3. Contact a phone or internet provider:

You won’t be connected to the nbn™ network automatically, so contact your preferred phone or internet service provider to discuss your requirements and select the most appropriate plan for your needs.
It’s a good idea to switch to the nbn™ network well before your disconnection date to allow time for your order to be processed, and for installation, if applicable.

1. Replacement of back up battery: Backup battery available for NBN™ Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) Power Supply Units. This battery backup, when fully charged, can allow an NBN™ Fibre Phone plugged into a UNI-V port on your Connection Box to work between 3 and 11 hours in the event of a power outage. Approximate usage is 5 hours.

3. OPTICOMM / Telstra Velocity: Like NBN there are two other companies  offering high speed Internet network. These ones have a slightly different cabling standards as NBN.

4. External and Internal Installations:
