Important News : Telephone Systems and the NBN
With the roll-out of the NBN in many areas, recent feedback from customers in those areas has indicated that some Telephony Service Providers and/or their representatives are providing incorrect information to customers about their options with regard to NBN connection.
An example of this misinformation is "Your telephone system is incompatible with the NBN and must be replaced".
Then the offer of a "compatible" system, or service, may be made, with costs, contracts, etc. Note: loss of existing system features may occur.
In almost all cases existing telephone systems can be connected to the NBN ! Some may require ancillary equipment to do so. Some - like current Hybrex equipment - may be NBN ready, or easily made so, right now. For some more detailed information see here : NBN solutions
However the story doesn't end there ... in addition to Telephony providers there are also Scammers attempting to prey on the uninformed.
