What if I’m moving overseas?

Sadly, we can't provide telecommunications services outside of Australia. Please see this advice on closing your account.

For temporary overseas trips, we can help determine if keeping your account active for the duration of your trip would be more convenient and cost-effective than closing your account and re-opening it upon your return.

Can I keep my home telephone number?

You can keep your phone number in the vast majority of cases.

Exceptions:

  • It's a landline number attached to a specific telephone exchange and you move to an address that’s serviced by a different telephone exchange.
  • You move to a different geographical call zone/area code, e.g. interstate.

 

What happens if a previous occupant has left services connected?

If a previous tenant/owner has left an active phone or broadband service at your new address, we’ll need some paperwork (Proof of Occupancy documents) from you before we can proceed with your relocation.

Once we’ve received valid Proof of Occupancy documents, you should be connected within 10 business days, but 3-5 business days is common.

Proof of Occupancy documents

  • Lease; or
  • Rental Agreement (a.k.a. Residential or Commercial Tenancy Agreement); or
  • Signed Contract of Sale (must be signed, and include settlement date); or
  • Statutory Declaration from the new occupant PLUS a utility bill for a fixed-line service with a service address (e.g. rates, power, water); or
  • Statutory Declaration from the property owner PLUS a rent receipt; or
  • Statutory Declaration from the property owner PLUS a bond payment receipt; or
  • Letter from the real estate agent PLUS a rent receipt; or
  • Letter from the real estate agent PLUS a bond payment receipt.

 

How long will it take?

Connection timeframes vary depending on the type of broadband being connected at your new address. To find out what's available in your area, check your new address on our website.

Connections may be delayed if:

  • The previous occupant has left services connected at your new address. See "What happens if a previous occupant has left services connected?" below for more information.
  • A technician visit is required but you don’t have the keys to your new property yet.

*Actual timeframes may differ based on external factors, technician availability and workload.

Non-standard installations may attract additional costs from our wholesaler - the technician will be able to quote these costs if applicable.

How much will it cost?

We don’t charge additional fees to move a broadband service, but in some cases you may need to pay activation fees to cover the cost of establishing a connection at your new address. You can look up these fees below.

Stick with us and save - we’ll also waive any iiNet broadband contract break fees from the connection at your old address.

When should I start moving my services?

Please call us on 1300 541 714 once you know the date(s) you'll be moving out of your current address and into the new one.

It's best to get the ball rolling at least 2-3 weeks before your moving date.

Please note: If you have iiNet ADSL2+ broadband but your landline phone isn't provided by iiNet , be sure to contact your phone provider too, as your landline phone must be active at your new address before we can relocate your ADSL2+.
