Phone cabling

Answered
Does anyone know if the short 'phone type' cable that is supplied by NBN Co that plugs into the wall socket where the old phone was plugged into and then into the NBN connection box is the same as typical phone type cables? The cord I was supplied with is quite short so won't reach the NBN connection box where I want to locate it but I have plenty of long 'old' phone type cables that will.

Re: Phone cabling

Hello again cf4. Hate to bother you but is the cable Telstra suppliedcme with to connect the NBN box and the Smart Modem (the one with red and yellow ends) anything special or just a regular cat 5 or 6 Ethernet cable? I need a longer cable than the Telstra one. Thanks.

Re: Phone cabling

The cable that Telstra supplied is just a standard cat 6 Ethernet cable. It has a red connector on one end just to make it easier for people to know which port on the modem the cable connects to.
