Moving your Office Phone and Broadband

Book your move online and one of our specialists will be in touch to help you arrange the relocation of your Telstra services.

The technology available at your new premise will determine the cost and complexity of your move – in many situations you will require a technician to visit your premise to connect your services. Your specialist will arrange an appointment with you if required.

Please note that the technician will connect to the MDF in your building if your new premise is in an office block. This is usually located in the basement of the building.

If you require any wiring to be placed within the office, you will need to employ a technician to complete this for you. You can arrange this through Telstra or a private contractor. You may also need to move your phone system, please speak with your phone system provider about this.

There will be a charge to move your office phones and internet. These costs range from $99 to $299* per service depending on the amount of technician work required. *A New Development Fee of $300 may apply in some circumstances.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • If you’ve left it to the last minute, you can request next business day connection/disconnection for fixed lines on copper when you book online. We’ll try to meet your needs if it’s possible. But this will depend on the complexity of your move, and if a technician is required.
