    Well my mum but the bullet and got nbn however the installer had issues with the line he couldn’t find the connection point.

    Does nbn need 1 or 2 pairs?

    I’ll go there and try to find the connection point by poking a few holes in the walls.

    She hasn’t used a phone in years, plus place has been renoed since then.

    1 pair from the lead-in to an internal phone point and no other wiring "starring" off of it..

    Found it.

    Does polarity matter and also what pins on the wall plug are used as 2 and 3 were wired

    "In the 1960s, Telecom Australia (now Telstra" <------- ummm... no, in the 60's, it was known as PMG, I dont think it became Telecom Australia until near end of school (being 76/77) or was it closer to 80, too far back :) ... and Telstra came about in the 90's when they made the stupid mistake of culling off OTC maritime.
