Hey Yes Crowd - I'm moving address from a NBN serviced location to an address that does not yet have NBN connected.
How does Optus handle this?
What will the impacts be on my internet service?
Yes it will impact your internet service as after all you're moving.
Optus handles it by you requesting a move to the new address, depending on the type of service you currently have (VDSL) it may be a matter of taking you're modem and plugging in and waiting. I guess the bonus is the modems are backwards compatible so they shouldn't have any issues if it ends up as a ADSL service. Yes there's plenary of behind things that have to happen before the service would become active the big one being is there Optus infrastructure and/or/if there port availability ect ect. Then of course there's the time it takes for the process to be followed through.
A thought comes to mind about phone number allocations and I'm sort of sure once a landline number is ported into NBN infrastructure there isn't a port out feature, of that I'm not sure of.
