Prepare Your LIC: Your Responsibility

Preparing your Lead-in Conduit (LIC) is your responsibility, not that of NBN. This crucial step involves submitting a service plan and setting up the in-home cabling, facilitating a direct and hassle-free connection to the nbn® network. Overlooking this can lead to delays in your service activation. Make sure your LIC is ready for a smooth NBN experience.

The man from Secure a com was friendly and efficient. The job was to extend the lead in cord for the NBN box so that it could go to the upstairs flat. He was on time and very proffesional and making the appointment was easy. Securacom came out the next day after I phoned them so no wait time. Excellent service.

Understanding Lead In Cable Installation

When it comes to connecting your home or business to the National Broadband Network (NBN), one crucial aspect that often gets overlooked is the Lead In Cable Installation. This is the process of laying the cable from the NBN boundary to your building’s entry point. It’s a critical step that ensures you get the high-speed internet you’re paying for. If you’ll indulge me, I’ll now break down the key elements you need to know, including trenching requirements and safety measures.

What is Lead In Cable Installation?

Lead In Cable Installation is the laying of a cable that connects the NBN’s network to your premises. This cable runs through a trench, which must be dug according to specific requirements. The installation process is vital for ensuring that you have a reliable and high-speed internet connection.

Why is it Important?

  1. Reliable Connection: A poorly installed lead-in cable can result in slow internet speeds and frequent disconnections.
  2. Safety: Incorrectly dug trenches can be hazardous and may damage other underground services.
  3. Compliance: Following NBN’s guidelines ensures that the installation is up to code, avoiding potential legal issues.

Key Trenching Requirements

According to NBN’s guidelines, there are specific requirements for how the trench should be dug:

  • Depth: The minimum depth of cover for the conduits is normally 300 mm or 450 mm if the conduit runs parallel with the property boundary.
  • Direction: The trenching route should be as direct as possible, avoiding sharp changes in direction.
  • Location: The trench must be within your property boundary and should be near the Electricity Switchboard or Meter Panel for earthing or lightning protection.

Who Should Be Concerned?

  • Property Developers: Need to ensure that the trench is constructed according to NBN guidelines.
  • Builders: Must follow safety and depth requirements.
  • Homeowners: Should be aware of the process to ensure it’s done correctly.

Lead In Cable Repair

Sometimes, despite best efforts, cables can get damaged. In such cases, Lead In Cable Repair becomes necessary. It’s crucial to hire professionals who are familiar with NBN’s guidelines to ensure the repair is done correctly and safely.

NBN Technology and your cable

The Different Types of NBN Lead In Cables

Different NBN technologies require specific types of lead-in cables. For FTTC and FTTN, 2-pair copper cables are commonly used. FTTB and FTTP installations generally utilise fibre-optic cables, while HFC setups require Coaxial RG6 quad shield cables. Each cable type comes with its own set of benefits and challenges.

For example, fibre offers high-speed data transfer but may require specialised installation. Copper is easy to install but might suffer from signal degradation. Coaxial RG6 is robust but limited in terms of bandwidth.

In most cases, around 70% of the time, you won’t need to install the lead-in cable yourself. However, exceptions exist, such as steel private poles for aerial installations, due to OH&S issues for NBN contractors.

Your primary role is to get the trenching and conduit work done accurately, ensuring a drawstring is in place. This preparation is vital for facilitating a smooth process when NBN contractors arrive to connect your premises to the network. Large installations like sports grounds may also necessitate custom work. Sometimes, the average person may encounter challenges too. Whatever the situation, we’re here to provide expert assistance.
