Is this considered acceptable?
As long as both ends are T568B then it should be fine (from my very limited understanding of the cable standards).
The technician is coming at the end of the week to install the NBN box and complete our new lead-in.
The NBN tech will only test the FTTC box and the phone line it connects to. They will not care about any other additional wiring in you home.
Hey @CM6411, thanks for reaching out mate. I'm afraid we don't offer internal cabling services, however in saying that moving around cabling is possible depending on your current set up and connection. I would recommend having a chat to an electrician if you need the NBN outlet moved or an additional outlet installed.

Just so as you aware, and not as any sort of criticism, in Australia the regulations don't allow anyone to run permanent cabling that connects to any telecommunications service, unless licenced. You can string an exposed ethernet cable between rooms but under the regs, may not install sockets in walls and run cables in-wall between them. Having said that, you wouldn't be the first or last to do it. Maintain a distance of at least 50mm (I think that's right, but may be more) between cable and any 240V cabling. The idea is to ensure a nail or screw into a wall cannot strike both, and connect them, sending power into the comms cabling.
