Behodar: Is a Telepermit still required?

Edit: According to the site, it is.

New Zealand law states that "a person may only connect equipment to a network or anything connected to a network that is owned or operated by an operator who has agreed to the connection" (section 106, Telecommunications Act 2001). Telecom's agreement to the connection of any equipment is shown by Telecom issuing a Telepermit.

In other words, you'll need a Telepermit in order to legally connect the phone.


legal smeagal :P just as long as it doesnt blow up the line cards at the exchange :P

Ok so say we do end up moving there and the house has rj45 not BT sockets.

Does that mean you can buy a cable with RJ 11 on one end and RJ 45 on the other ?

Does Australia use RJ45 now in new homes as my RJ11 or 12 connector fits into it at home from the telephone base station.

I don't know what Aus does. The Jaycar catalogue shows RJ12 wall plates and RJ12 to RJ45 cords. It also shows plastic infill reducers to convert a 45 socket to RJ12.

Whatever you have, you will be able to find an adaptor for it.
Lots of places sell BT to RJ11 cables (lots of people will have them hanging round in their junk drawer in the kitchen I suspect).
It is not hard to find an RJ45 to RJ11/12 cable
Modems all come with RJ11 to RJ11 cables because most people plug them into a Plug-in ADSL filter, which has a BT plug (for the wall socket) and a BT Socket for the phone and an RJ-11 Socket for the modem.

Pretty much :)

If anything goes *bang* and Telecom find you have non permitted gear plugged in, the bill goes to you.

Never heard of this happening.  At any rate, the AU standards testing and Telepermit are pretty much identical.

edit: OP, don't panic, you'll be able to get the right cable easily once in NZ, and your phone will work.  Just bring it with you :)

Awesome

If something goes bang, just bury the evidence before they come to investigate.

Here is what Dick Smith emailed

I am not aware of such a cable or adapter ,
there are also regulatory issues with
using a Australia telecommunications device on the New Zealand telephone network.

Their standard reply probably starts "We are not aware..." and they would stick to the "official" position.

DSE are more of an appliance store now, in NZ Jaycar have taken over as the place for a wider variety of components and parts. They do have telephone cords with various terminations.

Edit: DSE in NZ do have an adapter

This US Socket – BT Plug Connects a US RJ11 modular plug to a BT Telecom socket."

If we do end up moving it could be to Gisborne. What would be the best shop (physical) to find the cable with rj11 on one end and the nz type on the other end ?
