Home phone set up with nbn

Answered

 

 

just moved to the nbn and trying to set up the home phone. Do I need a DSL filter or can I connect to the old line.

Re: Home phone set up with nbn

For most NBN connections the phone must be plugged directly into the green phone port on the back of modem or if you have DECT 2.0 Wireless up to 5 handsets can be paired with DECT 2.0 base in the modem.

 

It is only on some fixed wireless NBN connections that the phone will work plugged into the existing phone wall sockets.

 

You don't need a DSL filter.
