Is This You?
Moving over to NBN can be a little frustrating and somewhat confusing. This is a brand-new technology that will now be powering our phone and internet for the foreseeable future. One of the main problems concerning our clients is how to make all the existing phone sockets in your home or office work just like before, with your new NBN VOIP phone service. This is easily achievable with a few modifications of your internal phone copper wiring network. Depending on what technology your NBN service is being delivered to your premises, there are several ways to go about getting this wired up safely, so you will have a reliable and fully functional NBN multiple phone socket systems inside your home or office.
What Is Your Technology?
NBN is being delivered to Australian homes and businesses through a variety of different technologies, a mongrel mix you could say. So, depending on what your NBN delivery technology is to your premises, we will then decide on how we can get your multiple phone outlets working. An example of one of these NBN delivery technology’s will be, FTTN (fibre to the node) this is the cheapest and most common of the technologies. This is where NBN uses fibre optic cables from the exchange to the node box in your local DA. (distribution area) From the node to your home, the rest of the service is delivered via the existing Telstra copper network. So, if you have FTTN for your NBN service, you are still using the old Telstra copper lead-in cable to bring in your NBN service from the street to your home. This lead-in cable will need to be on a different circuit than the other phone sockets of your home or business, and it may require some new cabling, but there are many different workarounds we have found work perfectly.
Can I Do It Myself?
The short answer is, not really. There are a few things that need to be considered, yes you can plug from the phone port at the back of your modem directly into an existing phone socket and everything may just work ok. If this is you, happy days. But for a lot of people, this will not be so simple. For example, if you have HFC (hybrid fibre-coaxial) which is mostly delivered through your existing Foxtel cable network, then in a lot of cases plugging straight into your phone socket might not work. Because this technology is delivered on a coaxial network, that means your copper phone lines are still connected back to the local telephone exchange in most cases, so you may still be getting 50 volts coming through the line from the exchange battery. This could potentially damage your modem and will certainly cause problems with making and receiving calls. To see full details on this issue we have a full article with videos on this you can find at, connecting existing phone sockets to NBN HFC modem. So, in most cases call us and we can advise you over the phone if it is safe for you to just plug your modems phone port into your socket or not.
How Much Does It Cost?
Most of the time this task can be performed in about 1.5 hours. Depending on what your technology is and what the state of your internal phone lines and sockets are like, this may also play into the equation. But if all your existing phone sockets are in working order, and your internal cables are testing and functioning correctly, then it is usually a simple task to rewire the internal cabling, remove the existing Telstra lead-in cable if needed, test the phone sockets for dial tone and correct working functions then write a report, this can all usually be carried out within 1.5 hours. So, for this service, we just charge you our basic installation rate of $360.
