AZ Connect offers a wide range of cable hauling and installation solutions, including optical fibre hauling, telephone cabling hauling, power cabling, fusion splicing, testing, and commissioning. We use winches and cable blowing machines to help with cable hauling. Access Pits can be installed to make cable hauling easier, rough terrain services are available, and harsh environments and tight locations are all catered for.
We provide the following hauling services:
AZ Connect offers complete cabling solutions, including cable repair, replacement, and NBN installation. Our team is fully certified to repair, replace, or install lead-in cables from the carrier pit to your 1st socket or MDF.
For ADSL/VDSL and cable broadband services, we offer underground or above-ground cabling. We cover optical fibre and RG6 for HFC to the PCD, and work with copper, HFC, and fibre lead-in cables. The type of cable used depends on the type of network installed in your area.
Our Technicians are qualified to install, repair, or replace Telstra/NBN underground or aerial cables. We work with 2-100 pair copper cables to the premises, including FTTN/B & FTTP or HFC cabling. We can locate damaged or blocked underground lead-in pipes, and repair cabling as required before reinstalling new cables. This can be a cost-effective solution compared to new lead-in pipe installation.
Most copper lead-ins have been in place for over 30 years, which can cause drops-outs, slow speeds, and other internet faults. We will test all internet faults, provide you with a detailed report, and provide you with a complete resolution service.
