Good to know:
- If an nbn co technician is needed as part of your connection to the nbn network, we’ll organise the appointment for you and notify you of the details.
- In some cases the nbn co technician may need access to your premises, and you or someone at least 18 years old will need to be there for the appointment. If you cannot be there, the person who is there must also be able to make decisions on your behalf about the installation of your service.
