Not sure. Normally as part of the installation process, the first socket is installed by NBN Co.

 

What type of internet connection are you getting (enter your address at https://nbnco.com.au and it will tell you)?

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

I checked it and it said I am available for FTTC service but I couldn’t find the proper socket for the cable.

Well, that definitely connects via a normal phone socket. The installation of the first connection in a home is usually done by the technician during installation.

 

Did a technician come out and look at your house and then tell you that you needed to get someone to do it, or did someone just call you?

I have also just moved into a new house that apparently doesn't have even a traditional phone socket. I have sockets for the aerial, two foxtel points and what looks like a little white box on a skirting board. How does an old house not even have a connection for a rotary phone? 

I also need someone to come out. But who? Have you worked out who?
