To answer this question "How can I connect" we need to divide what we are connecting into three categories

  • Equipment designed to connect to the existing analogue telephone lines delivered over copper
  • Equipment designed to connect to the special services delivered over the copper network
  • Equipment that is designed to be connected to a computer network

Examples of equipment
Connecting to the NBN's network
Equipment designed to connect to the existing copper network which is used to supply a Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS)
Analogue telephone
Cordless phone system
Back to base security systems
Medical alert
Facsimile machines
Modems(analogue)
Multi line telephone systems
Whilst most of these should be able to be connected to NBN’s network it depends on the Service Provider you choose and the specific equipment you have. It is therefore recommended you contact your equipment supplier or the provider of the specific service in question such as Alarm systems and medical alert systems and the Service Provider you are considering.
Equipment designed to connect to special services delivered over the copper network
ISDN devices
Private line
ADSL modems
The equipment you use will most probably become obsolete and you will need to consider upgrading. It is recommended you contact your Service Provider for further advice.
Equipment that is designed to be connected to a broadband service or home network
Computers
Laptops
Printers
Network Drives
Smart TVs
Mobile Phones
Tablets
All this type of equipment can be connected to NBN Co’s network and will in most cases be done via a device supplied by your Service Provider typically called a “Home Gateway”. The question is, what options do you have to make the connection between a device located in the back room of your Home and the Gateway installed next to NBN co’s NTD which will probably be in the front of the house. There are a range of technologies that can be used and you can find out more by going to Home Networking technologies.
