ADSL2 to NBN HFC

Post by langdon » Sun Sep 16, 2018 9:04 pm

I am getting NBN HFC (old Telstra HFC not Optus) in Jan 2019. I currently have exetel ADSL2 with a D-Link DSL-2880AL modem connected to a Unifi USG and other unifi gear (switch/Access points/camera’s etc). Will I be able to bridge my Dlink to the NBN connection box? Also, I have a large UPS, it seems I should be able to connect the NBN connection box to the UPS so I don’t lose internet during power outages. I just have make sure they run the cable and install the NBN connection box under my house where my server rack is.

Yes, D-Link DSL-2880AL modem is a Fibre compatible modem which is supporting to authenticate an Ethernet WAN connection type. Hence you will be able to use this modem once you migrated to NBN Co. HFC Technology. And with regards to the installation of the HFC Cable Device, you may contact our Provisioning Department during the activation process.
