Overhead fobre

Overhead fibre on poles

Telecommunications carriers can apply to install aerial cable (Fibre / PSTN / HFC) on our overhead infrastructure such as wood poles, concrete poles, or street light columns across our electricity network.

This process will involve both an application and a Facilities Access Agreement (FAA), which you will need to enter with us. This will detail the legal and commercial responsibilities and other contractual obligations and associated costs for your installation on our network.

Once your design has been accepted and approved by our team and you have a signed FAA with us, your work can begin.

If you are an existing customer seeking an approved Accredited Service Provider for overhead works, please review our list of installers (PDF 92.5 kb).

If you are a new customer and would like to enquire about overhead telecommunication asset requirements on our network, please refer to the following process. We can also talk with you about a FAA, and why this is required.
