What is a Lead-In Cable?

Essentially, it is the 2 pair cable that physically connects your premises from the Network Boundary Point (NBP) to the buried Telstra or NBN distribution network.

The Lead-In will be in the form of either:

  • an aerial cable from the premises NBP, on eve of roof to the pole joint in the aerial distribution network, or
  • a buried Lead-In Cable from the premises NBP to the pit located on the Street side of the Front boundary.

Aerial vs Buried lead-in cable installation service provided by Internet Repairs


Installation

Your RSP can arrange the installation of an aerial lead-in cable (new services), if required.

Customer must bear the cost of a buried lead-in cable to the property’s front boundary. In addition, if there is no existing lead-in cable or conduit in place, new customers are required to trench and lay 20 mm white PVC conduit (at a depth of 300 mm from the NBP on the side of building to the front boundary), for connecting into the Network.

Faults and Repairs

Moisture and electrolysis have a negative impact on telephone and ADSL wiring. A common fault in especially older homes, involve corroded lead-in cables, where years of use have taken their toll.

If your lead in cable requires repairs, your RSP can request this Network Remediation from either Telstra or NBN Co.
