Prior to your NBN Co appointment, you should have a think about where you would like your NBN Connection Box installed. Some of the things you should consider when selecting a location include:
- Ensure there is a free power point within 3 metres of where the NBN Connection Box will be installed
- Ensure the NBN Connection Box is installed as close as possible to where the modem will be located in your home
- Ensure you’ve considered the light that the NBN Connection Box emits e.g. it may not be a good idea to install it in a bedroom, home theatre room or any other room that you'd like to have dark on occasion
- Ensure the NBN Connection Box is not installed outside your property, in the garage, in a wet area or in a hard to reach location.
Note a standard NBN installation only allows for 40 metres of fibre optic cable connecting the NBN Utility Box (located outside your home) to your NBN Connection Box (located inside your home).
