FAQs

How frequently should I upgrade my antenna?

As a general rule of thumb for digital TV, if the antenna is more than 10 years old, it was not made to properly receive digital TV. On average, most households will consider upgrading their antenna system every 10 to 12 years, despite the average age of antennas being only around 5 years.

From natural deterioration of the antenna and cabling that occurs over time due to changes to the environment (i.e. surrounding shrubbery and trees affecting the signal) and network transmissions, we recommend upgrading your antenna at least once every 5 years to ensure it is compatible with the latest technology and you are able to pick up full digital.

Are my cables too old?

If your digital signal is experiencing problems when other signals are being used, for example when a light is switched on or the fridge is opened, it is likely time to upgrade your cables!

Other frequencies imposing on the digital signal, also known as spurious interference, is caused by a magnetic field that interferes with the digital signal. Believe it or not, having the right cable will dramatically minimise this effect and will give you clearer and more consistent vision. At Speedy Antennas, we use RG-6 Quad shielded cable to ensure you’re receiving the best service.

When did you last upgrade your splitters, connectors and wall plates?

With over 10 years of experience in the industry, we’ve found that among the most common signal problems are houses that have old saddle type splitters, and wall plates. For digital TV, it demands a higher degree of protection from spurious interferences. At Speedy Antennas, we use only F-Type Splitters and wall plates for optimum quality. These types of connections assist in the prevention of any interferences mixing with the Digital TV signal.

How good is your line of sight?

A crucial part of the installation process is taking into consideration the surrounding landscape or any elements that could potentially affect your signal. If there are large hills or trees surrounding your house, this can be harmful to achieving a good quality digital TV signal. However, there is no need to fret as our team of qualified technicians have the necessary skills and tools to detect any issues and 9 times out of 10, our team will be able to find an alternate method for achieving great quality digital TV signal.
