As part of an Australian government policy, a new development fee was introduced on April 1, 2016 whereby the costs linked with building new telecommunications networks would be handed down to households and developers.
The new development fee applies to installations at properties where no phone or internet infrastructure has been installed. In most cases this is due to the property being a new development.
If your connection is subject to a new development fee you will be advised when signing up to Dodo nbn.
