Wait for your delivery from Optus

You’ll get sent an Optus NBN Starter Pack that contains a new WiFi modem, power adapter, phone cable and a few Ethernet cables. It will also contain an info card and installation guide, so you can get up and running.

Plug in your devices

Once the NBN has arrives in your area and we’ve notified that you are ready to go online, plug in your new modem and power it up. Connect all your devices to your WiFi connection and plug in your home phone to your modem to connect.

Alternatively you also have the option of booking an Optus NBN technician to professionally install your modem for an additional fee.

What happens if I chose to book a tech?

If you prefer a professional Optus NBN installation instead, they are booked based on which NBN tech is closest to your area on the proposed install day. Remember appointments are allocated on a first come, first serve basis.
