Bigpond Cable install

Hi, I'm moving house, an entire 4 streets away!, and according to the Bigpond Broadband site I can only get ADSL2+, not cable.


However if I enter other addresses in the same street those houses can get cable.


The new house is in a cul-de-sac which may explain it, but it's not a big/long street. 


Is it possible to pay to get the cable extended to my end of the street?


There is a small pit in the footpath out the front of house as well as a small green box next to it.


Was this helpful?

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

Re: Bigpond Cable install

Hi PatrickL,

Sounds like a Cable commercial quote will need to be done to confirm that Cable is available at your premises, if other nearby have it and you don't.

You can start this process by contacting our Live chat team via, Just advise them this is what is needed and they can organise this for you Smiley Happy
