When do need to let Start know if I am planning to move home?
It’s best if you let us know as soon as you know the dates you will be moving out of your existing address and into your new one. That way we can get things moving as quickly as possible.

If you need a technician to set up your phone line at the new address, this will need to wait until you take possession of the new property.
How do I get my home move process started?
How long will it take to get my service up and running when I move home?
We will work as fast as possible to get you up and running on the Start Network after you move home!
It typically takes anywhere between 1 to 2 weeks, depending on what is already connected at your new address.
If I have nbn™ at my current address will I be able to move it to my new address?
The service at your new address will be dependent on what infrastructure is available. You can rest assured that we will always connect you to the best service available on the Start Network!
Does moving my services to a new address break my current contract?
If you are within your contract period when you move your services to a new address, Start will waive any cancellation costs and relocation costs provided you are willing to enter into a new 24 month contract.
Alternatively you may opt to take a 6 month contract at the new address and move your services for a fee of $99.95.
Can I keep my current number at my new address?
We will do our best to help you retain your current phone number. Home Phone numbers are typically attached to a specific telephone exchange.
This means that if your new address is serviced by a different telephone exchange, you may not be able to keep the same phone number. There are some occasions where keeping your existing number is not possible, for example voice over IP numbers (VOIP) can’t be transferred to the Start Network.
