpoints – all you see. This is where our expert team can provide the following:

  • Data point installation for ethernet access
  • Antenna access
  • Modem outlet
  • Home office networks
  • USB outlets

To help your home office make it to the next level, or complete an elite gaming setup, contact Metropolitan Electrical Contractors.

Data Point Services

Our reliance on Wi-Fi and the internet cannot be underestimated. From scrolling through social media to smart lighting or smart security, there’s always a need for it.

But when there’s high demand or a need for heavy internet usage you want to avoid lags. Data points and in-home data cabling provides a complete internet solution. With direct node-to-node transmission, you can simply plug in an ethernet cable to the wall and connect to your gaming console, computer or smart system.

It’s perfect for your home office LAN, VoIP handsets and all smart devices. Anyone working from home should certainly invest in a reliable home internet connection.

Metropolitan Electrical Contractors can help you with all data cables and data points, providing seamless connections for:

  • Fibre Optic
  • Coaxial Cables
  • Twisted Pairs
  • USB cables and USB powerpoints

FAQs – All You Need to Know About Data Cabling

Do you have any questions about data cabling? We've got the answers right here.

Data cables, such as ethernet cables, transport information between devices and nodes. For example, the NBN (National Broadband Network) requires data cabling.

Despite the small size, they play a big role in bringing the world to our fingertips while at home. Additionally, they’re an added convenience in a time where most of us rely on the latest technologies and home offices.

Not quite. There are three main types, and you’ll already be aware that things like an Ethernet cable are shaped very differently to what you charge a phone with.

The three main types are:

  • Fiber Optic: Transmits data in the form of light. The preferred method for fast internet connections.
  • Coaxial Cable: Carries signals at a high frequency, with a central core conductor surrounded by an insulator. Used for things such as Foxtel and digital phone networks.
  • Twisted Pair: Two copper core wires, twisted throughout the cable. Tends to only work well over shorter distances.

The USB cables you use with a phone are a type of a data cable, however, they are vastly different to an ethernet cable trailing from your modem.

Not all USB cables are the same, either. Even those that look the same may not have the internal parts to charge a phone and transfer data, it may only charge a phone. You want to be sure you have the right USB cable and USB powerpoints at home.
