For new developments, the permanent cabling required to complete the connection to the nbn™ network will need to be organised by the property buyer and their registered cabler.
To discuss the requirements for your premises, contact a registered cabler and your preferred phone or internet service provider.
A registered cabler, which you can find via the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) website, must complete the cabling required to connect the new premises to the nbn™ network. Other connections which rely on the nbn™ network and may also require cabling include fire alarms, lifts, medical alarms and phones.
A registered cabler must install cabling in accordance with the Australian Standards AS/CA S009 2013.
It’s important that builders and cablers talk to new homeowners about the telecommunications services they may want to access in their homes. They can then provide guidance on where nbn™ Supplied Equipment, phone and data outlets should be located as this may vary depending on nbn™ network technology type.
Registered cablers may need to alter nbn™ facilities when connecting your property to the nbn™ network. nbn authorises registered cablers to make limited alterations as long as the work is carried out to nbn's requirements.
This includes assets in nbn facilities on residential and small business premises fed by copper cables of 10 pair or less.
The following nbn standards and guidelines are for builders and cablers.
These outline the requirements for setting up the premises to complete the connection to the nbn™ network, including internal and external conduit paths and utility box separations.
