My reading indicates all that _only_ applies to FTTP installations.  FTTN 
installations have no "connection box" supplied by NBN Co. and that's where the 
problem begins.

When an FTTN installation is cut over, the user's POTS service disappears, a 
VDSL2 signal appears on the wire (perhaps an unusable one due to loading by the 
house wiring), and after that it's not an NBN Co. problem.  Thank you, Malcolm.

What do I plug my telephone into?  A modem.
What modem?  That's your problem.
What about the other 'phones I have scattered around the house?  Shrug!
