Re: nbn connection

On the switchover day, about 10 minutes or so. If you never received a notification of when your connection date was (or it has passed), call 1800 834 273.
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Re: nbn connection

That's the number I rang and was no help at all, it took half an hour of me repeating myself and she still couldn't get my details

HI Jackocairns, 


Sorry to hear of the poor experience you've had trying to get your NBN service connected. If the team on the other end of that phone number is not helping then you're welcome to lodge a formal complaint in relation to this. You'll be assigned a case manager who will be in touch with you as soon as possible to discuss your concerns and work with you to come to a solution.
