Preparing for NBN - What'll happen on the day

Ihave to install nbn by cut off date in my area in Oct . Before I make an actual appointment with optus, to do the work, can I apply for an inspection so that I know what work has to be done in or outside my property, prior to the work being carried out.? Do I contact optus or nbn about it. It is important for me to know what will be required to run the cable or whatever. I cannot have the cable run outside in my drive way cause it is fully tiled and I will not agree to any work being done if my tiles have to be broken away as I cannot get any replacements . I want to know if they can run things from under the house and if the work can be done from inside I want to know what that will involve. I would like to know all of the above before I book for the actual work to be done. Can anyone advise me on this ? Thank you LILLIAN

Re: BROADBAND INTSTALLATION

Without knowing what NBN tech you are getting and the 'service class' you are, it's hard to say.
Pop your address into www.aussiebroadband.com.au/nbn-poi and tell us:
NBN Technology:

NBN Service Class:

 

The service class will determine the next steps.

Re: BROADBAND INTSTALLATION

We need something similar. That's really handy @Jeneral_Pain

 
The nbn™ technology mix does not incorporate any hanging or overhead lead-in cables (other than a few sites in QLD). The majority of technology types other than FTTP will use the existing underground copper or HFC lead-in cables (depending on the technology type). In some instances, i.e. new developments, we have to arrange nbn™ to go out and install the lead-ins. 

 

@BACOLINA - Run your address through the page @Jeneral_Pain has linked, we'll be able to give you an idea of what'll happen on the day of your installation. 

 

You can also have a read through our nbn™ - Quick Start Guide for more info.
