Caravan Park MDF921 viewsLocated on the amenities block of a caravan park. The park management want it fixed but Telstra say it's not their problem. The dispute has been running for decades. Who is right? Read this part of the Telecommunications Act. Particularly the part where it specifies that a MDF, to be qualified as a legal Network Boundary Point, must be located in the same building as the user(s).Magilla

Thanks to Cable and Data Communications for the picture907 viewsThis is a business premises. Currently he has 3 phone lines on his phone system and a fax which is four PSTN lines in total. He has applied to Telstra to convert his 4 x PSTN lines from copper to NBN.

NBN have come into his office and mounted 8 x Back-up power supplies, 7 x NTD's and 1 x Fibre housing. The left hand side wall has 4 x NTD's and the right hand side wall has 3 x NTD's .... all in the same room.

We are talking about a room 5m x 3m here.

He only needs 1 x NTD and power supply to connect his lines. What is their thinking.

Thanks goes to teleguy for the picture.900 viewsWires inside joint beyond repair probably due to gel. Temporary fix is to "ringbark" or "cut the throat" under the joint. Wires are then joined between the exposed wiring.Magilla
