Optus cable, then to NBN?

Hi,

I have searched the forum, with no success;

I am currently with Exetel ADSL2, if I order a cable connection from Optus (leaving my ADSL connected & untouched), will that enable Exetel to take over that connection for my NBN when it arrives?
My local exchange is;
Port Melbourne – 175-183 Clark St, Port Melbourne 3207 – PMEL
NBN website says I will be getting the cable version, I think they call it Hybrid, in my area not the copper version.

Why am I asking this?
I would like better upload speed for my web server.
I would like Exetel to continue as my provider.

Thanks,

Paul

Hi Paul,

Please be advised that Exetel currently does not provide services using the cable connection (NBN Hybrid via Cable). However, we would like to further discuss availability to your area. Could you kindly PM your contact details to arrange a call back.
