Do I need to cancel my ADSL after ordering NBN?
Sometimes you will need to manually cancel your ADSL service after getting connected to NBN. This is required for FTTP, HFC and Fixed Wireless NBN services.
This is because your new NBN service will run completely independently to your ADSL service.
If you have FTTN, FTTB or FTTC NBN this will likely use the same telephone line that your ADSL is using. This means that it will automatically disconnected when NBN is activated. It's often a good idea to call your previous provider to ensure they stop billing you for the service as you cannot have ADSL and NBN running down the same phone line.
With all FTTC services, the NBN activation will disconnect the telephone line. This means if you plan to keep your home telephone number, ensure you do
not connect the NBN NCD until the transfer date of your telephone number. We will provide detailed information around this if you are to receive NBN
via FTTC technology.
