G4m3r: I am curious as to why the tech wont work at that height when they have to work up poles in areas where there are aerial fibre which cant be far off 6m.
A few things to consider:

1.The possibility of getting a electrician or network cabling person to run a hybrid cable internally within the walls (if possible) up to the preferred ONT location from the ETP location. Nicer finish and the ONT is where you want it down side is will cost a bit.
Fibre cables are sensitive to tight bends so as long as the cable hasn't been damaged during installation it should all work fine, just contact Transfield before the work is done from boundary to house is done so they get the correct ETP location.

2. (if you are getting voice over the fibre) Where does the voice come from? If its the ONT How is the voice going to integrate back into the house wiring if it is installed back to back?

because they have ladders and climbing gear specifically designed for this, they dont have portable scaffolding or cherry pickers. for climbing up the outside of your house

It all comes down to the fact it's not a standard install. Standard installs are free because they're subsidised. There has to be a limit otherwise there would be a small % of customers essentially blowing the budget.

You typically have to pay for power to be connected to your house, you typically have to pay for gas to be connected to your house, and you typically have to pay for a new copper connection.

I'm no at home this week so no photos sorry. 

But the only barrier I can show you with a photo is a 6.5m wall.

I think I have comprehensively proven it is very difficult to explain this stuff in text.  If you came to my house (don't) you would get it immediately.


DarthKermit: Are you able to post a couple of pictures of the barriers to an easy install? Someone might have a good idea to solve your problems.

I thought that because getting the fibre to our house will be so easy (existing duct, so no trenching/boring etc) they could afford to be a little more generous with the parts of the install that take place inside the house.  Roundabouts and swings.  Turns out that it's more like roundabouts and repeaters
