Will Optus Install Broadband cable undergound

tgendall

I've just been quoted $360 to have "an Optus technician" run the cable (from the existing Optus cable on the overhead wires on the pole outside our new house), to connect to our underground conduit within 10 business days. Is this true or possibel. Previosu Optus technician have advise we have to arrange this ourselves. We don't have an Optus pit. 

 

We already have a Telstra pit but it will Take Telsra 21 busniess days to do the same thing.

Not sure on the pricing but yes, Optus can do what you're wanting.

So does that mean Optus will arrange the private contractor to install the conduit from pole to  property boundary?

What's required before an Optus technician attends?

In brief, a qualified private contractor must lay in an enclosed trench, a white 32mm telecommunications conduit containing a draw wire. The trench will run from the pole on the street to the blind side or your house (where there are other services eg. electricity meter box).

All components of the preparation work must adhere to AS/ACIF 008 and 009.

 

 

By what I'm reading here, no, Optus won't supply you a contractor. You must do it yourself or if confident enough, install it yourself as per the Optus guidelines
