Fixmyline Telecoms Services

Fixmyline was founded by an Ex Bt Openreach Engineer with experience in all matters of Telecoms and IT.
Working for companies such as British Telecom, Cable and Wireless (now Virgin Media) and many more large corporations.

The services we offer you are brought to you with a wealth of hands-on experience, most recently (2023) we are extremely busy with data cabling installations.

This is as a result of the following:
Home improvements combating wireless dead spots
Garden or out building developments using Point to Point wireless links
Direct out building cabling with armored cat6 ethernet for TV/Sky or general surfing requirements
FTTH, Fibre to the home availability is increasing at a rate of knots. But what our customers are finding is that although their speeds are rocketing from 100Mps up to 1Gbps, wireless distribution is still causing them problems. When Wi-Fi travels through walls and floors you might experience a drop in over a half (or more in some instances) of the broadband speed you are paying for. Data cabling specific rooms from your main router with a wired mesh system will give you wall to wall Wi-Fi.

TELEPHONE SOCKET RELOCATION

Phone point relocation

If your main ‘BT’ or Virgin Media socket is in an inconvenient location or you are having renovations then a Fixmyline engineer can help by safely moving the socket. The main phone or broadband socket is your link to the outside world and needs careful attention to avoid creating any other issues.

Additional phone point installation

if you require an extension from you main phone socket or an additional one, then a Fixmyline engineer will be able to assist. It may be that there are other cabling or wireless solutions that would be more appropriate. Contact us to have a chat through what you need and get some free advice.

Thinking of removing old telephone sockets?

Before you decide to remove ay old sockets we can come to your home and survey what you have.

If you wish to keep existing sockets for future usage then we can discuss that with you, however it is best practice (if possible) to only have 1 master socket as this makes for a more robust connection to ensure you receive the fastest broadband speed from your provider.

Home WiFi Solutions

Is your WiFi reaching around your entire home?

If you have Slow WiFi or WiFi dead spots this product is definitely for you. Most basic routers supplied by your internet service provider can just about cover a standard 3 bed house, but in the far to reach rooms the slow broadband signal starts to falter and before you know it you are eating up your mobile data allowance. Not to mention the garden, but why should you settle for anything less than WiFi throughout your home, in your loft extension and way out into your garden.

What is MESH WifI?

Mesh WiFi has far too many benefits to list but the most important is its coverage, but not to mention you could connect up to 30 wireless devices simultainiously to each individual node. Meaning in a 3 node installation you could connect up to 90 devices.

Most Mesh systems come with 2 set up options, Access Point mode (AP) and Router Mode. In AP mode this will benefit Skyq subscribers so that there is no change to the broadcast IP address. This simple solution can be the perfect result for Skq Buffering issues. Simply apply this mesh system and you could directly cable all of your Skyq boxes with enhanced wireless coverage as a result. Fixmyline has applied this method countless times with 100% success.

Mesh Wi-Fi is the perfect solution to Wi-Fi dead spots if there isnt any way of directly cabling them. 

The Mesh systems we use are all hybrid solutions that acts the same as Mesh Wi-Fi. Some of your farthest away rooms can be hard wired with network cabling into this system ensuring a zero reduction in speed and greatly increasing your wireless footprint and overall performance.

Want WiFi without any hassle?

Tell us a bit about your home and WiFi needs and the places you are not getting any service, both indoors and out. Then we’ll put together the perfect setup that’ll provide your home with great wall to wall coverage.

What about WiFi Security?

The Fixmyline mesh Wi-Fi systems allow high level and simple security with an easy-to-use smartphone app. This app makes it simple for any approved users to do things like change WiFi passwords, guest access codes, and make sure security updates are being installed. Our Mesh WIFi even has easy-to-use parental control features, which can make access the internet a safer place for kids.

Garden Building WIFI Solutions

How to get WiFi to a Garden Building or outhouse

If you are one of the many now enjoying more flexible working from home and have a converted office space from a shed or a brand new outbuilding then you’ll need really good WiFi to keep you online.

In most cases, the Wi-Fi signal from your broadband router in your home won’t be strong enough to reach your location. You could use an extender or meshed system.

What will really make a difference is a point to point connection. No long cable running through your flower beds and really good stable speeds is what we’ll provide.

What is point to point wifi?

For connecting a garden building to your braodband network for distances over 100m, a point to point link is recomended.  

A point-to-point Wi-Fi link connects your router to a Wi-Fi access point in the garden building. A connector and receiver are positioned within line of site of your outbuilding. Usually they are mounted on an external wall and pointed in the direction of the outbuilding. The receiver on the garden building then receives the signal via Wi-Fi and transfers it to a wireless access point. This then allows you to get the fastest possible WiFi connection speed.

Ultra reliable in transmiting a WiFi signal over long distances, a point to point connection is the best solution for fast WiFi.

Beam your wifi up to 5km

If you need to extend broadband even further then we have a solution which uses point to point technology for up to 5km!

Using the best technology, Fixmyline can install point to point solutions for farms, holiday parks, really big gardens and campus locations. Get high quality broadband no matter the distance between your buildings. Call us to arrange a survey on 01322 761051

Do you live in a rural location?

4G broadband in essence is just like the regular broadband found in most homes but with a few key differences. With 4G you still getting a steady internet connection, you can connect all of your devices all for a competitive monthly fee.

Do you have an out of date service?

Why pay for something you don’t use… Ditch the landline and opt for a robust, superfast and flexible broadband package that will keep you connected with faster speeds.

NETWORK DATA CABLING

Why structured cabling?

Wireless is perfect for most devices that only need short burst of data. For some devices however, they require more continued capacity. This is where the capability of cabled networking comes in. To prevent overcrowding on your network maybe CAT6 is the right option to choose.

Switched networking also avoids capacity problems for data hungry devices and applications, with each device capable of receiving its full bandwidth without an adverse impact other devices on the network.

High Quality Expertese

We have an in-depth knowledge of data cabling and have carried out major scale network cable wiring for businesses. We have worked on a variety of different commercial and industrial premises. So we can promise you attention to detail for your home of office cabling requirements.

Upgrade your Network Cabling

If you have old data cabling and old network switches this could be a bottleneck in your network thats slowing you down. 

Category 5 is a data network cable established since 2001. cat 5 maxes out at 10/100 Mbps speeds at up to 100 MHz bandwidth. So if you have this in your network, or if you have a fast ethernet switch you may find speeds will not go beyond 100mbps.

Category 5e is the minimum requirement in todays networks although mainly only used in CCTV networks. Cat5e can transmit up to 1GB at a distance of up to 100m.

Category 6 cable can also trasmit GB speeds up to 100m, but in short hops of up to 35m speeds can top 10Gbps due to its 250Mhz bandwidth.

The upper most category series (listed below) are mainly used in core networks and consist of the following specifications;

Category 6a 10 Gbps 500 MHz 100 m, Gigabit Ethernet in data centers and commercial buildings

Category 7 10 Gbps 600 MHz 100 m, 10 Gbps Core Infrastructure

Category 7a 10 Gbps 1000 MHz 100 m, 40Gb at 50 m (164 ft.) 10 Gbps Core Infrastructure

Category 8 25 Gbps (Cat8.1) 40 Gbps (Cat8.2) 2000 MHz 30 m, 25 Gbps/40 Gbps Core Infrastructure

5G Broadband

Is your broadband too slow?

Not every home has the luxury of fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) services so with 5G broadband utilising a high gain antenna you can receive speeds that suit today’s wants and needs. Even if your mobile phone has little or no signal we will find it!

Do you live in a rural location?

5G Broadand hasnt yet expanded to many rural areas as yet. Mostly down to infrastructure requirements to broadcast the signal. 5G cellular signals do not travel as far as 4G so more cell towers are required.

Keep in contact with us as technology is fast moving so we may have something in the pipeline. You can also check this website and enter your postcode to see if 5G Broadband is available.
