        - Optus may cover the cost of the device as part of the plan while you remain connected for a specified term (we’ll let you know if this applies); or
        - You can pay for a device over a term which we will allow you to select (i.e., ‘pay over time’ or POT) by monthly instalments,
        (each a Device Payment Plan or DPP).
- You will need to remain on an eligible Optus plan for the term of your DPP. If you cancel your eligible plan or move to an ineligible plan before expiry of your DPP, your DPP will also be cancelled, and you’ll need to pay out the remaining device payments in full. Any applicable device credits or discounts will be forfeited. This is subject to your Australian Consumer Law rights. Optus may limit the number of eligible devices per Optus plan.

Important service and equipment information

Optus Email: Optus email addresses will be disconnected when moving from a plan that includes broadband to a phone only plan.

Serviceability: Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee connection until we successfully install your service.

Priority Assistance: We do not offer Priority Assistance. A provider who does is Telstra.

Equipment and battery back-up: Equipment required for the nbn service requires mains power, which may not be suitable if you have a serious illness or condition and require an uninterrupted telephone or data service. We do not support battery back-up functionality for nbn services and in most cases, nbn services will not function during a power failure.

Some equipment like back-to-base and medical alarms and other devices may not be compatible with the nbn or the 4G backup service and are not tested by us or supported on the Optus nbn. You should contact your device supplier to find out if your device will work before connecting to the nbn network.

Accessibility: For information about products and services we offer for customers with different disabilities, please see: https://www.optus.com.au/about/inclusion-diversity/differing-abilities/disability-services.

Use of modem and nbn services: You need to plug in your modem to use the service. Optus is required by law to confirm your nbn service is operational. We may not be able to confirm this if you do not use the modem that Optus supplies you. If you use a modem not supplied by Optus, that is, your own modem, we won’t be able to confirm your voice service (if applicable) is working so it may not be operational, and you will need to inform Optus of any issues with your nbn service before those issues will be rectified. If we supply you with an Optus modem, you should use the Optus supplied modem to ensure your Optus Service is operating optimally.

If you don’t plug in your modem, we will auto-complete your order 10 days after we have reminded you to plug in your modem.

Billing will commence once we confirm your nbn broadband service is operational or once we’ve automatically completed your order (whichever occurs first).

nbn FTTC and HFC: If you are:

- an Optus nbn FTTC customer and fail to plug in your nbn equipment within 30 working days,
- an Optus nbn HFC customer and fail to plug in your nbn equipment within 60 working days,

from your nbn equipment delivery date, your order may be cancelled automatically.

Speed & Video Quality: Many factors affect speed and video quality such as internet traffic, your line condition, your hardware and software, the data source or destination, your location and the number of simultaneous video streams or other downloads you have running over your connection.

The Typical Busy Period Upload Speed advertised for the 25/10Mbps speed option is our best estimate, based on the available wholesale access network speed data. This is not based on the speeds observed for a representative sample (which are not yet available for this speed option). Once more data is available, the Typical Busy Period Upload Speed for the 25/10Mbps speed option will be updated accordingly.
