Reliable and honest

By Benalla Ensign

If you’re having problems with your TV reception make sure you ring Terry at ‘‘gr8 antennas’’.

Terry Ellis is a local who has run gr8 antennas in the Benalla community for 18 years, with more than 40 years’ experience in the industry, having previously worked for the SEC’s Radio Section in Benalla.

And in that time Terry says he has never received a call back to fix up work he has carried out.

‘‘So far in 18 years I’m yet to have anyone ring me back to get me to re-fix something,’’ he said.

‘‘I like to think that people know me as a local bloke.

‘‘I’ve lived in Benalla all my life and I have no intentions of moving any time soon.’’

Originally known as North East Telephone and Cabling Services, the local business has evolved with the times and re-focused its aim on the television industry, Telstra 3G/4G antennas and WiFi solutions.

Along with those services, Mr Ellis solves long-range WiFi problems and provides help with Telstra mobile repeaters.

‘‘I’ve always enjoyed the challenge of someone ringing me up in trouble, and sorting that out for them,’’ he said.

‘‘I enjoy meeting people and helping them out, especially the elderly who can’t actually get onto the roof to check it out themselves.

‘‘So they have to look for a reliable and honest tradesperson to do that for them, and I’d like to think that’s exactly how I’m perceived.’’

gr8 antennas also provides free no-obligation quotes. ●Phone Terry on (03)57621544 or 0408596456 today.
