Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take to get connected?

If you’re already connected to the OptiComm network, the connection process should take as little as a few hours (during business hours). If there are any unforeseen issues that arise, this may take a little longer, but we’ll let you know.

Do I need a modem/router?

Your premises should already contain an OptiComm Connection Box, which acts as the modem. You’ll need to purchase a new router to connect from the OptiComm Connection Box to your home network. We highly suggest using a WiFi router so you can browse in cable-free comfort!

Networking devices supplied by MyOwn Tel are fully compatible with all of our fibre broadband access technology types and allow us to provide more in-depth remote support. If electing to use your own device, we will also email you any applicable configuration settings prior to service activation, which you may need to update in your device. While we will attempt to help with this in the event you require assistance, we cannot guarantee your BYO device will work accordingly as we can only officially support the devices we provide directly.

Why would I bother locking into the plan I sign up with?

Locking into your plan gives you benefits such as reduced (or even Free!) activation fees, other freebies (like WiFi routers or other devices from time to time) and the added peace of mind that your monthly plan fee won’t change during the term you’ve chosen.

Why haven't I switched over yet?

We generally find that most connections switch over quickly, however, sometimes things happen that are outside of our control that need attention. A fair few of these occur during the setup process and can range from problems with lead-in-conduit, equipment not being plugged in correctly, damaged cables, and/or your property not being ready. You’ll need to check your setup before lodging a fault with MyOwn Tel, just to be sure everything’s ok on your end first.
