Are you sure that you are in Melbourne?

It's spelt Hawthorn and nowhere near Dallas.

Hi, I can confirm that by the end of next week, we will have a facility up for those customers on a bundled ADSL2 plan such as yourself to apply for the naked ASDL2 service. The provisioning time to change your current bundled service to a naked plan will take around 2-3 working days.(you should st...

No one is complaining about the time the connection took - amazing how flamers can read anything into anything. Dogwomble. I've seen numerous posts in the forum from Exetel staff to support the expectation that the old phone service continues for a couple of days. Here's one - http://forum.exetel.co...

People you are missing the point. This is not an issue about the Naked ADSL2 service - it is perfectly clear. The point is that Exetel tell you that you have a couple of days once the service is connected to set up your VOIP service and during that time you still have your old service. This is what ...

I realise that but was surprised (as she was) when she couldn't make an STD call.

If this is what is happening, people should be warned of the transition.

Loss of STD/Mobile capability whne Naked ADSL2+ is activated

Just wanting to check if this is correct. My daughter just had her new connection activated. I know that approximately 2 days after she will loose dialtone, etc. But on the connection date she lost the ability to make STD and mobile calls. Should that have happened? I don't recall seeing it mentione...

Thank you Richard for that.

Is there any likelihood in the future of being able to keep an existing number with the transfer?

I would think the downtime can be limited to just ADSL by first cancelling the existing ADSL, then switching the Optus phone line back to Telstra, then applying for Naked ADSL. This probably causes a little more than 14 days ADSL downtime, but should minimise phone downtime. You could be right ther...

Why should the downtime matter so much? After all, it will rarely exceed 14 days and you can easily get dial-up internet replacement in the interim, perhaps even convince a friendly neighbour to share their internet wirelessly? You realise that as you won't have a phone line as well, if you are on ...

The Billion has T.38 as well - not that you need it. :D

It would have to offer a lot of improvement in VOIP for me to speed an extra $350 for that improvment so it is hard for me to see it but your choice in the end.

Happy to help.

And yes, 1 FXO is usually plenty.

With multiple FXS, you could have different VOIP numbers on each for example.

If you don't need 3 FXS, a much cheaper option (going by the RRP on that website, is the Billion that I use.

You plug the handsets into the FXS ports and connect the FXO to the phone socket. If you using PSTN this will connect your phones straight from FXS to FXO (or vice versa). If you using VOIP the call goes via the modem but the FXO provides fallback, ie if the VOIP fails you still get connected to PS...

On my modem (Billion 7404VGP) I have two FXS and one FXO port. You plug the handsets into the FXS ports and connect the FXO to the phone socket (via an ADSL2 filter). If you using PSTN (normal phone) this will connect your phones straight from FXS to FXO (or vice versa). If you using VOIP the call g...
