Coaxial Wall Socket to Ethernet Socket

Good day,


I recently moved to the property I own.
I was trying to connect to the NBN but Telstra Team advised NBN is not available at my place. I tried ADSL connection also but unfortunately I don't have Ethernet socket in the property. The connection I have is old Foxtel/Co-axial. Can any one suggest what are the options I have?

It looks like there used to be a Telstra cable. If your area has been converted to NBN it will either have been converted to NBN HFC, FTTC or FTTN. If your area has not been converted to NBN you should still be able to get Telstra cable.

That is a Telstra cable connection, and you have two points, probably off the same service (which might need to be checked in the event you can still get the service or NBN HFC)..


As @cf4 mentioned, that service may have been converted to NBN HFC...  you can check what is available to you by typing your street address into either of these, as a first step..

Note that if you are able to get NBN HFC, there may be a delay because the NTD devices are in short supply right now..

Too many devices, probably an addict :-) also a tinkerer and developer of stuff..
Not with Telstra, just another customer like you!
