By accepting the benefits of this bundled offer, the connection date for your phone that you agree to will likely be longer than the maximum timeframe in the Customer Service Guarantee (CSG). Apart from this, any other rights you have under the CSG still apply. For more information, see optus.com.au/yourCSG

FAIR GO POLICY APPLIES. Available in selected homes in selected areas. Check website for availability.

Important Information for Cable & NBN Customers:

Equipment supplied requires mains power, which may not be suitable if you have a serious illness or condition, require disability services, have a back-to-back alarm, or require an uninterrupted telephone line. If this is the case, contact us and we'll help you find an alternative solution.

Frequently asked questions

  • Can I transfer my existing phone number to Optus?

    Yes, in most cases, as long as you are staying in the same local area. Transferring your number can take up to 10 business days. Just make sure you don't cancel your service with your current provider until the transfer is complete.

  • Will Optus supply me with telephone handsets?

    Unless you've ordered a new handset when purchasing your connection with us, no extra handsets will be supplied. Any working handsets you already have should work with your new Optus service, provided they meet Australian standards.

  • Can I use my existing telephone sockets and extensions?

    We’ll try to activate all pre-existing telephone extensions that are linked to the phone line that you're connecting/activating with us. If you need new sockets/ extensions to be installed, please contact an ACMA approved electrician to complete this work.


  • Will a technician need to come to my home to install equipment?

    Unless the telephone line you're connecting has never been connected before, the technician will try to activate your service remotely (at the exchange) and will only need to come to your home, if the remote attempt isn't successful.

    If an appointment is needed, an English-speaking person over 18 years of age must be at the premises.

  • How long will it take to get my home phone connected?

    You'll receive an SMS and a letter confirming your connection date 3 to 5 business days after placing your connection request.

    If unexpected circumstances lead to a change in the confirmed connection date, we will make every effort to let you know and arrange a new date.
