NBN Fibre Phone Service

Hi all,


Just wondering, does Optus offer a Fibre Phone NBN Phone Service.


This service is where you have your phone directly plugged in by a standard RJ-12 connector to one of the UNI-V ports on the NBN Connection Box. With this connection you are not using VOIP and therefore do not require Optus specific settings.


As such, as I understand it, you could then plug directly from the specified Uni-D ports via Ethernet cable into the WAN port of your choice of routers. This would definitely alleviate the mess with port forwarding that a lot of members are experiencing.

Hey GregT, we don't currently offer any services over the UNI-V ports on the NBN NTD. All our voice services are VoIP through the Optus modem sorry.

There are two phone ports on the NBN fibre box. Telstra uses these for their phone services. As a matter of course they also provide a battery backup unit when connecting the phone service. This was for a stand alone phone service. Don't know what the arrangement is for a phone/internet bundle.
