Time to get connected
If you live in Victoria, your distributor and meter provider are responsible for visiting the site and making the changes to the meter. In most cases, it will take between 20-40 business days to complete a standard work request depending on your distribution area.
If you live in NSW, QLD or SA, your meter provider will complete the changes within 10-15 business days or on a date agreed with you after the distributor has completed the necessary connection and supply work.
