"Cable"

subscribers to TransACT's "cable"/Phase 1/VDSL service have two Cat 5 network cables run to their premises

  • one services plain old telephone (POTS) only
    • plug in existing telephone handsets
    • can also be used with FAX
  • the second services Internet and optional "WebTV"

subscribers need to be careful not to plug equipment into the incorrect socket

  • has reportedly caused equipment failure

TransACT might agree to "underground" these cables, at customer expense

ADSL

TransACT installers wire a fixed "splitter" at customers premises (usually withing the ceiling space)

  • phone socket usually remains at original location
    • plug in existing telephone handsets
    • can also be used with FAX
  • socket for Internet service is wired at location of customer's preference (if practical)
    • choose location suitable for WiFi coverage, if appliable
    • also choose location from which wired LAN cables could be run in "star" topology

NBN

Would conform with NBN practice. See section below
