Is there any way to activate my new NBN connection using a BYO modem? The technician has been to my property and have received advice that the connection is ready to go, however I have not received my modem and Optus can't give me an estimated delivery timeframe
Everything I have read indicates that you can't active an Optus NBN service without using one of their supplied Modem/routers, but once its up and running you can switch to a B.Y.O.
Apparently if you use a B.Y.O. to connect the first time it locks up the line and requires you to contact Optus to unlock the line.
I've mostly seen these lock-up comments in relation to FTTN/FTTB, so don't know if lockups are true in general, or only happen because the attempt to connect was with bad setting on the B.Y.O. device.
What type of connection do you have?
