We are about to start renovating, and the NBN and main phone base are in a room that is about to become a bedroom. So I need to move the box and connections to another room. Do I need Optus to do this, NBN? or can a sutiably qualified Electrician do it?
Solved! Solved: Go to Solution.
You generally need to contact Optus and they will arrange for an NBN technician to relocate the box. This will almost certainly involve costs (a few hundred $). Note that another option is to just run a cat5 cable from where the box is now to the room you want it in. Any electrician (or even you) can put a point in the wall next to the box. that point can go back to some other central area. As part of your renovation you should consider putting in a couple of wired points if needed that can all be fed off a simple switch in the central area.
Depends if you need the box out of the bedroom as to whether you want to move it.
