Home phone plug into nbn box

Hi, just have the nbn for the home phone line, no internet needed.

I was curious if I could just plug my home phone into the nbn connection box with the cord already with the phone (they use the existing phone line and plug into power sockets) or do I need a specific cord to plug the phone into the nbn box?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Unless you are on FTTP and specifically requested phone only over the UNI-V port/IP-POTS/Telstra voice basic, you need to use the Telstra modem
