If you are building or renovating there are a couple of things your builder needs to do to prepare your home for fibre broadband.
Enable provides a free underground lead-in for almost all properties in our coverage area. We will install our red micro-tubing whilst the service trench is open.
We recommend installing Cat6 ethernet cabling that travels out through a central hub called a home distribution box. Please note the home distribution box can be affected by heat. Don't install it in the ceiling or where it can be susceptible to high temperatures.Underfloor installation of the distribution box (optical network terminal) is also unsuitable due to extreme temperature ranges and high humidity.
Make sure your electrician installs an internal fibre conduit from the outside of your house to your home distribution box.
