Telstra cable

Do Telstra offer cable BB? Might seem like a silly question but can't find the specific details, only that the connection is cable, adsl++ or something else. I don't want adsl as I am too far from exchange and get speeds around 3.5Mb/s on a good day. Also, is the $192 installation fee for cable mandatory? i alreay have foxtel connected.


Does anyone know if there is a way simply to churn to a Telstra BB cable product?

Hi Knerps, before any of the ballance of your questions here are answered, you need to determine if indeed Cable Broadband is in fact available to your home and street etc. It's NOT available in all areas.


To do this pop along to the following link and enter your address etc, so as to determine exactly what connections (Type) would be available to you: https://www.telstra.com.au/broadband/home-broadband
