Telstra 'snot boxes' challenge Turnbull's FTTN plan


In a detached dwelling (and in a unit where the is no MDF) Telstra is responsible up to the first socket, so if you are happy with the current location of the phone socket you do not have to get a cabler to install anything. If you want a second socket or if you request Telstra to install a Network Terninating Device (beige box) on the side of your house then you need to hire a registered cabler or pay Telstra fee-for-service to complete that work.

The installation of an NTD is optional and despite what some Telstra subcontractors may tell you, the grey Telstra box on the side of many houses is not the network boundary and Telstras responsobility does not end there.
