Perth Builders and connecting new homes to NBN
June 06, 2012 at 3:44 PM
Below is a system that NBN Co have implemented to help stream line the connection of new homes in NBN areas.
For a smooth and efficient connection to high-speed broadband for your customers, Perth builders can now request pre installation of the in-home equipment supporting NBN access. The process is intended to accommodate completion of new home construction independently of the build of network elements external to the block. The approach minimises disruption to residents moving into these new homes, and simplifies Developer project and site management activities.
At lock up stage, provided the conduit path has been completed, all new homes should be booked in with NBN Co for in-home equipment installation. Equipment installation should occur at least 10 days prior to occupation so that once residents have moved in they can contact their preferred RSP to get connected to the NBN. (The NTD pre-install process is only available at Developments where NBN Co. has been engaged to supply fibre).
All you need to do is call 1800 881 816 to request a 'NTD Pre-Install' and make an appointment. Please ensure you have the following ready when you call:
- Development Name
- Premises Address/Location
- Does the premise have power available? If not, what is the expected power connection date
- Number of Premises
- Preferred Date for the Pre-Install to occur
Once your request has been made, you will receive a call back to confirm your booking date and time.
New Home Building Brokers will continue to monitor this hot topic over the coming year.
